engaging in shadow projection

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.”

– Carl G. Jung

Carl Gustav Jung suggested that everything we feel about (or see in) another person is comprised of about 75% of our own “stuff”, our infamous shadow (i.e., the unconscious aspects of ourselves) – which we project, in either positive or negative ways, onto others; but in reality, such perceptions really have nothing to do with the other person. A more accurate indicator of an individual’s character and intentions are based on one-on-one interactions with them in real life, from a place of grounded awareness of self and the experiences which accompany that ‘work’.
