Just as there are two sides to every coin, there are two sides to every personality. Each of us is conscious of our own self in that we know how we act, what we do, and what’s going through our minds. At the same time, we are also unconscious of different parts of our personalities and at all times are unknowingly repressing them.
This unconscious aspect of our dual personalities is called the shadow self. It has been analyzed and examined by some of the greatest minds of our time and the famous psychologist Carl Jung described it as being the dark side of our personality, hence the term ‘shadow self.’ He posited that this area of our personality is controlled by very basic, animal-type instincts and it’s plagued by uncertainty, doubt, and illogical thoughts.
While it certainly sounds all dark and terrible, it’s not all doom and gloom. Our shadow self has a silver lining and can prove to be an asset for many of us. That’s because it is believed to be a strong source of creativity for people who are able to positively tap into it. It’s also thought to be linked into the psychological reasoning for as to why mankind values life, society, and freedom so highly.
