Iconic Psychiatrist Carl Jung on Human Personality in Rare BBC Interview | Brain Pickings

Iconic Psychiatrist Carl Jung on Human Personality in Rare BBC Interview by Maria Popova   “Man cannot stand a meaningless life.” Legendary Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung (July 26, 1875–June 6, 1961), along with his frenemy Freud, is considered the founding father of modern analytical psychology. He coined the concepts of collective consciousness and introverted vs. extroverted personality, providing the foundation for the popular Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. Though famously accused of having lost his soul, Jung had a much more heartening view of human nature than Freud and memorably wrote that “the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.” On October 22 of 1959, BBC’s Face to Face — an unusual series of pointed, almost interrogative interviews seeking to “unmask public figures” — aired a segment on Jung, included in the 1977 anthology C.G. Jung Speaking: Interviews and Encounters (public library). Eighty-four at the time and still working, he talks to New Statesman editor John Freeman about education, religion, consciousness, human nature, and his temperamental differences with Freud, which sparked his study of personality types.

8 Signs You’re a Bridezilla : Brides

You know the warning signs — toddler-like tantrums, mascara-stained cheeks, immaculately organized wedding binders that weigh more than a flower girl — yet somehow it’s happened to you … You’ve become a Bridezilla. You may think this overused title is solely reserved for reality TV and romantic comedies, but the reality is high expectations mixed with unexpected circumstances — also known as wedding planning — can be a cocktail of disaster that even the sanest souls can’t stomach. If you suspect the process might be getting the better of you, here are eight ways to tell you’re entering the Bridezilla danger zone. 1. You can’t remember what compromise feels like No, we don’t think your fiancé’s burning desire for a life-sized cake replica of Michael Jordan was totally reasonable either, but if you’ve gone through your entire wedding planning process without making one single little compromise, then chances are people are scared of you. 2. You’ve taken the term “color-coordinated” too far No, you do not need to tell grandpa what color socks he should wear. Unclench the fists … there we go. 3. You’ve memorized your vendors phone numbers What you call time efficient, non-Bridezillas call creepy. 4. Your Pinterest wedding board is now your homepage We love Pinterest, too, but c’mon.

You’ve started murmuring “champagne, not ivory!” in your sleep Well, there really is a monumental difference… 6. You forgot what your groom looks like So, this one is especially troubling since...
Wedding Planner vs Wedding Coordinator

Wedding Planner vs Wedding Coordinator

Guest Article by San Diego Wedding Planner Brenda Swann of Swann Soirées. Wedding Coordinators, we are a dime a dozen in San Diego! What isn’t a dime is the difference in our pricing. Sorting through all the service inclusions can be a task all of it’s own, confusing and overwhelming, especially when it comes to the fine print… if it is even there. Because my friend Ed is so rad, he gave me the honor of authoring this short guide to help you understand the ins & outs of not just hiring a Wedding Coordinator, but also understanding what your investment means. Wedding Planner vs Wedding Coordinator The first thing that needs to be understood is that a Wedding Planner and a Wedding Coordinator is not the same thing, however, one must be BOTH in order to be truly efficient. Anyone that has ever planned anything knows that you need to coordinate plans and plans have to coordinate. As a matter of fact, I’ll be the first to admit that when I was merely moonlighting as a Wedding Coordinator, I made sure clients hiring me knew I was not a planner, for I was only working for them ON the day of their wedding… not before in any sense. Which meant I didn’t answer panic phone calls in the middle of the night, I didn’t dole out advice on etiquette or detail styling, I didn’t call your vendors the week of the wedding, write your timeline, or even have an emergency kit. My job as a Day of Coordinator was to show up and put out fires during the...
