I like Man and His Symbols by Jung a lot. The Trickster is mentioned in there. It's such an important archetype. Mentioned in very many places. I just found out that there's even a book called The Trickster (Radin, P., 1956, with an introduction by Jung).

Tough question, I guess ... Some thoughts based on my own experience. In my case I was involuntarily in a symbiotic relationship with my original family. Getting out of that freed up what felt like infinite amounts of energy. Spiritual stuff helps me a lot. Like in AA for instance (their books) (red...

Jungian stuff and dream interpretation are perhaps pretty much my main obsession ... :) I never used to remember dreams at all so as a kid I was sure I never slept. One or two years into my first therapy I suddenly started to remember long clear dreams! I felt I was finally seeing a glimpse of the r...

I have been at WP a few weeks by now so maybe it's time for a small introduction. I need to keep this very brief because I am pretty sensitive to feeling loss of privacy. Born and raised in Sweden. Have twin sister. Also a kid sister. I have hyperlexia. Taught myself to read and write and age 2. Sch...

I'm still very new to WP .. big motivation for me is still getting used to make posts at all .. never mind the content .. (-: what popped up reading about Gimpel the Fool was just this (silly?) thing .. the more a person is part of a social structure .. i suspect the less they will feel and be consc...

I've loved Jungian stuff for a long time by now. just speaking straight out here .. I feel Gollum in Lord of the Rings is a very typical Trickster. The ultimate good guy, actually. I mean he's the one saving the world at the end .. yet being sneaky and shifty throughout. never really taking sides. N...

Seeing Aspergia discussed made me think of a short story by a favourite writer of mine. The Marching Morons by C.M. Kornbluth.

To me that story feels a bit like how perhaps an Asperger world would be like. Though extremely exaggerated I guess .. lolol (it is beyond elitistic).

Very ineresting and important question in my experience. Kind of alienation perhaps. Feeling separate in a very painful way. Suggestions have been made of learning to see and separate people you might get along with and those (majority) you will most likely never like or get along too well with anyw...
