unconscious (Jungian)

( personal unconscious )

That portion of the psyche which is outside conscious awareness. The unconscious expresses itself in dreams, fantasies, obsessive preoccupations, slips of the tongue and accidents of all kinds. Jung distinguishes two layers of the unconscious: the personal unconscious derived from one's own experience, and the collective unconscious containing the universal patterns and images called archetypes.
