Seminar

Mary Tomlinson
Jung’s Word Association Experiment
Sun., Oct. 29
10am-12:30pm

Jung became interested in developing and testing his Word Association Experiment (WAE) early in his career while he was working at the Burgholzli hospital in Zurich. In fact, this work provided much of the impetus towards the first meeting between Freud and Jung who felt that it showed proof of the existence of complexes. Since then, the WAE has been found to be a useful tool that helps identify and measure our complexes or ‘hot spots’ via spontaneous, timed responses to 100 trigger words. It actually forms the basis of today’s lie detector test. The WAE lifts a veil to your complexes that you can’t necessarily approach directly. It yields hidden clues by making its way around a person’s defenses. It can be thought of as the mirror that Perseus used to cut off the head of the rageful Medusa without ever having to look directly at her.
