Breakout Session: Nicole Gruel
Exploring STEs And Their Aftereffects Through Jung’s Typology
Does psychological type influence how we integrate and make meaning of life-changing STEs? If so, how? This presentation will share preliminary findings from doctoral research that explored these questions. Twenty experiencers were interviewed about how they integrated and made meaning of life-changing STEs, and data was analysed through the lens of Jung’s typology. The immediate and long-term aftereffects of the STEs reveal both positive and challenging aspects in the biological, psychological, social, and spiritual dimensions. The STEs reported are manifold and include kundalini awakenings, near-death experiences, out-of-body experiences, revelation, divine encounters, paranormal experiences, psychedelic experiences, and spiritual crises. Adding a new dimension to existing research is the use of the Gifts Compass Inventory, a newly developed instrument that measures psychological type preferences and allows for nuanced results in keeping with Jung’s original descriptions of typology. Through examples this presentation will share key findings.
