That part of the unconscious that is personal to an individual.
Jung's term for the personal aspect of the unconscious as opposed to the collective. Synonymous with the Shadow.
It is the personal layer of the unconscious, distinct from the collective unconscious containing lost memories, painful ideas that are repressed and subliminal perceptions.
in Jung's theory, the individual's own unconscious mind, which contains repressed memories. (448)
Often referred to by Jung as â€œNo manâ€™s landâ€ the Personal unconscious is located at the fringe of consciousness. the personal unconscious is situated between two worlds:"the exterior or spacial world and the interior or psychic objective world"(Ellenberger, 707). As Baudouin states: "That the unconcious extends so far beyond consciousness is simply the counterpart of the fact that the exterior world extends so far beyond our visual field" (Ellenberger, 707).
