"Unfortunately,” wrote Carl Jung in Psychology & Religion, “there can be no doubt that man is, on the whole, less good than he imagines himself or wants to be. Everyone carries a shadow, & the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker & denser it is. If . . . it is repressed & isolated from consciousness, it never gets corrected.” According to Jungian psychology, those who don’t acknowledge their shadows project them onto others.
