Animus and Anima: 2 Essays by Emma Jung

“The real thinking of woman … is pre-eminently practical and applied.

It is something we describe as sound common sense, and is usually directed to what is close at hand and personal….

In general, it can be said that feminine mentality manifests an undeveloped, childlike, or primitive character; instead of the thirst for knowledge, curiosity; instead of judgment, prejudice; instead of thinking, imagination or dreaming; instead of will, wishing.

Where a man takes up objective problems, a woman contents herself with solving riddles; where he battles for knowledge and understanding, she contents herself with faith or superstition, or else she makes assumptions.” ~Emma Jung, Anima and Animus
