  • Jung’s Word Association Experiment has been used for many years to uncover complexes in individuals as a way of unearthing singular psychic constellations. This project focused on the complexes and ultimately archetypes that were uncovered through Jung’s test. Although the Word Experiment itself is both qualitative and quantitative in nature, particular interest is placed on the heuristic component surrounding my personal experience and subsequent interpretation of the results. This thesis delved into complex indicators that were revealed during my experience with the Association Experiment to uncover underlying complexes and ultimately archetypes that may have contributed to my attraction to a career in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. This method of inquiry was chosen because it best addressed a method to probe into my unconscious for clues about why I elected the dynamic career of policing. My interest in this inquiry was fueled in part because no one else in my family history has displayed a desire for a career in policing; most particularly the women.
