Submissions and Style Guide


Personality Type in Depth, PTD, publishes articles that relate to the interface of psychological type and depth psychology and seeks articles that demonstrate unusual subject matter expertise or relate personality type to other subjects. Contributions may focus on theory, research, applications, case studies, personal stories, or exercises for practitioners, or they may tie multiple approaches together, for example, application with research and theory. Articles commonly range from 3,000 to 4,000 words, but any length will be considered. For inquiries or to submit an article, contact: the editors.

General Style Conventions

We follow APA Style with few exceptions.

Parenthetic references to Jung’s Collected Works should provide paragraph numbers, not page numbers, using the paragraph symbol, for example, “(1921/1971, ¶ 345).”

Do not capitalize the common Jungian archetypes nor the Beebe archetypes. Use lower case for the attitudes, the eight function-attitudes, and for Jungian usages, for example, extraversion, introverted sensation, sensate, judgment, perception. Use initial caps only if referring specifically to the MBTI® scales or dichotomies, for example, Sensing, Judging, et cetera.

Ethical Use
Avoid stereotyping specific personality types or type preferences.
