There is a period of disturbance from word 7 to word 11. There were also disturbances in two words not given here: "pointed" and "beat." When asked about the meaning of the keywords, the subject became uncomfortable and wanted to leave the room.
This test was carried out by C.G. Jung on a patient whose background and history were entirely unknown to him. When Jung finally got the story out of him that was attached to these words, it turned out that the subject, when a young man, had lived abroad and had been put in prison for six months for wounding a man with a knife. The disturbance in the following words might be a carryover from the stimulus of the word "knife," or they might easily be seen-at least the words "help," "weight," and "finish"-as being associated with the moral issues involved and with the psychological treatment he was receiving. (See C. G. Jung, Modern Psychology: Notes on Lectures given at the Eidgenň~-sische Technische Hochschule, ZŠ«▓ich, 2nd ed., vol. 1 (ZŠ«▓ich, 1959), p. 117.)
In the case of the anomalous transfer of information, such as in ESP or remote viewing, the complexes have a much more specific function that can be detailed out. For example, should a person have a serious death complex, he or she would probably suppress or distort any transmission of information that related to death. This has different levels of wah-distribution:
Normal death complex, suppression or distortion of information closely associated with:
Medium energy complex, suppression and distortion of information that is less directly related to death:
black clothes and cars
Seriously neurotic complex, suppression and distortion of information remote from the idea of death:
dead grass and leaves
holes in the ground
large boxes of any kind
Of course, people can have a complex about anything, and these can be identified in some detail by the methods of the association experiment.
