The psychoanalyst Carl Gustav Jung believed that there was a feminine beginning, or female part of the psychic setup, in the subconsciousness of every man. He gave it the name "Anima", which is "soul" in translation from Latin.
The anima is a personification of a man's feminine psychological qualities, such as haziness and vagueness of feelings and moods, emotional sensitivity, prophetic insights, susceptibility to the irrational and the capability for individual love. If a man does not try to relate with his anima, he gets what Jung called "a loss of soul", i.e., a lack of vitality, flexibility and humaneness.
