Gurdjief's system includes viewing the human consciousness as being primarily divided into three fundamental elements
Also he postulates Objective Conscience as a function of a morally-superior (healthier) mind.
This is similar to the Jungian view of normal personalities as having thinking and feeling/intuition-centered elements.
Gurdjieff's beliefs are particularly consistent with Jung's on the specific point of instinct, which also reemerges in Maslow's and also Janov's work - in regard to healthy (normal) vs. neurotic (abnormal) perception/motivation.
