The lack of knowledge among Western personality trait theorists on human inner structure is the reason behind the forthcomings of many theories of contemporary personality traits. Their scientific framework constrained their analytical process and synthetic conception of human as whole. Carl Gustav Jung made a breakthrough when he developed a psychological analytical framework which taking in to account mythology data and a lot of religious symbols in his scientific work. Formulating the Spiritual Intelligence (Spiritual Quotient [SQ]) is not solely based on observing the parallel of Western scientific outcome with Eastern mystical phenomenon. In reality, we are forced to interpret the spiritual metaphysical phenomenon based on physics and neural science, which generates more paradoxes than answers. This article discusses human inner structure base on Al-Quran then we will discuss which fundamental problems have direct relation with Jung’s theory and Spiritual Quotient’s status in this map.
