This diagram shows how one’s behavioral traits and personality works. for example, In the outer world one puts up a mask of persona with which comes ego and the thoughts of how other people would like to view oneself. Hence, keeping oneself conscious all the time and always having the mindset of “What people will think of you?”. But the inner world is the opposite of that. The inner world is where one is truly themselves, where their true identity is present. Where one is calm and collected. The Anima and Animus present in the inner world are the unconscious gender traits of the opposite gender for the e.g. Every Male would have his unconscious Anima(feminine personality traits) and every Female would have her Animus(masculine personality traits).
Many fans of BTS fandom the Army are making all the possible theories regarding this topic and the comeback. BTS members mentioned in their tweet that they worked really hard for this comeback and they’re too excited for it.
