This implies that we each have an anima and an animus. That is not what C.G. Jung was saying regarding the two. The anima is the unconscious manifestation of "femaleness" within the male mind. The animus is the unconscious manifestation of "maleness" within the female mind.

So, only one of the two would be present in each person. The union of polar opposites is the mind coming to terms with the unconscious representation of the opposite gender within itself.
