Does Jungian psychology works best with creative people (high in openness)?

If people who are high in openness aren’t doing something creative then they are lifeless. According to Dr. Jordan Peterson his clients who are high in openness benefits particularly to depth psychological approaches and especially Jungian approach. When he tries Jungian ideas on clients who are high in openness it works “like a charm” and it “fits right in with their psyche”, yet if the client is a fundamentally conservative person (low in openness and high in conscientiousness) Jungian ideas just doesn’t click. That may be because the Jungian approach is aesthetic and creative and a lot of people aren’t either of those things.
