What Archetype are You?

While checking out Totally RawKin Design blog by Tiffani, she had a great post about archetypes and a link to the self test listed below. I took the self test and it was spot on about me, so I thought I would share it with you today. Thanks Tiffani for sharing the link on your blog.

Archetype (noun) ar·che·type/ˈɑrkɪˌtaɪp/ [ahr-ki-tahyp]
1.the original pattern or model from which all things of the same kind
are copied or on which they are based; a model or first form; prototype.
2.(in Jungian psychology) a collectively inherited unconscious idea,
pattern of thought, image, etc., universally present in individual psyches.

Carl Jung first applies the term archetype to literature. He recognized there was a universal pattern in all stories and mythologies regardless of culture or historical period. He concluded that part of the human mind contained a collective unconscious shared by all members of the human species.

Want to know what some of the archetypes are, here is a list of character archetypes.

Now for something fun. On the Spirituality & Health website they have a self test so you can see what type of archetype you are. (It takes about 3 min to complete)

After you get your results, come back and share with everyone.

    What archetypes are you?

  2. I was just looking at a picture of myself taken yesterday and thought "she looks like a trickster," which really surprised me. This self-test showed "Lover, Jester, Revolutionary, Creator!" Thanks for reposting the link.
