Some Archetypes

  This can be like a game, identify what you think you are, understand its parameters and obligations.  See how you benefit from staying engaged with it. People often select between three and seven different patterns that are relevant to their lives.  As you mature you may select different archetypes.  You can also use this not just as a mirror but as a tool of reflection on what archetypal influences dominate others in your life.  By studying tendencies of those you love you not only learn about yourself but can lead them towards more understanding of themselves.  This is not a test.  It is a tool and can be used as a meditation, a list of characters for stories you might tell, and an index into understanding a more Jungian approach to thought.
