Here are some simple categories you can use for yourself or when teaching in this field.
We use these frequently in men’s circles.
This is an intuitive list I put together which is constantly evolving, nothing fixed or crystallyzed about it.
Some questions for you:
– WHICH ARCHETYPES DO YOU EMBODY THE MOST?
– WHICH ARCHETYPES ARE CHALLENGING OR ALIEN TO YOU?
– IN YOUR CORE ARCHETYPES, WHAT ARE YOUR MATURE AND IMMATURE ASPECTS?
– WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU ADD? (Did I miss something?)
I know I stretched it a bit by adding archetypes like merman or alien.
But in truth these are archetypes that some of us might feel identified with.
Also the “Female” archetype for a man emerged lately strongly as well as we might sometimes fully embody the feminine energy as one of our core archetypes as men.
I’ll post soon the equivalent archetypes for women. In my experience, they are pretty similar but good to see them written down gender specific.
It’s a vast topic!
More on this coming soon!
How to use this archetypal model
This model helps us understand what we do and how we function.
It gives us as well the expansion fields, potential areas for solid growth when we see the archetypes that are under used or overused.
For instance you might see a man in prince mode moving into king/father archetype as soon as he gets a child.
If you are a creator type it might explain why the field of politics or leadership feels awkward.
You might see an old man trapped in child mode.
You might see a teenager activating his king from young age.
And yes, sometimes you can alter, modify, reinforce a certain archetype by CONSCIOUSLY activating it.
You might activate your warrior power by challenging yourself.
Or you might break the norms and find inner freedom by activating the fool in you.
It’s just a model, a conceptual plan that gives you a road map to potentially navigate your personality more successfully.
Gene keys, human design, enegram, astrology, etc… All these are approaches are parallel models that aim in the same direction:
If you are a woman, your female archetypes are here
