Archetype test:

Personally, I believe archetypes are a crock of shit (nothing makes me crack up quite so quickly as the idea of a "collective unconscious"), but I figured I'd give it a shot anyway:

B. 9 Explorer. You want to get away from the complexity and conformity of everyday life and take off to have an adventure. Get away from it all and seek out some time to explore who you are, what you want, and what is possible for you.

D. 5 Every person. You appreciate the way that everyone matters, just as they are. This is not time to put on airs, but to roll up your sleeves, do your part, and fit in with the crowd. You do not have to be special to matter.

F. 8 Jester. You want to lighten up. In fact, you are tired of being overly serious. Time to laugh, play, even spend some time making fun of people who are just too hung up to enjoy their lives.

G. 5 Hero. You want to face and overcome a real challenge. You are drawn to test what you are made of. This is not a time to dilly-dally. It is a time to stand up and be counted. Pick a cause and fight for it. Or, find a competitive sport or other activity, and do your best to win.

I. 5 Magician. You have a strong desire to heal or transform people or situations. Now is the time to develop your power. Explore the art of changing your own consciousness in order to influence others. Be the future you want to see.

L. 5 Ruler. You are drawn to power and responsibility and want to be respected and admired. Now is the time to claim your authority and be willing to take on, and fulfill, important responsibilities.


Only issues I have are: I have no desire to heal people, and I certainly hope that I don't like responsibility because I have some latent desire to be admired. That's the wrong way to go through life, just like if you never smile.

Re: Yes. Both.

Thanks much for that, triadruid. Shockingly, it's a humbling experience. Dunno why that is.

I tend to think that I do fake the competence pretty well, though. I tend to try to avoid giving myself a lot of credit. I've seen big heads full of hot air, and I don't want to make the same mistakes they do. There's a difference between knowing somewhere deep-down that you're really a pretty competent and decent person, and shoving it in people's faces. I want to be the former, not do the latter, and I'll fight my ego as much as it takes to maintain that.

As for the women, well, that's something that I cannot explain in any way. Personally, I wonder if there's some foreign power that thinks I have state secrets to sell, and thus keeps sending me beautiful women to try and get it out of me.

Well, if that were true, it would make life more interesting.

Hmm...from the literary persepctive, I am fascinated by archetypal criticism, the collective unconcious, and the anima/animus.

Spiritually, I'm not into it, but I love applying archetypal criticism to literary works. What fun!!!!

Haha. I, on the other hand, LOVE theories of the collective unconscious and archetypes, and all things Jungian. A place we definitely differ. :)
