SIX WORD » QUESTIONS

Of eight ARCHETYPES, who are you?

by Dhani on April 5, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr


After studying Chris Vogler's A WRITER'S JOURNEY', where he delineates the eight major ARCHETYPES for characters in a Memoir, I immediately identified with TRICKSTER HERO (aka Clown, Gadfly, Joker). One can identify with more than one archetype, but the reader should find one that truly resonates with her life now:

8 Archetypes, not necessarily in any order.

HIGHER SELF
SHAPE SHIFTER
THRESHOLD GUARDIANS
TRICKSTER
SHADOW
HERALD
ALLIES
MENTOR
