Archetypes

Personality Archetypes serve as “containers” for a combination of certain human attributes and characteristics. Thus, archetypes merely indicate most comfortable traits and mannerism, and DO NOT DEFINE, EMBODY nor DETERMINE any individual's personality.

Human personality is a dynamic, constantly developing, evolving and growing schema that continuously adapt to change and as the context might require. It is impossible to “describe” human personality in such a manner that it is individualized, suitable, reliable and fitting for each and every individual forming a unique part of the 7 billion human inhabitants of this planet.

Thus, the 16 Personality Archetype reflect - using the Dimensions of Human beingness as foundation - 16 “typical personality containers” merely as indicators or reflections that can be used as guidelines to explore individual personality traits, using a theoretical-match as point of departure.

The 16 Personality Archetypes originate from research done by Carl Jung and Meyers Briggs, which eventually cumulated in the widely accepted archetypes (i.e typical personality indicators) that can be identified as follows…
