Have you ever wondered why you are drawn to certain people, ideas or products and turned off by others? Are you constantly searching for something you can't put your finger on, or wondering whether you are living a life that truly fits?
In Archetypes, New York Times bestselling author Caroline Myss delves into the world of archetypes, which have been the subject of her work for more than 25 years. Archetypes are universal patterns of behavior that, once discovered, help you better understand yourself and your place in the world. In short, knowing your archetypes can transform your life.
Whether we’re aware of it or not, each of us identifies with certain universal myths and symbols, otherwise known as Archetypes. In this new work, Myss covers ten primary archetypes: Caregiver, Artist, Fashionista, Intellectual, Rebel, Queen/Executive, Advocate, Visionary, Athlete, and Spiritual Seeker. She helps us to determine which archetypes best define us as individuals, laying out each archetype’s unique path, hidden strengths, and potential weaknesses.
By identifying our personal archetypes, we can gain the knowledge necessary to consciously define and live an authentic life that reflects who we really are. Myss also includes suggestions for embracing one’s archetype to the fullest, providing tools for avoiding common pitfalls and daily practices for enhancing the positive qualities of each archetype. In addition to the ten archetypes above, there’s a glossary covering more than 20 sub-archetypes.
Much like highly popular books on the enneagram, Myers & Briggs, and astrology, which also allow people to type themselves, Archetypes is destined to become a classic.

Interestingly, every categorization related to being an intellectual is negative, and comes with many other negative personality traits. Perhaps more of an insight into the author's own personality. Nothing else receives such constant criticism as intellectualism. Was she was found lacking in this area (if this book in indication of her abilities), and it's coming out in her constant criticism? It is ironic, though, that she touts herself as so smart for thinking this all up, and then attacks intellectuals!
I found this book so interesting that I could not put it down and finished it in one sitting. Even though I always knew that I loved numerous sports and martial arts all my life, this book also made me realize that I also can identify clearly with other Archetypes such as the intellectual, artist/creative, the spiritual seeker and definitively the warrior.
This easy to read volume covers the following material: Archetypes: the new inner-net, your personal journey, the advocate, the artist/creative, the athlete, the caregiver, the fashionista, the intellectual, the Queen/Executive, the rebel, the spiritual seeker, the visionary, and the archetype gallery.
If you are seeking to find out who you are this book points the way by exploring numerous archetypes. You may find your true calling or you may discover like I have, that you are a combination of many archetypes.
