WHAT IS AN ARCHETYPE?
The term “archetype” has its origins in ancient Greek. The root words are archein, which means “original or old”; and typos, which means “pattern, model or type”. The combined meaning is an “original pattern” of which all other similar persons, objects, or concepts are derived, copied, modelled, or emulated.
Although there are many different archetypes, Jung defined twelve primary types that symbolise basic human motivations. Each type has its own set of values, meanings and personality traits.
Most, if not all, people have several archetypes at play in their personality; however, one archetype tends to dominate the personality in general. It can be helpful to know which archetypes are at play in oneself gaining personal insight into behaviours and motivations.
I wish I had a great story as to how I found the test I took but I really don’t remember, perhaps it was the universe guiding me. The test ‘The Primary Archetype Test’ has been crafted by the wonderfully talented and inspirational lady – Cerries Mooney.
THE PRIMARY ARCHETYPE TEST
The Primary Archetype test consists of 13 questions, each one carefully crafted using Cerries’s research and development of archetypal theory. The point of this test is to find out which archetype is most closely aligned with your soul…so you can then structure, build and run your business in the most fulfilling way.
( I had to google the meaning and the word alchemy too, as it’s not one that fits into my vocabulary every day, well not then it didn’t.)
ALCHEMIST / CREATOR
I honestly don’t think I’d be writing this post, let alone have a ‘live’ website had it not been for the clarity that came from finding Cerries’s Archetypal tests. Her amazing assistant Erin who we fondly referred to as “chief joyologist” is on hand to support everyone of us in the amazing community that is – The Alchemy hangout. The Alchemy Hangout has and continues to be a conduit of like minded souls and is without doubt one of the nicest groups on Facebook.
I set out on this journey to understand me, myself and I. My experience was upgraded from economy to business class thanks to this Cerries, Erin and The Alchemy Hangout. It has allowed me to be the woman I am today, I’m no longer hiding, I’m visible to the world, I have confidence in my abilities and I stand tall with love and conviction knowing I’m walking my talk! My soul defining moment was knowing;-
