JUNGIAN ARCHETYPES/ORIGIN: Carl Jung's Archetypes show the different personalities within a person. EXPLANATION: Different archetypes can represent different personalities of a person, or multiple people. EXAMPLE: Similar to the Shadow in Jungian Archetypes, Peter Pan's shadow can represent chaos and trouble.
This infographic gives brief summaries of the 12 Jungian personality archetypes, for use when building charcaters. As with any writing tools, archetypes are really most useful if you think of them as a starying block - you cannot simply reduce people to 12 options. Most people will show traits from multiple categories. As a writer, you may want to think about each character's primary and secondary archetypes. As always, remember: Tools, not rules!
