Archetypes in Action
Common speech reflects the notion that there are different facets to our personality. We may say, for example, "I’d never seen that playful side of her before,” or, "I had no idea he could be so ruthless! I guess you don’t fully know someone until you’ve seen him work under pressure.”
What Jung and especially John Beebe have observed is that there is a relationship for each of us between the eight functions of consciousness and the different aspects of our personality. When we fall into a certain archetypal role—hero, parent, trickster, or inner child, for example—we tend to express ourselves through a particular function of consciousness. Conversely, when we are called upon to use a certain function of consciousness—extraverted sensation, for example, or introverted feeling—we will tend to do so using the energy of the archetypal role that is associated, for us, with that function.
