Archetypes in Action is a nine-unit webinar course offering participants an opportunity to individually engage with the eight archetypal personalities that populate the eight-function, eight-archetype model of psychological type.
What you will learn:
- The role of each archetype
- What activates each archetype
- How to recognize when the archetype is engaged
- The consequences of over using or underusing an archetype
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.
Composed of 9 sessions, each of two and a half hours duration (a total of 22.5 hours), the course will be led by MBTI® Master Practitioners Bob McAlpine (ISTJ) and Adam Frey (ISFJ).
