From the Publisher
''Archetypes,'' the latest work from ''New York Times''
best-selling author Caroline Myss, offers readers an engaging and
illuminating way to better understand themselves and those closest
to them. 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. Its publication is set to coincide with the
launch of a major new social platform, www.ArchetypeMe.com, where
users can take a quiz to discover their archetype and find an
individualized experience around content and community.
