Archetype

In Analytical Psychology, a method of psychoanalysis pioneered by Carl Gustav Jung, the concept of a primitive form of thought that serves as the backbone for our stories and literature is known as an Archetype. Archetypes are cultural tropes and conventions, prototypical images that can potentially be represented as beings of thought or characters in myth. There are many Archetypes that exist in Jungian philosophy: what follows are a list of the more common and relevant Archetypes. More often than not, you can find your tulpae will fit under at least one classification of Archetype. For more detailed Archetypes, see the Ego and the Shadow.

  • The Hero?: Strong and bold, slaying dragons and rescuing fair maidens. Youth, at his finest.
  • The Wise Man?: A guru who guides you through life and difficult existential problems with unlimited wisdom.
  • The Daimon?: A mediator involved in the regulation of your unconscious and conscious mind. A guide to completion of the Self.
  • The Twins?: Duality, the idea of 'two'. Yin and Yang.
  • The Child?: Purity, innocence. Something to protect.
  • The Trickster?: Youth and a desire for pleasure through pranks and clever tricks.
