So, apparently, inside each woman there are seven different ‘archetypes’ that work together to build our personality. Kind of like the emotions in Inside Out, but a bit sexier and more emotional. Because you know, that’s all women are. Sexy and emotional.
And, apparently, each one of us has a main archetype that dominates our personality. But these archetypes are all rather general, and Maltese people tend to create their own rules. So how do us feisty Maltese women fit into these archetypes?
Before we find out, lets look at what the archetypes are.
1. The Lover
She represents a woman’s primal urge to connect and create.
She is passionate, erotic and seductive. But she is also very vain, and her self-esteem is so fragile it could shatter with a single look.
2. The Maiden
The Maiden is youthful and effervescent, but not entirely sure of who she is.
Think ‘Manic Pixie Dream Girl’. She’s both an obedient daughter and a rebellious leader. And everybody loves her, until they get to know her.
3. The Mother
Dominant, a caretaker and the most responsible person you know.
No matter their age, The Mother will always be there to protect those younger than her. But this sometimes means she doesn’t know how to respect people’s boundaries, and can forget about keeping herself a priority.
4. The Queen
She’s the group leader, loyal to all those who follow.
She’s there to support her partner and feels incomplete without a man by her side. She gets competitive when people threaten her position, but will also keep the good of those around her in mind.
5. The Huntress
The Huntress is a strong independent woman who don’t need no man.
She’s very goal-oriented and will stop at nothing to get what she wants. But that means that she’s pretty much emotionally unavailable, and can be quite cruel at times.
6. The Sage
She’s clever, full of worldly knowledge, and encourages discipline in herself and her surroundings. The Sage is practical, competent, and competitive. She is often considered to be quite intimidating and isn’t often liked by other women.
7. The Mystic
The Mystic represents homeliness, comfort and peace.
She might be introverted, but she is comfortable in her own skin. She’s all about that spiritual life, but sometimes can come off as pretty frigid.
So, which one are you? Take the quiz below to find out
P.S. Don’t be fooled, the answer might not be what you’re expecting.
You’re none of the archetypes, and you’re all of them.
The truth is, nobody can be put into a box. You may have been expecting – maybe even hoping for – a specific answer. If that’s who you want to be, run with it. But if there’s one thing for certain; its that you are #noprincess and don’t need any saving.
And if you’re confused, keep an eye out on Studio18‘s Facebook page
They’re launching the #noprincess initiative that forms part of their latest production, DripFeed.
DripFeed is an original play written by Rebecca Brewer that will be debuting in Malta later this month. And I can guarantee you that there are definitely no princesses in this story.
