Synopsis:

This is a book to be read for both knowledge and enjoyment!

All people, whether they know it or not, live out their lives according to some “Great Story”. These stories are neither good nor bad, but they do help explain the root causes of their behavior. Every one of these stories, eight of them, will remind you of people you know. As a result, you will learn to appreciate and understand the many individuals in your life all the more.

Why are some men and women aggressive, while others are more caring? Why do some male types get along better with some female types? And what happens when a person, suddenly, in the middle of life, feels moved to live out a different story? You will find answers to these questions.

This book gives you a chance to affirm the great story you have been living all your life. It tells you why you have affinities for some people more than others, and why you have made certain life choices. As a result, you will be helped to make future choices and decisions more consciously and more wisely.

You will find this book to be a UNIQUE CLASSIC in the realms of human understanding. The concepts explained are an enhancement to (not a replacement for) virtually every theory of psychology. These include the theories of Personality Types, Emotional Intelligence, Self-Actualization, the Wisdom of the Enneagram, the MBTI, and all the rest.

This book is about archetypes, unique personality types that comprise the Great Stories that men and women have been living from time immemorial, in every era and in every culture:

  • For women these Stories are named: Mother, Companion, Amazon, and Mediatrix.

  • For men these Stories are named: Father, Seeker, Warrior, and Sage.

  • Each of these is a Great Story in the sense that men and women in every era have found their identity and fulfillment in living one or two of these dramas.

  • Our personal strengths, abilities, instincts, deficiencies, priorities and values all flow from the Great Stories that we live.

Originally, this concept of “human archetypes” was introduced by the psychologist Carl Jung. It has now been expanded upon and further explained in this book in a way that no other authors ever have.
Each of these “archetypes” or Great Stories for men and women refers to a pattern of psychic energy, a way of life, a way of being and becoming a fulfilled human person:

  • Understanding your archetype is a way of understanding who you are and who you are not.

  • Understanding your archetype will tell you a great deal about how you relate to other women, other men, your parents, your children, your peers.

  • Understanding your archetype explains how you receive other people, and how others receive you.

  • Understanding your archetype will tell you about loving, about parenting, and even about your way of conducting business.

  • Marriage, the single life, midlife and old age are all affected by the Great Stories we live.

As you read the Great Stories in this book, you will enjoy seeing yourself, your relatives and your friends in them. You will see the different ways that people live the Great Stories (archetypes), and how these stories interact with one another.

You will enjoy the female dramas of Mother, Amazon, Companion and Mediatrix. Similarly you will enjoy the male dramas of Father, Warrior, Seeker and Sage. As you observe these dramas being enacted in the lives of people you know, you will encounter many reasons to smile!

Enjoy!
