Archetype dream meanings

General Meanings:

Thinking, feeling, sensual and intuitive perception Each person keeps archetypes deeply in his subconscious. In some ways, they are “supernatural” plans. These plans may be accomplished in childhood experiences, socialization, and even through the experience of parenthood, also they can be distorted. C. G. Jung began to study the archetypes and divided their function in thinking, feeling, sensuous and intuitive perception. Each function has “positive” and “negative” characteristics, which can be described with adjectives “more” or “less”. Each of the male and female sides of the personality has these four functions. The perfect balance may be achieved if all sides of the personality can be expressed as:

  • The loving father and loving mother are self-explanatory.
  • The monster represents negative inserted male anger, and the mother can destructively and deliberately destroy or simply suffocate this.
  • The bright young man and the Princess are more amiable, fun-loving personality.
  • The hero is the part of independent, messianic personality.
  • The Amazon stands for self-satisfied female – career woman.
  • The villain is the masculine part of the self, the power to use others for own purposes.
  • The athlete, the typical “women’s libber” who says she doesn’t need any men (like Amazon).
  • The Priest or priestess are the intuitive powers that are available of the “big whole”.
  • The magician/wizard uses his power cruelly and callously.
  • The witch uses her power emotionally and possibly negatively.
