My psychological archetype is DESTRUCTO! Hoo-rah-roar! *Godzilla screech*

Took the free psychological archetype quiz at lonerwolf.com (which is an absolutely hilarious oxymoron right there) and here is my result.

(Copied and pasted the text, but the images are my own inclusions.)

The Destroyer

One very essential part of our journeys of self-exploration is to understand the underlying motivations that drive a lot of our behavior.

We have the freedom to pursuewhatever we desire, but we don’t have the freedom to choose that which we desire. Have you ever wondered why you want, feel, think and behave the way you do? By analyzing your unconscious mind, you can dig to the very roots of why you are the way you are.

Psychologist Carl Jung developed a human psyche theory of “archetypes” (from the Greek words archein, which means “original” and typos, which means “pattern, model or type”), and it was in this theory that he developed the notion that our minds used “universal images” that lead to distinct psychological behaviors. These behaviors were individually acquired but also inherited from the “collective unconscious” (e.g. past life experiences).

Jung proposed that apart from the Universal Self, Shadow, Anima, Animus and Persona archetypes, there were 12 other commonly found ones. Recently, scholar Dr. Carol S. Pearson and psychologist Dr. Hugh Marr developed a system of self-inquiry based on these universal Archetypes in order to help us find ourselves and transform our paths. Pearson and Marr named their method the Pearson-Marr Archetype Indicator® (PMAI).

When we begin to work with archetypes, we can access the meaning we associate with them fairly simply as these archetypes can be found in most Mythology and fantasy stories. Understanding these archetypal inner guides helps us to:

  • Prepare for our journey of self-discovery by learning how to understand ourselves and our needs.
  • Embark upon our quest by becoming initiated into the mysteries of the human psyche.
  • Return to transform our lives as a result of claiming our uniqueness and personal power.

We all possess most of these archetypes, but some of them are more predominant within us than others. Below is a short outline of the Archetype that you tested for. Each archetype reveals its own values, traits and meanings, as well as the lesson that each guide is trying to teach you about yourself.

The Destroyer (or Rebel)

The Destroyer embodies repressed rage about structures that no longer serve life even when these structures are still supported by society or by our conscious choices. Although this archetype can be ruthless, it weeds the garden in ways that allow for new growth. The Destroyer is a paradoxical character whose destructiveness reflects the instinctual death drive and the inner fear of annihilation. As a fighter, the Destroyer tends to be careless of their own safety, and can sometimes put others in unnecessary danger as well. Their quest is to use their passion in a balanced way that will sustain them.

Shadow Side: The self-destructor. This will manifest itself in your life as the tendency to be prone to addictions, compulsions, or activities that undermine intimacy, job success, or self-esteem. The shadow side of the Destroyer tends to motivate a lot of emotional and physical abuse (domestic violence, murder, rape, suicide, etc.) when completely out of control.

Life Goal: Metamorphosis
Fear: Death, annihilation
Response to Problem: Destroy it, be destroyed by it
Life Task: Letting go, acceptance of mortality
Personal Gifts: Humility, metamorphosis, revolution, capacity to let go
Personal Pitfalls: Doing harm to self/others, out of control anger, terrorist tactics

    1. Eh I’m not bothered, I think it’s all good fun. I know I have the capacity to control my reality through the way I perceive it and engage with life. It’s all “mind games” and mentality. I try to represent myself as honestly as I am, but people often seem to think I’m not allowed to change my mind, or they forget I am an emotional being. Thereby I am not in a constant state of clear, calm lucidity.
      I’m innovative but I’m not very powerful. I lack discipline and the ability to remember “which who when where what are we doing again?” Because my mind is always ticking and processing. Immediately influenced by what I see and hear. That’s why my hubby and I make such a good pair. We constantly learn from each other. And I may be the ideas person, he’s the action and actual follow through.

        1. And if it comes down to symbolism, I can explain how my little family fulfills most units or sets. LOL. I’m red hearts and diamonds, my husband is black clubs and spades.
          So if I’m life, he is death. But he’s n it really death. He’s also life. So perhaps it might be more apt to say he is life and death and I am the sun and the moon. For I go with people through whatever, like a companion, escort, or guide.
          That’s why I like to call myself the gate keeper, or keeper of secrets/keys. If I don’t have the answers I usually know where to direct them. Or something. LOL.
          I’m extroverted to my husband’s introvert. But all because I’m comfortable being seen or heard, doesn’t mean I desire it. I just don’t care because I don’t have anything to hide. I’m like a fortress. “Get in the chopper if you want to live” or the citadel. “you can see me, but you’ll never keep me” or “you can touch me, but you’ll never have me” blah blah etc.

        2. In all seriousness, it would really suck to have Parkinson’s but I try to joke about serious stuff because everyone needs a laugh and a break from their depressing reality.
          So when I referenced Parkinson’s, I was indeed referring to the wibbly wobbly shaky lines that I saw on the diagram. And from your explanation, it makes sense that they would behave in this manner as they separate and collide, the push/pull of forces, perhaps spin a bit as they untangle and entwine. I assume

        3. In Nuclear physics you hold two protons apart by a mass of electrons stabilizing creation once you remove the electron and the protons you have an explosion of energy that expands at accelerating speeds through the cosmos eventually decaying returning to a primordial state of negative energy.  In the Theory of Relativity the idea is you can close the gap between the two particles stopping the expansion of Time and Space in milliseconds 4th Dimension, slowing down the decay rates of radioisotopes .  It is a complex set of algorithms but theoretical possible under string theories.  Quantum physics holds the same premise of two particles that cannot exist in the same space at the sametime without catastrophe consequences to life.  There has to be a stabilizing force of negative energy between the two.

        4. I’m aware. Now, in English please so our readers can understand. Quantum theory uses classical theory as its method of communication because its concepts aren’t explainable. In other words, it’s no good to us unless we can comprehend it. So, the electromagnetic force of the electron pulls outward on the nucleus which is the proton and the neutron. Likewise, they’re nuclear pull keeps the electron in its orbit. It’s not time and space – it’s spacetime. String theory is outdated: lookup M theory. All the 6 string theories have been combined. According to quantum theory, all particles are everywhere at once – as a wave: see the double slit experiment – and only ever appear as particles when observed, thus we really only know that they can and will become particles if you or me become a peeping Tom.

        5. M theory? That’s a laugh. Mother fucking M has been central to my whole online persona and marketing whatever. Meta this and meta that. On Instagram most of my tags are m words. Because m is a bridge, a connector, the mundane material manifestation of the forces and form of existence.

        6. I understand the the theories of both. I know most readers might not understand but I like to have intelligent conversations with people. Not to offend you in anyway but I don’t waste my time I like to learn. Space and Time or Time and Space is like a philosophical question, Which came first the chicken or the egg? For me to answer that question I look to the philosophies of the Eastern cannons to a degree. You have a negative electron that pulls outward keeping the proton and neutron apart once you remove that they will collide and a resulting particle will be created a new one. This flows with the theory of 1948 that you quoted. This is what the scientists at the cern collider are trying to do . I forget what particles they are trying to collide but it has to do with black energy that comes from the resulting collision to find what they call the God particle how a negative energized particle can exist and still have force. This somewhat goes into Quantum Mechanics and Cosmology. They are looking for what glue holds everything together the space between the proton, electron and the neutron there is a force in between those two like a gel for the sake of argument that keeps everything in suspended animation. Somewhere over the course of time all particles decay and a new one is created or life becomes extinguished as we know it. Space will decay but Time will always be Relative multi dimensional and still existing in a stable form. This would be borne out by the Laws of Thermodynamics particlary the 2nd Law, you cannot create something from nothing. This is where I have a problem with mans religions in theological terms. They created gods out of nature around them, animism, from what already appears. The Cern collider expieriments are desgined to see if man can find what they call the God particle if they can it would disprove the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics the man becomes a god able to create and control mankind at thier will. Its no different in secular realm with politically the inclusion in vocabulary words like , climate control and globalism, a projection of thought to control life and make everything a utopia to keep your eyes off decaying rates of Space, time does not decay it relative to everything. You can slow time down, it can become stationary, or you can accelerate it, it still stay the same in the matrix of space. I look forward to further conversations I like to learn from the young people . It helps me to learn in a manner of speaking. Its like the Cern collider experiments your colliding two thoughts together to see what life comes from the one. Is it conducive is it good or is it evil either one can be an absolute two separate wave lengths.

        7. I agree. And I love my physics, but people like you and me who understand it need to help others. It is USEFUL in helping explain what all this is and what WE are. You didn’t offend. I’m just trying to encourage you to find ways to teach it versus just discuss it. If you want to talk details, my email is on contact page and I’d love to chat technicals with you. You’re my peeps in that way!

        8. Sometimes I can come off as arogent, but I am passionate about teaching young people not to fall into a trap. I watched young people die in combat because they second guess themselves on what they have been taught. I was in an Air Assault unit back in the day and got shot out of the air because of faulty intell. I held a young man whose name I never knew dying in my arms crying out for his mother and there was not a damn thing I could do. That has haunted me all my life. I have learned to take any science and reduce it to is common particle and line it up against empirical data in the Laws of Nature to produce an absolute. I can not remember the word in Greek right now but science means to take your best guess. I do not like best guesses that is second guessing without common sense of what you see around you empirical data of Life that surrounds your world. Make sense? You lose your common sense you lose your mind and end up in chaos and confusion and most people project that on to others to self fill an attention deficit in their caricature. It is human nature in man to do that unfortunately they never look at the data around them and create and absolute with empirical data. Good and evil exist within all of us one will always overpower the other on any given day there has to be a neutral third party or particle that keeps the two apart. They cannot exist in the same space at the same time or they will disintegrate totally. Almost the same as looking a Red Star collapsing on itself the matrix,s of it.

        9. I was weeping because there was nothing I could do to save him. I was watching his eyes and became obvious to the sounds of combat all around me and to my own wounds. I saw it in his eyes when the spirit of Life left him. That is when time and space becomes stationary then it accelerates again. I was evac to a hospital. The Army told me that it never happened 900 lives lost because we were in country that no one knew about it was all a training accident as far as the world knew. The Army taught me one thing,”keep it simple”. I live in the Old Testament, wheter you believe in one God or not is immaterily to me. You have three people there, One God, One Male, One Female. If you look at particle physics, you a dominate proton a lesser strength neutron and a negative electron that stabilizes the two from colliding. In the spirituality of philosophy the negative electron pulls us away from the gravitational pull of man into space and time which has no beginning or end. Time and Space has 3 elements to it. Where you are at right now, Time and Space is compressed, outside your window it is always accelerating. It is the third element that poses the problem ie our choices, we can either live time and space as stationary beings or we can accelerate into the heavens and expand our spirits for eternity. I took three particles, God, man, female kept it simple and became multi disciplined in a multitude of sciences and reduced them down to a single projection. Like reducing wine on a fire to reduce it to its purest state. Cooks do it I do it in any area that catches my interest. It becomes simple for me to understand and apply it to my life and to the young people around me.
          I understand how Enoch lived 800 yrs and then disappeared into the heavens past the stars past God into the beginnings of Creation.
          To answer your question did I feel his heartbeat stop, I did but it was his spirit that left at the last. You heart stops but your mind, soul is the last to leave this earth.
          I still weep for that young man because I never knew his name. I always felt guilty it should have been my death for years that haunted my dreams and still to this day but in different parameters. I hope that answered your question. Life for me is a combat field, I trained soldiers how survive in combat , I never taught them how to die. I was given a second chance not to make the same mistake twice. I broke away from the gravitational pull of man now I live elsewhere in Time and Space. I am living rent free in your mind right now, a little joke in space in the darkness of time.

        10. You made me cry. And now… now you’re teaching me and everyone because you’re relating the theories of physics to life. And you are right and I agree and have nothing to add. You said it all. Please keep going. The world needs the wisdom. What else?

        12. You know what I am saying these are slang words for drugs I use to use. The waiter is the person who gave them to me in this case it was my older brother. Dragon is heroin as is the white horse, Black Mollies are downers. No I don’t anymore, I grew up in the 60’s I use the words to have young people think about what they are doing.
          In the Eastern canons of the Aramaic language. they saw life as a wheel always in motion a cyclical like the sun it comes up and it goes down. They did not have verb tenses for the future. A person’s past was his present. Layman terms if you are stationary in the present you were spiritually dead. Which sounds clique in today’s terms. But if you looked to your past and self evaluate yourself then you rebuild yourself into a stable being. This is what it means to be reborn you are recreating the world you were born into. I can take God off the table and go by the Intelligent design of the Laws of Nature and you are still left with three people or particles in the beginning of creation of your world. That is why I can say I am not of this world, I recreated my own world in the spiritual realm of words and thoughts. Projections of thoughts from the past that sit with me in the present and which are ever evolving life around me. Make sense? I write my own blog look at some of my earlier writings and you will notice an evolutionary thought pattern or image. The more I distance myself from gravitational forces behavior and man the stronger I become like an old Texas Rattlesnake who can still kill you and move mountains. The spirit world lies in words and there are multiple dimensions, currently I know of 8 dimensions, mathematically they say there are 25. I myself will find out if that is true. I will dwell on that thought in the 7 days of creation and the answer will come to me over time. By life experiences on the combat field thats how I know that time and space are compressed in milliseconds but it seems like and eternity, like seeing your life pass before your eyes.

        13. I knew because I’ve been there many times. But, I am 3 years clean from everything, including any and all pharmaceuticals, OTC or otherwise. It is important, however, to discuss this. It’s an escape, which is the problem… humans trying to escape, like a proton when it becomes a muon and kaon and ya da ya da, but there is no escape, as you know. And I’m not just referring to illicit drugs, but nearly all human designed things. Nearly anything money can buy is a form of escape.

        14. I was diagnosed as a Manic Depressive, I realized as long as I owned that word it owned me all I was doing was telling the physic boy mimicking back what he had been telling me. Made him rich and kept me in chains to that word. Good and evil cannot exsit at the same time. I taught my myself how to write the more I write the stronger I get. The point being immerse yourself in something you like to do 24/7 and kill the words from the past that made you . I taught myself how to oil paint sold a couple of my paintings over the years but that is not my passion. My passion is to teach young people how to live and not to die in the combat fields of life. I saw enough death and blood in my life.

        15. Numbers in the Aramaic language only denotes a quality of life. Like Enoch 800 yrs is not time but space in time a quality of life for eternity. Look in the mirror and if you see Manic Depressive thats what you will become today. However it you look at the image in the mirror thats what you can become peace and quiet, when the stars and heavens became silent stare at it for awhile and he will appear before you. The Sounds of Silence and Flirting with Disaster great songs.

        1. Same! I have a tendency to make light of serious topics. I have a rather black sense of humour. So I like to make lots of racist, sexist, ageist, disability and crude jokes. Because I don’t believe them, they really are just jokes.
