The best thing you could do is master the chaos in you.

You are not thrown into the fire. . . you are the fire.

What the eff even are archetypes?!

Archetypes were first introduced by famous psychologist Carl Jung way back in the 1940’s.

If you wanna’ know more about the Jung’s theory, you can read my post over here, or you could just Google it. There are about a gajillion and one articles out there that talk about them.

So instead of trying to summarize his life’s work, this page is my version of how you can apply these babies to your business + life.

Let’s dive the heck in.

Online Entrepreneurs

The Creator is one of my favorite Brand Archetypes because it’s my primary Brand Archetype. So I’m just a little bit biased.

But here’s the cool thing: pretty much every, single entrepreneur that has ever existed has at least a little bit of the Creator somewhere in them. You have to be a creative thinker to be an entrepreneur. There’s no way around it.

Paul Jarvis // Online Course Creator

Paul is my favorite example of the Creator for one reason – simplicity.

I love the simplicity of his brand. Everything from his marketing strategies to his website design are incredibly simple and incredibly clear. His homepage says “I help people build better (not bigger) businesses.” And he embodies that mission in every piece of content he creates.

Oh, and he’s KILLING IT with his “Sunday Dispatches” newsletter. It has fantastic content and I look forward to it every week.

Fictional Characters

Did you know that the archetypes all have a “shadow side” too? That’s why I’m showin’ ya the GOOD and the BAD side, so make sure to hover over the imagesto learn how each character fits the Creator Archetype.

THE GOOD Side

Flik

Flik is the ultimate Creator. Honestly, he’s an entrepreneurial genius. His inventions are pretty sweet, and he never gives up! Even when all the other ants think he’s crazy, he saves them from the evil Hopper and his gang of jerks.

THE BAD Side

Syndrome

Syndrome represents the dark side of the Creator Archetype. He’s obsessive and arrogant, but he’s incredibly smart and his inventions are pretty amazing. Creator villains are usually the hardest ones to defeat!

THE GOOD Side

Daredevil

Matt’s powers are truly incredible. He went blind in an accident as a kid, but since then, he has continued to develop enhanced control and skill to express himself (and kick ass) with his other 4 senses.

THE BAD Side

Mystique

Mystique is a mutant / supervillian / assassin / shapeshifter / Creator Archetype. She’s highly skilled at mimicking others, both in appearance and voice, which she uses to her advantage.

THE GOOD Side

Cedric Diggory

Before Robert Pattinson went all sparkly-emo, he was Cedric Diggory in HP. Cedric was highly skilled and a natural leader, making him a perfect Creator. But then he got murdered. Ugh.

THE BAD Side

Voldemort

Gah, isn’t he such a good villain?! I mean, he’s just so terrible, but he’s so smart, right? My personal fav is the Chamber of Secrets when he uses a book to wreak all kinds of havoc. He really is the BEST Creator villain.

THE GOOD Side

Samwell Tarly

Sam could easily have been a Sage, but not today! His Creator side is often overlooked. He’s a highly intelligent, outside-the-box thinker that saves the day on more than one occasion with his creative thinking.

THE BAD Side

Joffrey Baratheon

Yikes. Remember I said that Creators usually make the worst villains (best villains?) and Joffrey is no exception. This guy is just pure evil. But it does takes some serious creativity and imagination to come up with the shit he pulls.

My favorite part… Music! 

My favorite part… Music!  

Rock n roll, baby

Words As Weapons // Seether

“All I really want is something beautiful to say.” That pretty much sums up the Creator mentality. We (I’m a creator!) have a strong internal drive to create on our own terms.

Country

The Devil Went Down to Georgia // Charlie Daniels Band

I mean, how confident must you be in your craft to challenge the actual devil…? But good thing Johnny’s a Creator because he is the best there’s ever been.

Pop

Applause // Lady Gaga

One of the flaws of a Creator is the tendency to be a bit of a prima-donna.But hey, at least we have the skill to back it up! I kid… I actually have a lot of respect for this badass lady!

My favorite Creator song

Live Loud // Eye Empire

If you don’t know me yet, you should know I’m a bit of a music snob. And I’m really proud of it.

Sure, I can appreciate the occasional pop-y song for fun, but my heart lies with the true musicians who write and play their own music.

So it’s only fitting that this is my favorite song for the Creator Brand Archetype.

I absolutely love this song. It embodies all of the positive and negative aspects that the Creator lives with day-to-day.
