What’s your signature code that brings your personal brand to life?
The key lies within the feminine archetypes.
Understanding yourself is a critical first step in being able to communicate your message to the people who need to hear it.
Archetypes, or typical examples of personalities, have long held a mythical appeal and are key to how our subconscious minds view the world.
Carl Jung first theorized that certain thought patterns, which he called archetypes, find parallels across all individuals and cultures. These universal characterizations, such as the Mother, the Child, and the Hero, make up our unique personalities and how we interact with others.
At Brand Like Hers, we’ve reimagined these archetypes for feminine brands. These archetypes are a reflection of your true self. Your archetype captures your personality traits and helps you define your motives, values, and visual identity. It’s a way to zero in on your leadership strengths and will help you understand yourself as you develop your own personal brand.
We’re a blend of these archetypes no matter what situation we’re in. However, we do have a dominant archetype (sometimes multiple). Knowing our main archetype can help us shape our personal brands and develop offerings around these archetypal strengths.
Here’s an overview of all the archetypes you’ll find in our Feminine Brand Archetype quiz!
