A first impression is made in 20 seconds or less according to the way one looks, speaks, walks and gestures. Human nature innately groups these qualities into Archetypes. An Archetype is a prototype, unconscious idea or image universally present in the human psyche.

Eighteen years of research with micro-expressions and the internal experience of type, suggest that archetypes can be mapped on the facial characteristics in a surprisingly consistent way, thus supporting an increasingly evident anthropological/physiological component to personality typing.

This presentation will reveal the underlying visual component to the archetypes, and its intrinsic link to the 9 Enneagram Types. With a multitude of visual exemplars, Katherine will introduce the seven primary Archetypes: Priest/Priestess, Server, Artisan, Sage, King/ Queen, Warrior and Scholar and their correlation to the types.

Participants will learn that all 7 Archetypes can be found in each Enneagram Type, but that each Enneagram Type has a stereotype. Participants will also discover why, for example, a “Warrior” 8w9 Archetype such as Russell Crowe will be a more typical example of an 8 than a “Priest” 8w7 Archetype like Sean Penn, or the rare “Artisan” 8w7 Archetype like Gurdjieff.
