Thinking about archetypes

Who am I in terms of the archetypes that I have been raised with? What unconscious roles have they played in my life? How many times have I consciously made a decision or action based on an archetypal role? Do these ideas of the feminine really define me? or do they box me in and categorize me?

"We call something archetypal when we believe that it is basic, necessary, universal; the trouble comes when we begin to believe that what we have valued is the essence of what is real (10)."

"Feminine Archetypal Theory" Estella Lauter and Carol Schreier Rupprecht
