This is an interesting way to approach the tricky issue of trying to uncover one's inner self. It involves looking at archetypes and finding which ones resonate with oneself. This also means looking at the 'shadow' side of the archetype and seeing how far it applies. She outlines a good method for identifying twelve appropriate archetypes, but does not give enough information about archetypes, nor enough archetypes to consider. You feel that her choice is arbitrary. She also includes several types under one heading, for example, the Guide includes the Crone, the Wise woman, the Spiritual master, the Evangelist, the Preacher, the Sage and the Guru. Are these all the same thing? we ask. Then there is The Artist, which includes the Musician, the Author, the Dramatist, the Actor, the Artisan, the Craftsperson, the Sculptor, the Weaver. However the Poet is an another archetype by itself. Why? Some things overlap and some don't.Then one feels that there are many omissions and so little by little the impetus to choose is diminished.
