One of the most interesting theories in psychology is the analytical theory of Carl Jung. This theory divides the psyche of a person to various subconscious archetypes. His theories have been used for a long time, surviving to today in both dynamic psychoanalysis as well as books and movies. We all have several archetype, but we usually have a primary one.

You Are the Hero
One of your main attributes is how loyal you are to your own 'group' - your friends, family, and the people you care about. Another salient trait is that you always seem to know what's the right thing to do and have no qualms about going ahead and doing it. Sometimes you may feel like "you don't have what it takes" to get it done, but time after time, when you pit your will and need to help against the world, you usually make sure you give the help that's needed.
You Are the Wise One
Out of all the people around you, there's NO ONE better to go to for some advice. In your circle, you are the wizard, the wise person, the one with that rare mix of both intelligence and experience that culminate in wisdom. You are very good at showing people the bigger picture of their lives and what path they are currently on. In other words, you are the Gandalf of your group! That said, the wise do not always listen to their own advice as much as they should.
You Are the Clown
Some people make the world happen, and some people make the world WORTH happening. Your archetype makes the world a much more fun place to live. You are the one who brings life, smiles, and humor to your group. You are the element of good chaos that turns boring, awkward conversations to well-oiled and fun exchanges of friendly banter and lively conversation. Don't be mistaken, though. Clowns are NOT fools. Most clowns are smart enough to use their considerable charm and social influence to their (or their loved ones') benefit.
You Are the Shadow
You are a mysterious person who doesn't tend to expose his inner thoughts to others. You have trust issues with new people as well as old friends, and that's why you've learned, and long-ago, CHOSE, to put yourself and your priorities first. Not because you are selfish or hate other people, but because you don't believe others care about you that much. Few are born disliking the company of other people. It is a thing learned through pain, and you make no excuses for it.
