The 12 archetypes were developed by Carl Jung and describe human motivations, including strengths, weaknesses, goals, and fears of each type.
We tend to inherit these personality archetypes just like we inherit the genetic patterns of behavior. In his book, The archetypes and the collective unconscious, Carl Jung mentioned that Archetypes represent fundamental human motifs of our experience as we evolved; consequentially, they evoke deep emotions.
