Pearson-Marr Archetype Indicator

The Pearson-Marr Archetype Indicator® (PMAI) is based on Carl G. Jung's theory on psychological archetypes and measures the influence of twelve archetypal patterns in the individual’s life. 
Jung considers archetypes to be the original blueprint of psychological structures presented in symbols and images contained in the collective unconscious and expressed in myths, art, literature and dreams. He considers myths to be a direct expression of the collective unconscious, the source of the collective creative and repressed essence of mankind, and a fundamental expression of human nature. His theory presents a perspective that understanding influential archetypes in one’s life can reveal one’s most important desires, motivations and goals, unrealized potential and the logic and importance of one’s life.
The PMAI tool follows the concept that the life story or myth is the tale people repeatedly tell themselves about who they are, what they desire, what they can and cannot do. With awareness of the influence of archetypal patterns individuals can consciously choose which archetypal attributes to use and develop in a personal and professional context. The tool measures the influence of twelve archetypes considered to be common characters present in life stories:
  • Innocent, Orphan, Caregiver, Warrior - which help you, others, and the species to survive.
  • Seeker, Lover, Destroyer, Creator - which help you and others find yourselves and express your gifts.
  • Ruler, Magician, Sage and Jester - which help you and others live authentically, making a positive contribution to the world whilst also experiencing personal fulfillment. 
The PMAI Report provides feedback contained in archetypal descriptions and graphically ranks the individual’s scores against the twelve archetypes. It provides descriptions of the three archetypes with the highest results likely to currently have the most active influence in the individual’s life and a description of the archetype with the lowest score considered to be the ‘shadow’ archetype likely to be the least expressed.
