I’m Still Talking

I’m Still Talking

Archetype title

Remember my quest for self-discovery?

Remember all that talking?

And random conversations in the dish department at Wal-Mart and whether Christmas decorations could become Valentine’s Day decorations and how I wanted to find out more about myself?

I did it!

I took the quiz on ArchetypeMe and learned a whole lot more about what makes me…well…me.

Are you curious?

Want to see what I discovered?

Archetype 1

Here are my results: The quiz told me I was a storyteller (seriously….are you even surprised)? Check.

A creator. Check. 

An artist?

Kind of check.


And here are my archetypes. 

I’m Creative and Intellectual and my favorite archetype of all: Queen/Executive.

I’m framing that one to tell future generations.

PicMonkey Collage archetype

And the best part? They put together an entire page just for me….based on my archetypes.

Full of articles I’m interested in.

Like the word of the year for 2013.

Or must-see museum exhibitions.

Or the importance of trying new things.

Yikes!  (Did they read my post on cooking?)

Or the one about 5 great ideas written on a cocktail napkins.


Did you know that legend has it that Southwest Airlines started from an idea on a cocktail napkin?

And that they still print their routes on napkins today?

I didn’t.

Thanks, ArchetypeMe!


Archetype vacation


There are links to destinations I might like. Like Copenhagen, Denmark because of its incredible design and cuisine. And the fun Andersen Hotel with its unique contemporary decor.

I’m not sure if they got this one right.

I like New England and Cape Cod and the beach and lobster.

But I could be persuaded to add Denmark to my bucket list.

  1. Have you done the Myer-Briggs yet? I find that to be wildly accurate. It basically says that I will never shut up.

  2. Creative + Intellectual + Caregiver. What? We all know I am a curmudgeon!

  3. They have me as Caregiver + Athlete + Intellectual. What? I believe my family would beg to differ!!

  4. Caregiver. Intellectual. Spiritual. But my favorite part said I was 20% “other”, which DOES sum me up. I’m a hot mess of “other” for sure! ~Kim

  5. Creative, spiritual, caregiving…hmmmmm that sounds right. Thanks!

  6. Intellectual, spiritual, caregiving.

  7. We’re archetypal doppelgängers. I’m Creative Intellectual Queen/Executive, too.

  8. Well, I’m evidentally an Intellectual+Caregiver+Athlete…..these things are so funny! 😉

  9. Creative, intellectual plus caregiver…..spot on.

  10. Caregiver and intellectual.

    mami2jcn at gmail dot com

  11. 37% Creative. 22%Caregiver. 21% Visionary. 20% Other

    That seems to be pretty accurate. And I’m okay with the “20% Other”

    I’ve been doing a bit of ‘soul searching’ recently, so this is very helpful. I’m trying to REALLY find out what makes my tick.

    Finding my passion and figuring out what I’m good at is a grater challenge than I imagined. Slowly and surely it’s coming together.

    Thanks for sharing the ArchetypeMe information. I truly, truly believe that *everything* happens for a reason and this is just one more example. God is showing up in some mysterious places lately. The radio. At work. In the newspaper. And on your blog. How cool is that?

    Life is good.

  12. It says I am a Creative, Caregiver, Fashionista! I guess that’s true. I am pretty creative, I was the caregiver for my Mom til she passed away and I LOVE clothes! XO, Pinky

  13. Caregiver, Intellectual, Spiritual. Thanks Kari, interesting quiz.

  14. I’m Caregiver, Intellectual, Spiritual. And I even took it twice because I just knew I was Creative. I changed my answers, but the Archetypes didn’t change, just the percentages. I guess my 20% Other must be 19% Creative.

  15. caregiver, intellectual, spiritual. and it’s true. here’s an example: “Dear God, why doesn’t Kari put her Country Living Magazine’s Best Design Blog winner badge on her side bar to help with her marketing?” 🙂

  16. I got 27% advocate, 36% caregiver, 17% spiritual and 20% other.

  17. caregiver, creative, intellectual. Interesting exercise!

  18. Intellectual. Caregiver. Creative. Works for me. I love your Queen/Executive.♥ Made me laugh.

  19. Creative + Caregiver + Intellectual.

    I wanted to be a Queen Exec. Wonder where I went wrong?


  20. Creative, Caregiver, Intellectual. Will wonders never cease!

    I hope the other is creative…but it could be “thrift store shopper.” 🙂

  33. Athlete+Caregiver+Intellectual (and 20% Other). . . . sounds about right. 🙂

  34. Mary-Anne Bunda :

    Hi! I’m Creative, Intellectual, Caregiver, and 20% other which means that I’m complex and likely to be different on different days. But there’s no denying that I’m Creative because I can’t live without my blogs to keep me inspired. Thank you Karianne!

  35. Creative + Fashionista + Intellectual. Hmmm… bet you thought those would cancel each other out, lol! 😉

  36. Creative, Intellectual, Spiritual. What do you check to make you a queen? Love that!

  37. Caregiver – Creative – Intellectual. Quizzes and self discovery like this are right up my alley, and now I must get dressed. It’s 1:04 pm! Yikes!

  38. Creative, Caregiver and Intellectual. I think at least one of them should have been Queen! 🙂

  39. Creative, Intellectual, Caregiver. Sounds about right. Except they may have given me credit for just a bit more intellectual than actually true. Thanks KariAnne! That was fun!

  54. Caregiver-intellectual-creative. Pretty much sums me up.

  55. Creative + Intellectual + Visionary I think it’s pretty accurate!
