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.

    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

    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.

    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

  4. Image for Anita Anita

    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.

  5. Image for gina gina

    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?" :)

    So interesting, Karianne! I'm caregiver, intellectual, spiritual. A former flight attendant and teacher; I guess this fits! Thanks for sharing! I can really see your profile too! You are such a wonderful storyteller, so creative and amazing decorator!

    Caregiver+Spiritual+Intellectual with 20% Other. Hopefully, there's some percentage within the 20% that is Creative. I do rearrange pillows- lol.

  8. Image for Susan Susan

    Intellectual +Caregiver +Spiritual. I love taking these tests. They always turn out the same, from Winnie the Pooh to Colors, but it's still fun to do it. Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. Image for Mary-Anne Bunda 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!

  10. Image for Kathleen Kathleen

    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!

  11. Image for Nanette Nanette

    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!

  12. Image for betsy c betsy c

    Fashionista topped Intellectual by 1%, followed closely by Queen and then 20% other. I always knew there was a big part of me that nobody knew what to do with haha. And intellectual? Fun quiz.

  14. Image for Peggy Peggy

    Caregiver + Creative + Spiritual + 20% other... in that exact order. I had to laugh because of the 20% other! I get the first... now I need to go through and actually read all the recommendations to see what they have to say. :) Have a great day!

  15. Image for Dara Dara

    It said I am: creative, intellectual and physical...ha! I swapped Physical for we're talking! FUN!
