Choose Your Values by Choosing an Archetype

by bxrtley


What values will I stand for? That can be an intimidating question. Let’s make it easier. First ask, How will I choose my values? Identify these navigational attributes:

  • Map: How I view the world
  • Vehicle: How I navigate the world
  • Limitations: My blindspots
  • Compass: (Values) The awareness of my position

Even this oversimplified process can be daunting. Let’s make it even easier:

  1. Find an archetype list.
  2. Scan values you want to live.
  3. Choose archetypes with those values.
  4. Select one archetype.

A good list will include values. We just answered the first two of our identity questions. Here’s my personal discovery.
