The ten Archetypes

Once you understand them, you’ll see them everywhere.

Ten points of view: the Archetypes

We each blend the three perspectives of time to create our thoughts, that’s how we become different from one another in our behaviour and communication. Each of our individual ways of seeing the world grows out of a combination of the 3 primary priorities of thoughts: PastPresent, and Future. These motivate all thoughts and behaviors. Whether you lead with one perspective, blend two, or equally blend all three, all possible points of view are a blend of the 3 dimensions of time.
