The 12 Common Archetypes. 

Writers can use these 12 Archetypes to create characters 

Mungkin ini berguna untuk mencipta watak dalam novel kot seperti penulis teks ni mention kat atas tu. Saya tertarik dengan artikel ni sebab huraian2 yang terperinci tentang satu2 watak tu. Siap dengan motto, core desire, strategy etc. 
Mesti setiap daripada kita tergolong dalam salah satu watak2 seperti di bawah ni kan.

Dua hari lepas ada mention di berita2 yang dari kajian di beberapa tempat didapati 12% daripada murid2 sekolah pada tahun 2014 ini bercita2 menjadi pelakon. Aduhaiii...begitu kuat pengaruh pelakon2 dan selebriti ke atas anak2 kita nampaknya.

ok, parents...apa kata kita bagitau je kat anak2 kita ni yang nak jadi pelakon tu tak perlu lah dijadikan cita2. Sebabnya? Sebab memang kita ni dah memang pelakon dah pun kannn...
Pelakon di pentas dunia...hihi..

So, jom kita tengok kita ni masuk di bawah kategori mana agak2nya. Tepat ke tak tepat rasanya huraian yang diberikan tu...jom kita nilai sendiri berdasarkan karektor diri kita..
Tapi secara logiknya mesti karektor kita adalah campuran daripada karektor2 di bawah. Ataupun berubah-ubah mengikut keadaan mungkin.
