Awakening the Hero Within: Hero Archetype Test
You are the Warrior!

Task: Fight only for what really matters
Gift: Courage, discipline
Addictions: Achievement, success
The Warrior within each of us calls us to have courage, strength, and integrity; the capacity to make goals and to stick to them; and the ability to fight, when necessary, for ourselves or others. Anytime we stand up to an unfair authority or risk our livelihood for a principle, our Warrior side is active. A Warrior fights against injustice.
A Warrior that fights to preserve injustice has fallen to the Shadow side of the Warrior archetype. If the warrior behaviour is primitive, unpleasant, or unproductive or we are always crusading for something or always trying to enlist others then we have been possessed by our inner Shadow Warrior.
In the most serious and negative manifestations, the desire to be above others is not checked by any humane feeling or higher values. This Shadow Warrior is competitive, but its striving is not related to any ideals or larger social purpose.
The budding warrior has two major defenses: secrecy and strategic retreat. Good Warriors know that we should never enter a battle until we are prepared for it. When a Warrior is clearly overwhelmed by superiour force, the Warrior retreats and takes time to rebuild strength. Perhaps they watch and learn new skills. Clever Warriors try to control the battle zone and do not fight until they are prepared enough to have a good chance of winning. The Best Warrior has the wisdom and the courage to know when and where to fight.
The real problem with the Warrior archetype in today’s day and time is that many so-called Warriors are not true Warriors at all. They are Orphans, calming their own sense of powerlessness by trying to best or control others.
Warriors that are not highly developed may find themselves fighting about everything.
Warriors demand unremitting toughness in Orphans. Orphans often follow warriors and are willing to sacrifice their autonomy because they have no conscious ability to defend themselves.
If a highly developed Caregiver is associated with a Warrior, the Warrior will fight willingly for the good of others.
