  2. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Oct11Post.mp4 Where do archetypes come from? This is one of those chicken vs. egg questions. The description and name of the most common archetypes is credited to Jung, a contemporary of Freud. But he didn't create them, he discovered them in his patient's brains. And these common archetypes are not only in our brains, but in all our of stories. The hero, the outlaw, the king, the wizard, the princess, the joker, etc. There are 12 major archetypes, and a whole bunch of minor ones. If you watch enough movies, you'll start seeing similar characters. So, the question is, did we invent these archetypes, or did they slowly evolve as our brains did? One theory says they are evolved via "natural selection." For tens of thousands of years, we told each other stories around the campfire every night. Most of these were pretty lame, and NOT memorable. So we didn't remember those. Some were epic. Inspiring, motivating. Those we remembered. In physical, biological natural selection, every time DNA copies itself, there is potential for mistakes. Most mistakes don't help much. But some do. Those changes, due to the mistakenly copied DNA are KEPT, and become part of the NEW genome, for whatever animal happens to have it. Stories work the same way. Each slight change in story, either by a mistake or "creative license" by the caveman telling the story, could be good, or bad, or the same. Any "good" changes will be kept. Any "bad" changes won't. Do this over enough generations, you get the Hero's Journey. Filled with archetypes. For example, a common archetype that is alive and well today is the "hero-outlaw" type. Han Solo, Rhett Butler, The "Man With No Name," played by both Clint Eastwood (westerns) and Toshiro Mifune (samurai). The guy who's normally a bad guy, but switches to the good guy because the "cause" is strong enough. (This is why it's critical that Han actually shot first). Another common archetype is the undefeatable "loner." He's mostly a good guy, but when he needs to be, he can switch into killer mode. James Bond is a good example. In fact, James Bond is such a "pure" archetype that the James Bond franchise, and ALL the spy movies that emulate him has been around for GENERATIONS. The ultra resourceful, unshakable, potential killer with a strong set of inner values. If this guys on your team, you can't lose. If he's coming after you, you'd better hide. One "modern" archetype who is relatively new is the romantic male character. Sure, there were plenty of romantic types in the past, but that romantic type is always a SUBSET of a much stronger character. Today, the romantic types have NOTHING else. Spineless, goofy, hopeless romantic types that do nothing but chase their ladies. Some say this is the "new" way of acting like a man. But human nature does not change.

  4. https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Sept27Post.mp4 Whenever there's an ensemble movie, particularly an action movie, they'll be some pretty similar archetypes. All the dudes form the original Star Wars matched up with The Seven Samurai (and the Magnificent seven). Once a buddy of mine and I were talking about random stuff and we "discovered" that in every sitcom has a kind of "silly" character. This goes back to Jung, who allegedly found these archetypes in each one of our psyches. Which means we are each one of those Seven Samurai from time to time. Otherwise, we couldn't identify with them. A famous study is where they put ten people in a room and give each of them a task. And they automatically and quickly organize into a hierarchy. This makes perfect sense, because we are hierarchical primates. But they do this several times. They put all the top guys (from each previous group) and put them in a group. And again, they organize into a hierarchy. What do these two ideas mean? The archetype and the hierarchy idea? Depending on who you're hanging out with, you'll be in different places on the hierarchy. This itself is a movie trope. Big fish in a small pond? Or small fish in a big pond? You may be a star in High School but a nobody in college. You may be the science geek among your friends, but when you get a job at an engineering company, you'll be the guy always asking questions. Some people don't like to grow. They like to stay safe. In fact, most people, unless they are being consistently prodded by their environment, will stay right where they are. Same friends, same discussions, same hobbies and pastimes. This CAN be OK. But what happens when you're environment changes? 99% of species who have ever existed went extinct. The dinosaurs probably thought they had it pretty good Then a meteor came out of nowhere and killed everybody. Complacency feels good, but it makes it VERY hard to change when the environment does. Of course, the environment can be anything. Social situations, relationships, economic situations, or anything else. Luckily, you don't need to be ready for a zombie apocalypse. Or spending all day stashing guns and doing pull ups like Sarah Connor from the Terminator movies. Those are cool for movie characters, but what about real life? In real life your best skills are how you think. How you speak. How well you remember, and how creative you are. You can practice these skills every day, and nobody will know but you. Best case is you get a bigger and better brain. Worst case is if anything does go sideways, you'll be the guy people look to for help. Learn More: https://mindpersuasion.com/mental-strength/
