Travel Archetypes

Carl Gustav Jung, the famed Swiss psychoanalyst, is credited for his work on ‘archetypes,’ the basic human behavioral molds, patterns, and tendencies common to us all, which shape and influence who we are and what we do. You can also think of archetypes as composite simplified personality types, e.g., personas, roles, selves, or characteristics that define us.

Human personality is a very complicated matter, indeed, and while archetypes do not necessarily explain us, they are, nevertheless, a fun, interesting, entertaining, and useful—if not a bit oversimplified—way of looking at and describing our own travel selves.

Therefore, I have invented a number of travel archetypes, which should stimulate you to thinking about travel in an imaginative way. We are never simply just one of these archetypes at any one time—we are a complex mix of these as well as many other influences in our lives.

The Travel Archetypes that I have created for myself help define the travels I have done throughout my life. These are mine: you can invent others that more characteristically describe you and your own travel-life.
