If you were pegged as a character archetype, which one would you be?
I always enjoyed seeing these kinds of charts, trying to root what’s the basic motivation of a character beneath all of the ridiculous scenarios and situations they find themselves in. Do you actively think about your characters’ archetypes when you create them? Are you able to trace back your character’s main motivation to one of the basic archetypes? Which archetype is your favorite, or which do you tend to write the most of?
If I had to pick one from each quarter, if you will, my favorites would be the Jester, the Outlaw, the Explorer, and the Creator. What about you?
