In the same vein as the previous question I asked, I am trying to get my head around some of the terms and how they relate to specific examples. Excuse the brain dump following - I am just trying to work through character examples and show how I am approaching the theory - I don't know if I am approaching the theory correctly.
So - here goes...
In the book Chris and Melanie speak of an Archetypal Protagonist as: "A Protagonist is motivated by Pursuit, employs a Methodology of Proaction, Evaluates its progress by the Effect it has, and strives toward achieving Actuality as its Purpose. "
I would assume the Archetypal Reason character therefore, is motivated by Control, employs a Methodology of Inaction, Evaluates it progress by the "Trust" it has, and strives towards achieving "Aware" as its purpose.
So - dropping in some of the definitions into the template sentence, to see if I can make it work more fluidly.
The Archetypal Reason character therefore, is motivated by methodically directing its actions and deliberations to the specific purpose at hand. This leads to a great degree of focus. They employ a Methodology of taking no action as a means of response. Sometimes leaving themselves in harm's way. They Evaluate their progress by an acceptance of knowledge as proven without first testing its validity, taking things at face value. Ultimately they strive towards (others/themselves?) being conscious of things outside oneself as its purpose.
Does this sound about right? I am struggling with replacing the "terms" with the definitions, and not sure that I have used the definitions correctly giving the final blurb the true meaning as intended by the theory.
Also, all of the terms are Action related. I was wondering how you would construct a blurb about the Decision character elements.
Archetypal Reason being: Logic, Probability, Theory, Ability
What I currently have:
When deciding the best course of action, the Archetypal Reason character therefore, is motivated by Logic, employs a Methodology of Probability, Evaluates it progress by the "Theory" it has, and strives towards achieving "Ability" as its purpose.
So swapping the terms out with definitions:
When deciding the best course of action, the Archetypal Reason character therefore, is motivated by a rational sense of how things are related. They will choose the most efficient course based on reason. They puts their beliefs and efforts behind what is most likely, as a way of doing things. They Evaluate their effectives by an unbroken chain of relationships leading from a premise to a conclusion. Ultimately striving towards achieving an innate capacity to do or to be, as its Purpose.
hmm - not sure how to weave Evaluate and Purpose definitions in to make it make sense as blurb.
