Your definition of archetype:
doesent really fit well with Jungian view:Archetypes are primal symbols of people. These same archetypes are building blocks in determining personalities. Many individual archetypes are found in people at the same time / over a lifetime. These archetypes separately show fragments of people's unconscious minds. These archetypes combined display a large part or portion of the unconscious mind. When organized into groups of two they spell out psychological conditions. What seems random at first becomes very familiar when placed in a different context.
Archetypes doesent show fragments of the persons unconscious mind, they are much wider things, not only about person, but about all people. They show fragments of different stages of evolution of the human psyche, which manifest in people in varying stages of life. Archetypes are not about normal personality, but show in personalities of psychologically disturbed people and temporarily affect the behavior(not personality) of people in different stages of life. For example if a woman has a child, the archetype of mother will(hopefully) come into surface and affect the behavior of the woman, but its something temporary(until the child becomes adult, starts his own family etc). But if this archetype still manifests itself when it should normally wear off, its a sign of unhealthy person(mother tries to nurture an adult child and not let go of this behavior, even the "child" is already in his 40's with his own family, kids etc and doesent really need to be treated like a child anymore).Originally Posted by http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1465-5922.1955.00033.x/abstract
