    Default American Introversion and Extroversion - Indoors and Outdoors

    Americans go home they change from one hemisphere to the other. They cease to be extroverts. They become introvert and ordinary, but the moment they step outside their homes they go out to fight, fight, fight. They drop the Puritan work ethic the moment they are indoors. They become hospitable and social.

    So we go home to be private; Americans go home to be social.

    Blanket statements about nationalities you don't have real experience with seems to just reflect an obsessive worship of stereotype.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Default Personality Type and Archetype

    On the other hand, just as we are interested in personality type, so we might be interested in archetype.

    And indeed as the most powerful country in the world, it behoves us to take a close interest in the American archetype.

    We began our study of the American archetype by necessity in WW II. The Americans were perceived as over sexed, over paid, and over here, and as we needed to work closely with the Americans to defeat our common enemy, we needed to understand the Americans, and in particular, to understand the American archetype.

    And the comparative study of the American archetype and the Australian archetype showed these different archetypes derived from different child rearing practices.

    Today we are bound even closer to America with a military treaty, an economic treaty, and a land treaty, so the need to understand the comparative difference between the Australian and the American archetypes is even more important.

    And as we live out our archetypes through our personality types, the study of our archetypes is germaine on a site devoted to personality types.

    It's true, we have different manners and mores, which we all take for granted.

    One way to step outside the taken for granted is to study the archetypes that lead to different manners and mores and different personalities.

    And it is hard not to notice that our site is international, comprising a number of different nationalities. So to understand personality types it is necessary to understand their origin in national archetypes.

    Of course if we are resolutely parochial, or we unconsciously wish to impose our archetype on others, the New Age cry will go up, calling archetypes, stereotypes.

    Well, I don't know about you guys, but I always take my guns and swords with me when I leave the house. It's not uncommon to have to send people to Valhalla on my way to the grocery store.
