Hmmm . . . I find the archetype of the warrior, despite some firm truths about that persona, takes on a very individual flavor depending on who said warrior is. As a woman and an INFJ, I find my warrior self as someone capable of rising above my quirks, shortcomings and overwhelmed heart. As if this facet of myself could carry the uncertain, overwhelmed, self-defeated aspects of my personality over those sharp, jagged experiences. Rather than it being the face of my empathy, and I truly am saturated in empathy, it serves more as an armored vehicle in which my empathy remains safe and intact (just how I like it!) when I have to 'pull up my sleeves' for some not so easy work. Interesting wonderings . . .What is the whole fearless warrior thing? It used to get condemned as a male fantasy at a time, back when feminists where more readily setting out a stand on being positively in favour of difference and talking about the greater empathy of women, an ethic of care etc. While its one sided perhaps, there's some basis for it in recent psychological research too. The male warrior versus female carer archetypes based on empathy that is. Although the fearless warrior thing is something that I've read feminists write about, it appeals to women and men, maybe its about courage, skill, strength, fitness or something, I remember reading about archetypes a long time ago and the idea of warrior-scholars or warrior-poets as archetypes and wondered why the "warrior" part was important and if it was equally weighted with the second part or not.
