The teacher is the archetype that’s here to play the student/teacher role and educate the masses. Teachers thrive on consuming, organizing, and distilling information so their pupils can receive it and benefit from it.
Teachers are the most grounded, practical, and logical of the bunch–always researching, reading, learning, and gathering. They are a hub of knowledge, and thrive when they have a “room” (in person, or your favorite digital Zoom room) to share it with.
Teachers thrive when they build frameworks for their work and information they share in a way that works for them. This could be through whatever medium makes sense for them–podcast, events, courses–you name it.
Teachers are amazing at making sure their students have the information, resources, materials, graphs, quoted research, and process to ensure they’re successful in life.
The teacher also represents the student.

Primary + Secondary Archetypes
Your Primary Archetype Is Your Zone of Genius. Your Secondary Is Your Zone of Safety.
Together, They Create the 12 Sub-Types.
Teacher / Coach
The Hidden Gem💎
You’re using your coach as a way to live/flourish as your teacher. You’re able to host retreats, workshops, or group coaching programs to allow your teacher to show up for your “students.” You might not host your own events, but you thrive when getting asked to speak to a crowd or be the guest expert.
Teacher / Creator
You’re likely using a social media platform, in-person event, book, or other creative outlet to share your teachers and what you’ve learned. You enjoy recording podcasts, curating in-person experiences (that are experiential AND informational), recording youtube videos, writing books, articles, or social media posts. People know you for your ability to curate information from other great teachers and deliver it to the world in your own, beautiful way.
Teacher / Entrepreneur
The Eye 👁
You’re using your entrepreneur to flourish as a teacher—so you either love consulting for companies, speaking, creating courses and/or certifications. You have the systems-minded visionary aspect, and use that energy to deliver your teachings. People recognize you as a teacher who understands how to solve problems strategically, so you are (or will be) well-revered by your peers.
The Teacher is a key archetype throughout all history; all stories, movies, books have a teacher or mentor figure in them. They don’t always need to be right there with their students every step of the way, but they do need to be there to teach them exactly what to do.
Teachers can process information quickly, and disseminate complicated subjects into simple language.
You’ll find teachers making witty jokes, referencing movies, and making clever jokes.
Teachers with life experience can take their information, blend it with context and experience, and be a leader.
Teachers are first students; always curious about their topic of mastery, wanting to know as much as they can.
Teachers value education; so you’ll notice them with various certifications, higher-level education credentials, and more.
Integrated teachers know how to command a room and say, “Everyone, this is what we’re learning today. Take a seat.”
Teachers thrive on structure and organization; so you’ll find them with clear frameworks, structures, and processes for efficiency.
Teachers focus on the “what” and the “how,” so expect them to always provide logical, practical advice for your success.
Each archetype expresses itself through different levels of personal, conscious development and triggers.
When this archetype is expressing itself in healthy ways, it’s working at it’s best and can truly thrive. When it’s expressing itself in unhealthy ways, there’s unresolved wounding, trauma, or core belief systems that are manifesting as unhelpful (or even harmful) sets of behavior, thought patterns, and emotions.
