Earth Metal Tie

What is The Five Archetypes?

  • A science-based system that teaches people to thrive in the face of challenge, improving personal well-being, relationships, and the effectiveness of business strategies.
  • A systematic approach to build confidence, empathy, and a growth mindset.
  • It's not a personality test; its primary goal is to guide us to grow ourselves, others and our organizations - especially in the face of chaos and adversity - rather than merely emphasizing our differences.

How to use your Five Archetypes results:
  • Step 1: Notice your highest and lowest archetypes. You may have ties, which is fine!
  • Step 2: Explore the PDFs that correspond to your highest and lowest archetypes. The PDFs demonstrate how your unconscious thoughts and behaviors strengthen or weaken your relationships.
  • Step 3: Join the waitlist for our digital learning program! Get personalized, bite-sized text reminders and activities to rewire stress responses for healthier relationships. The program launches in Spring 2024 - access the waitlist on your 5A assessments results page.


  • The assessment takes about 10 minutes. As you consider how to rate each phrase, be careful not to fall into the trap of “I should.”
  • Instead, pause and reflect on how frequently in the past three months you have felt aligned with each statement. The more accurate your answers, the more spot on your personalized action plan will be.
  • Upon completion, a link to your results will be emailed to you. Follow the link to find information about your archetypes, such as stressors, gifts, and more, which will enable you to apply your results immediately.
