I am naturally interested in Bully and Coward, since that pairing makes my radar flip on.... (are the bullied automatically, knee-jerk wise, considered to be cowards?) I'm truly just interested to know more - it isn't a judgment so I hope you don't take it that way!

Mother, Queen - the feminine ones intrigue me.

It is so funny how I keep seeing "culturally negative" as bad! Intriguing.

UNKNOWN keeps coming up for me under "U" but since I don't know very much about archetypes, I don't know if it fits.

Could Y be something like "Youth"?

I look forward to reading your A to Z posts!

You are very perceptive, Julie! Coward IS the flip side of Bully, always. The "toughness" of a Bully is entirely fake; he deflates once his gaggle of sycophants aren't looking or when someone stands up to him (or her). :o)

Unknown...hey, I have an idea! I can make a post called Unknown Archetypes: How to Discover Yours. Thanks for the inspiration!

Youth, and the quest for it, would fall under the Puer Eternis, the Eternal Child. Some say this is a permutation of The Fool, in fact. It's definitely a big enough archetype to merit its own post (Peter Pan! Michael Jackson!).

I appreciate you stopping by and posting, and I look forward to your future comments. I have a feeling you'll have some very insightful ones just like today! :o)
