What is an archetype?

Archetypes are easy ways to describe each of the 16 personality types.

When you take the personality assessment or predict someone's personality using the Crystal Chrome Extension, you'll notice that they have a label that we call an "Archetype." You'll see this next to their name in the dashboard and the Chrome Extension:


There are 16 different personality types in Crystal, each represented by an archetype. These correspond to a type in DISC, which is the personality framework that Crystal uses. For a description of each archetype, visit this page and select from the "Type" dropdown menu.
