Characteristics of the
Warrior Listening Archetype
When you listen through the archetype or the Warrior, you’re on the lookout for attacks and danger, respond with self-protective anger or indignation toward the other, and then either engage in self-defense or counterattack.
Your listening archetype can be a strength that helps you fight for justice and seek accountability for harm when someone has hurt you or someone else in some way.
While you may be quick to see the part that someone else is playing in a conflict, and may easily identify others’ responsibility or culpability in a conflict, focusing heavily on the other person often results in you paying a heavy price in reduced trust and connection in your relationship with that person.
The path of the Warrior often involves leaning deeply into the life-affirming aspects of healthy anger, without falling into the trap of becoming harmful and destructive themselves.
