The Results of Your Healer Archetype Quiz
If You Answered Mostly A’s
You Are a Counselor
Whether you are a counselor in your professional life or not, you have the gift of knowing just the right thing to say and when to say it. People come to you for your logical, sound advice. For you, it just comes naturally. Keep in mind, however, that not everyone wants advice, so, no matter how good it might be, practice waiting for someone to ask before offering it.
If You Answered Mostly B’s
You Are a Coach
If you are a Coach archetype, you thrive in situations where you can motivate and inspire others to set and achieve goals. You find healing for yourself and others by leaving the past behind and continually striving forward. You also find healthy competition to be a balm for your own pain and thus encourage others to light this same fire within themselves.
If You Answered Mostly C’s
You Are a Rescuer
The Rescuer archetype is always ready in case of an emergency. They are like a lifeguard, jumping in only when they’re really needed, but otherwise not getting involved. They don’t panic; they step in and do what needs to be done. They do not generally stick around afterwards, as the follow-up care is not their specialty. The shadow side of the Rescuer is trying to save people who don't want to be saved or aren’t ready for saving, as well as undervaluing pain and suffering they don’t deem an “emergency.” They might move from vulnerable person to vulnerable person, seeking to satisfy their need to save, as they thrive so well in emergencies.

You Are a Servant
The Servant archetype is a challenging one, as helping others brings a sense of joy and fulfillment. But it can also create ties and debts that limit one’s own freedom in the world. The Servant takes pride in offering their services to another and will drop anything to help where needed. In a healthy situation, the Servant also knows when to say no and prioritize their own needs.

You Are a Caretaker/Nurturer
If you are the first one people call when they need help, or if you are the one who steps up to help an aging parent, you have the Caretaker/Nurturer archetype. You are patient, selfless, protective, considerate, and thoughtful. However, you must remember that the first person to take care of is yourself, as you have a tendency toward burnout, which can easily turn into bitterness.
If You Answered Mostly F’s
You Are a Companion
The Companion is the friendly, easy-going sidekick; they are the Robin to Batman, the Ed McMann to Johnny Carson, the Timon and Pumbaa to Simba. They are quick to offer a shoulder to cry on and are unselfish in their time and commitment to their friend, partner, spouse, or boss. They don’t need or want the limelight; they are happy working behind the scenes and letting someone else take all the credit. Thus, their own personal identity and journey can sometimes be forgotten or diminished in the quest to make someone else look better. The Companion doesn’t judge, criticize, or offer much in the way of advice, which can sometimes turn them into an enabler.
