The concept of an archetype is found in areas relating to behavior, modern psychological theory, and literary analysis. An archetype can be:
  1. a statement, pattern of behavior, or prototype which other statements, patterns of behavior, and objects copy or emulate;
  2. a Platonic philosophical idea referring to pure forms which embody the fundamental characteristics of a thing;
  3. a collectively-inherited unconscious idea, pattern of thought, image, etc., that is universally present in individual psyches, as in Jungian psychology;
  4. or a constantly recurring symbol or motif in literature, painting, or mythology (this usage of the term draws from both comparative anthropology and Jungian archetypal theory).

Jung named these culturally and generational transmitted and inherited personality building blocks of the unconscious archetypes. Because they emanate from the deepest regions of the collective unconscious and are so ancient, they are also called primordial images.
