Your archetype is the Sage

Wise, thoughtful & truth-seeking

The Sage is always seeking the truth. They value wisdom, knowledge and insight highly. They encourage others to think and are often perceived as experts or mentors. They seek not only to understand the world, but also to share that understanding with others.

To leverage the power of your Sage brand archetype, use a high-level vocabulary and never ever patronise your audience. Instead, trust them to grasp complex concepts. Be an educator and a mentor.
