Your ego has 12 personas that governs its thoughts, feelings and actions.
Each of these personas identifies with your body, gender, race, nationality, talents,
thoughts and emotions and takes action accordingly.
Your ego is firmly established in you during your formative years, and you are considered socialised by the time you reach the age of 21, when you are declared an adult. In ancient times a noble lad would be knighted at the age of 21. During the first seven years the focus of the ego is on the establishment of its physical identity, the next seven years its sexual identity is established and during the age of 14 to 21 years the social identity of your ego is established.
Central to the insights of Sigmund Freud was the idea that your personality consists of autonomous agents that act on your behalf. That you are not one, but many. These agents can be called the personas of the ego.
We like to think that we are in control, but then something in us does the opposite. You decide to stop smoking, but then something stressful happens and you are smoking again or you are having a bad hangover and decide to never drink again, but then the weekend comes around, and you have a drink in your hand. Have you experienced this?
Carl Jung, who worked closely with Freud, after studying many ancient texts, came up with twelve archetypes for personality who derive from the collective unconscious. He proposed that these archetypes direct conscious behaviour. Unfortunately his classification of archetypes eluded subsequent systematic study and were regarded as unfathomable. The truth is that in the west, these archetypes can be trailed back to the astrology of the Sumerian period, 3rd millennium BC, in Egypt and in the east the archetypes were taught as far back as the age of Gemini, 5th millennium BC.
Ego refers to itself as “I”. It is the person at the center of your world that experiences itself and life from a subjective perspective. The root of the ego is “mine”, it is your ego that is identified with your body, gender, race, nationality, talents, thoughts and emotions. Your family is your ego’s family. When you say “I”, you are referring to your subjective identity, with a given name. These aspects of ourselves are gained from conditioning to what society requires.
School of Samaya has adapted this knowledge so that it can be applied directly to the personas of the ego. All the thoughts in your mind, and the feelings in your heart belong to these personas of the ego. You can call them spiritual agents. And each one has a unique role which corresponds with a particular archetype. There are 12 in all. Some are more dominant in you than others. You can take the assessment test to discover your predominant archetypes and their compositions to understand why you think the way you do and feel the way you do.
There are 6 pairs of archetypes. Each archetype has a partner, that stands in opposition to it. Jester opposes Planner. Ruler opposes lover and so on. When one loses, its partner gains. It is Ruler that falls in love and order is only re-established when the love affair ends. The result of your test will illustrate the distribution of your archetypes from both a conscious and unconscious perspective.
Your archetype assessment profile will detail the balance of your archetypes when you were born, and how they have grown to become who you are today. Each archetype has an arc of growth that accompanied your life experiences. Your 13-page True Personality Assessment Profile will reveal the maturity and growth of your archetypes and show you the polarity and composition of each persona.
TPA® PROFILE FOR COUPLES
As a partner in a relationship, the first step in contributing to the relationship, is to understand the personality of your ego within. And the next step is to see how this influences your relationship with the other. When an archetype occupies your seat of will, it commands your physical, mental and emotional being. A joint analysis with your partner will unpack your relationship, and allow you to understand the natural tensions that exists between your archetypes. Understanding fosters acceptance and makes place for a new level of integration at a physical, mental and emotional level.

As a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder and suffering from severe asthma, and deafness, TLB Kruger battled to fit in socially with other kids when he was young. Needless to say he hardly had any friends and this led him towards an introverted behaviour of striving to be the best at everything so that maybe people would accept him and want to be his friend. But this did not work, instead creating more inner tension resulting in a deep desire to understand social interaction during early adulthood. When western psychology did not provide him with the answers he was searching for, the east directed him towards a higher understanding of what the ego is.
TLB Kruger has dedicated his life to the pursuit of understanding himself and the existential experiences of life. After over 21 years of searching for the truth TLB Kruger found himself as the scribe of The Perennial Truth which introduces the understanding of the ego and it’s archetypes. A further decade later TLB Kruger now releases his True Personality Assessment Profile in the hope to help people understand themselves, others and the world they find themselves in.
“Understanding fosters Acceptance. My hope is to offer humanity understanding of who they are. From my own childhood struggles and social challenges throughout my adulthood, I finally discovered what my ego is and the roles the archetypes play in my life. This self realisation has brought a sense of freedom and joy that one cannot explain unless it is understood and observed for yourself.” TLB Kruger
