Wizard or Warrior review

 Title: Wizard or Warrior
By: LD Doornbosch
Publication Date: February 11, 2016
Genre: Non Fiction - Self Help
In relationships as with other things, you get what you ask for. That becomes a problem when you don't know what you want! Wizard or Warrior summarizes 22 character archetypes, based on the Major Arcana of the Tarot, which make up the human race. It explains character traits, good and bad, and what makes each type "tick". Read this book and you'll be able to identify in short order whether someone is prone to violence or a die-hard pacifist, and even gain insights into how they'll behave in bed. Finding romance doesn't have to be hard. Sometimes it's as easy as asking for a Wizard or Warrior.

The original intent for the creation of this book was to look deeper into character traits and suggest possible relationships between them and the humans exhibiting them. Looking deeper, there are other potential uses for the information contained in this concise volume.
The book begins by explaining what an archetype is and why it benefits one to learn more about them. It goes on to remind us that humans are complicated so no one will fit neatly within any description. 
Comparing each archetype to a Tarot counterpart was what initially caught my attention. 
I appreciate that the author balances her descriptions with how the traits can be perceived and expressed in both positive and negative ways.
I also liked how the author gave us well known examples of many of the archetypes. 

Even if you don't completely believe in the wisdom of the Tarot, the information presented here is fascinating.

L D Doornbosch grew up in the Midwest, in a suburb of Waterloo, Iowa. She moved to Arizona as a teen, where she still resides today. She spent twenty years in broadcast news, on and off the air, before a career move to technology. Throughout her life, she created technical and practical manuals for work related topics. With her first book, Finding Keepers, she shifted her focus to creating a manual on personal relationships, one with step-by-step instructions on the process of finding the right person. Wizard or Warrior extends that into the creation of a personality reference to help readers determine what kind of personality they are, as well as what type of personality would be their ideal match.
