What kind of fear you manifest may define your particular personality. According to Ruth Soukup, there are 7 archetypes of fear and how they're connected to your own personality. First is the procrastinator or the perfectionist. The person finds it hard to do things for the fear of making a mistake. Second is the rule follower. He has fear of authority. He is afraid of making his own judgement to avoid taking risk. Third is the people pleaser. He is afraid to be judged, criticized or how the people may react about his action. Fourth is the outcast. He has the fear of rejection or a fear of trusting other people. He doesn't care what others think. Fifth is the self-doubter. He has the feeling of insecurity and uncertainty. He is hypercritical and judgemental of others. He is jealous. Sixth is the excuse maker. He is a rationalizer, defending himself to be blamed. He is afraid to take responsibility. And seventh is the pessimist. He manifests the fear of struggling through hard things or the fear of pain. He is giving up or not to trying at all. Where do you belong?

I see some that I can't agree with completely. I've been a procrastinator most of my life. I don't consider myself a perfectionist, except maybe with my writing. I'm rarely satisfied with it. I can see that definition for the perfectionist, not the procrastinator. I'm a rule follower, but I certainly don't fear authority. I respect it. I am a people pleaser. This one I agree with. I don't know about the outcast. I do have a fear of rejection, however, I do care what people think. I'm probably a self-doubter too, but I don't judge others, only myself. I'm neither of the last two.
