(6) Active-Detachment (= Moore's active "shadow" Magician archetypes)

(7) Passive-Dependence (= Moore's passive "shadow" Lover archetypes)

(8) Active-Dependence (= Moore's active "shadow" Lover archetypes)

The correspondences that I have indicated above are taken from the 2007 revised and expanded edition of his book THE KING WITHIN: ACCESSING THE KING [ARCHETYPE] IN THE MALE PSYCHE by Moore and Douglas Gillette (page 200). Even though Moore has published five books about the masculine archetypes of maturity, he has not published any books about the corresponding feminine archetypes of maturity. Nevertheless, he claims that the four feminine archetypes of maturity are basically similar in structure to the four masculine archetypes of maturity.

If you would like to take stock of where you are with respect to these eight maladaptive forms of learning and functioning identified by Millon and borrowed by Moore, you can take the Millon Multiaxial Clinical Inventory III, an inventory that has 175 items. On the printout summarizing your results, the eight numbered measures correspond to the above eight maladaptive forms of learning and functioning I have listed here, but I have not numbered the eight listed above here in the order and with the numbers of the eight numbered items in the printout. You should be able to learn something useful about yourself from your scores on each of the measures. For further information, see Millon's website.
