The Cosmopolitan’s Magnetic Power
You are the epitome of modern-day refinement. Your style is immaculate, striking, and high-quality. The confidence that you exude is undeniable, and you maintain courageous tenacity that makes you highly adaptable to the most intimidating situations. You’re always up-to-date on the latest trends and combine them with your classic, understated pieces, giving you a modern yet sophisticated style. People are captivated by your vivacity, which highlights your ability to be a trendsetter.
You are naturally ambitious and motivate those around you to do better. The only person you compete with is yourself, so you maintain a high standard for yourself and everyone around. When you’re fully harnessing the potential of this archetype, you attract the lifestyle of the quintessential socialite.
The Cosmopolitan archetype for women possesses the power to influence and inspire. Frequently, they make a living from simply having fantastic taste. These women often attract supportive and successful partners.
The Shadow Side of the Cosmopolitan
Your influence is a blessing, but there is a shadow to this archetype.
Your influence works for you because you’re always two steps ahead of the curve. Consider Lauren Bacall when she first stepped on the Hollywood scene, which was laced in glitz and glamour, bringing coolness with her tailored pantsuit, deep voice, and unique face––juxtaposed the jewels and dresses that were common at the time. She set the standard for class while being intelligent, interesting, worldly, and ahead of her time.
The shadow side for this archetype reveals that you can focus too much on your image and fail to remember quality. Suppose you haven’t mastered the art of leveraging your Cosmopolitan energy. In that case, it can be difficult for you to find the balance of your ego, and you may be over-confident in your endeavors without putting in the necessary work.
