The Primum (Latin term meaning "first” or “beginning”) is the first path of the Ennealogy archetypes and was given its name to highlight its primacy. Sharing many characteristics with Sun, The Primum is powerful, generous, stubborn and disciplined. The Primum has very high internal standards and a keen sense of right and wrong. They are perfectionists who not only like to adhere to all rules themselves, but expect others to do the same. They have adopted the idea that everyone and everything around them can be improved (including themselves), and believe they are the best agents for the aforementioned improvement. The Primum doesn’t set out to be a leader, but eventually ends up in leadership roles because of their proclivities and motivations. Though they hate disorder, phoniness and laziness, The Primum loves freedom, loyalty, and individuality.
