Tarot Court Cards and Adobe’s Creative Types Quiz

Published by Alison Cross on

Adobe has come up with a fun quiz – with excellent graphics – to help you not only identify which creative type you might be, but also which other type you would collaborate well. I thought that it might be fun to try to map them to the court cards!

Take the Quiz! Which one are you?!

There are 8 types:

  • Artist
  • Thinker
  • Adventurer
  • Maker
  • Producer
  • Dreamer
  • Innovator
  • Visionary

Although we have 16 court cards, we do have four suits (Wands, Swords, Pentacles and Cups) and four ranks (Page, Knight, Queen and King)

If you were to pick four of these types to represent the four suits, could you allocate the remaining four across the four ranks?

For example:

If you associate Swords with ‘Thinking’, could you associate Cups with ‘Dreaming’, Pentacles with ‘Making’ and Wands with ‘Adventuring’?

This might lead you to associate Pages with Innovators, Knights with Visionaries, Queens with ‘Artists’ and Kings with ‘Producing’.

This gives you another way of looking at the creative styles across the characters of the Court Cards – Could the Queen of Cups represents people who are artistic in the field of dreams; the King of Wands would be a Maker in the field of Adventure; the Knight of Swords would be a Visionary in the field of Thought …. The Page of Pentacles would be an Innovator in the field of Production. Yes? No?

Worried that I’ve got completely untethered from reality?! Well, it’s just another suggestion to think differently about the Court Cards!

Come along to my session at this year’s TABI Tarot Conference and find out other ways to work with the Court Cards using their Secret Squirrel Names. And yes, my court card e-book will be available to pre-order on Amazon very soon!
