People often explore who they are through the dynamic forces of relationships. Through each relationship, people find themselves and commit to an unconscious process that unfolds and start to adapt to patterns that eventually become habitual. The purpose of the current study is to explore if Holograms or role images, unresolved issues and patterns of behaviours adopted through the various processes always influence communication in current relationships. The study also hypothesized that there will be a relationship between Archetypes and Perception of Self; between Perception of Self and Perception of Mother and Father. The sample consisted of 30 participants in the age range of 20 to 45 years. The Pearson-Marr Archetype Indicator was used to assess Archetypes; California Adult Q-sort was used to assess Perception of Self, Mother and Father and the Thematic Apperception Test was administered to assess if participants would project the parental role images, unfinished business and patterns of behaviour. A bivariate correlational analysis carried out between Archetypes and Perception of Self-showed no significant correlation while a bivariate correlation between Perception of Self and Perception of Mother and Father respectively showed a positive moderate correlation. The interpretation of 15 participants’ TAT stories indicated projection of unresolved issues, parental role images and patterns of behaviour or the Holograms.
