Whether real or fictional, we have certain expectations when it comes to a famous person's brand.
Although we may not know them personally, we have a basic understanding of who they are based solely on how they are portrayed in movies and the media.

I have a mystique advantage and my archetype is the secret weapon. I noticed that Prince was listed which is really interesting because I have always related to him as an artist and admired his performance style. I am also a musician and pursue excellence and refinement while developing my craft, as well as bringing my own innovative flair to my performance style. But it isn't really my style to be too flashy. My stage presence tends to be mystique indeed, but without being too dry which is where I think the innovation secondary advantage comes in handy. And I have gotten feedback that my stage presence is "killer" even though I'm just being me.
I have worked with other more seasoned artists, such as a retired professional Motown drummer, who tried to mold my image into what they thought it should be. And I hung out with them because I really did learn a lot from them, but when it came down to it only I could decide what kind of image I wanted to project as an artist. So I really relate to Prince in regards to his intellect, independence, creativity, and ownership of what he does.
I'm grouped with Mark Zuckerberg, Sophia Loren, and Steven Spielberg. I suppose there's worse company with which to be associated, but I've honestly not seen either Sophia Loren or Steven Spielberg communicate in public, so I'm not sure how to read into this. Zuckerberg I only know from his keynote presentations/addresses to Facebook employees, so perhaps I have some digging to do. I'll admit, I'm 'fascinated', and I'll have to do some research!
I've often been compared to Audrey Hepburn; even so, it was a surprise to me that she and I share the same communication style!
