These instructions are sent with every set of cards purchased.  

They have been updated a couple of times since original publishing, so I'm putting the latest version here to download.

Nockwood a framework for almost everything.

I’ve always talked about the discovery of the Nockwood cards as an exploration of human behavior. The archetypes were designed to provide a framework for understanding and discussing behaviors of both brands and individuals. T...

I find the traditional 12 Jungian archetypes limited.(There I said it!). They are too predictable and every brand has become far too comfortable with their archetype.  What was once used as a filter, or a lens through which brands became focused, has become a re-enforc...

I just came back from a wonderful evening at the Rubin Museum from a talk by A.T Mann and Schuyler Brown called “The future of the Feminine”.

The new reading method is working wonderfully.  When you change the order of the suits a lot of things start to fall into place.  I spoke to Graham Wood and we are going to see what the cards look like if we change the colors of the 'spades' suit to green and the color...

As mentioned in my last post 'Finding a Nockwood card to represent a person or a topic', I've been looking for a method or 'spread' that allows for a reading around a specific topic.   

This 'spread' includes elements from "social intuitionalism" that I descri...

Several users have asked me how they might do a reading about a specific topic.  So far, the 'old road' method (for brands) and the 'Mary method' (originally 3 cards, more recently 4 cards) have allowed the cards to decide the topic as well as the narrative. 

As I'...

Just as Alchemists of old looked for symmetries in the the world to understand the laws of nature, so I feel I’m finding symmetries to understand the laws of HUMAN nature. Indeed, the process of creating the Nockwood archetypes was a process of identifying symmetries,...
