According to Human Design, there are four types of people. Like four types of vehicles, each with its own mechanics and out of that- its movement, its purpose, its gifts, and its conditioning. Each type has a different aura, and a different strategy for decision making, rooted in their mechanics.
Generator & Manifesting Generator
Together they make up around 70% of the population. They all have one thing in common – a sacral center. That red square in the map, symbolizing the most powerful engine in the body, the one that generates life force itself.
Sacral beings have an amazing energy to build this world, to work, to do. They are energy beings. They are very powerful, yet most of them do not know their power, because they are so conditioned to try to be what they are not. Instead of being satisfied, healthy, energetic creatures, most of them feel tired, confused and deeply frustrated. They are slaves to their mind, thus feeling slaves to life and all its chores, and their energy is wasted and stuck, creating all kinds of problems in the body and mind. Illness, depression, fatigue, and more.
Manifesting Generators also have anger, like Manifestors. In addition to the sacral defined, they have one of the motors in the map connected to their throat, and they feel the pressure to initiate more than Generators.
It is the same for them as it is for the other types; the first Human Design rule for both of them is “don’t listen to your mind when it tells you what to do”. Mind is not our authority.
If you are a Generator or a MG, you are here to respond to life, not initiate in it. You have an open and enveloping aura, a magnetic aura that will pull everything you need towards you. The sacral is here to dance with life, and you are here to let the energy move you. You are here to do what your energy is available for. So, your strategy is WAIT TO RESPOND. Making decisions as a response to what you are being asked, or offered, will get you on your correct path.
If you respond out of your inner authority, according to your map (either the sacral or the solar plexus) you will make the correct decisions, and your energy will move correctly. You will be healthy, energetic, satisfied, and peaceful.
Manifestors are also energy beings, but they are very different from Generators. They are designed to do, but since their sacral is not defined, they are not here to work a lot, or in a consistent manner for a long time. The manifestors energy is not designed for a marathon, but for sprints. They are the ones that are here to initiate the new, their energy is focused on that, and for that. It is very yang.
Manifestors are less than 9% of the population. They are very different and they feel it. Others feel it too, and often feel uncomfortable with manifestors. If you are a manifestor, you have a closed, dense, and repelling aura. Therefore, you probably wonder why you seem to relate differently than most people, and might even think something is wrong with you. It’s not! Your aura is designed that way to protect you from resistance, so you can move forward in space in new ways. You are here to initiate and impact.
Most manifestors, like most humans, do not live in a way that is correct for them. They follow their conditioned mind, and try to respond or wait for an invitation, as if they are generators or projectors. They are filled with rage; in the reaction to others initiating with them, when they are conditioned as to what they do, when they are told or asked, and as a result of a lifetime of feeling not understood. As children they are either punished more than everyone, or are over protected, because they are unpredictable and uncontrollable. That way they are tamed. And while all the others are conditioned to initiate and manifest, they are the ones who are told to stop doing whatever they want.
Manifestors should not listen to their mind as authority. They should wait for the world to push them to initiate, through their inner authority. Their strategy is to inform. It helps others understand and accept them, and reduces the resistance. It also builds a bridge, helps their communication with the world, and enables the correct impact. Living according to strategy and authority will bring them peace.
Projectors are non- energy type. With no sacral defined, and no motor to the throat, they are not designed to do, they are designed to wait. Being outside of the energy, they can truly see it. They are here to guide the energy, to guide the energy types. Their gift is this seeing, their question is “who are you?” They recognize, and wait to be recognized, to be seen by the other.
Projectors are approx. 21% of the population. They are very conditioned in these generative world. Conditioned to do, work, initiate, they are usually “super slaves”, exhausting themselves and feeling very bitter, like the taste of life is not what it should be. They also amplify the frustration of generators. But if they are correct they will know success, this is what life holds for them.
If you are a projector, your aura is a focused one. It is penetrating the person that is in front of you, absorbing energy, and probing in them. It is a very strong aura that can feel uncomfortable to the other. When not invited, penetration is not a pleasant thing. When invited, there is a sense of intimacy with projectors, like with no other type.
Projectors often time feel rejected, because they tell what they see without being invited, and are pushed out by the other. They are much better with one on one interaction than a group one. The exception is when they are leading a group, they truly shine there. They are leaders. But they have to be invited to these leading in order for it to work.
As a projector, your strategy is to wait for the invitation. If you wait to be invited to speak, to do, to go, to be in a relationship etc. you will feel the sweetness of success. The right energy will be there for you, and your wisdom will be acknowledged.
Reflectors are rare. Less than 1.5% of the population, they are the ones with no definition. All the centers in their map are white, open. They have only defined gates. They have no fixed self as everyone else does.
Reflectors are here to reflect the world around them, their community. They are like a barometer for the program, their question is “who are they?” This is why place is the most important thing for them in life. Being in the right place, with the right people around, they will experience what is there for them in this life – surprise. Reflectors love to surprise and be surprised. They have a closed aura that opens to sample the other, they are searching for the different, for the glitches in the matrix. When life is not correct, it is a constant disappointment for them.
If you are a reflector, you are a lunar being. You are like a learning program that moves and changes with the moon, in a 28.5 days long pattern. Since there is no fixedness in you, there is no inner authority in the body that is always there for you, it is in constant movement. So your strategy for making a decision is to wait 28.5 days. To wait that cycle of the moon, and let information move through the pattern. After that there might be clarity. Reflectors, more than everyone, need time. Lots of it.
So take your time, and be in the right place.
