Human Design Notes- Type and Strategy

This post is  a simple recap of Type and Strategy in Human Design. There are 4 types with one type, the Generators having a subset called Manifesting Genrators. Two of the Types , Generators and Manifestors are ‘Energy’ Types meaning they have direct access to source energy withing their design if they follow their correct strategy and Authority (see here for info on Authority). The other two types are Non-Energy Types- the Reflectors and Projectors- they sample the energy of others and/or the environment and use their experiential wisdom to increase the understanding, awareness and productivity of the Energy Types.

If you are a Generator (70% of the population): Generators are the generative force of creation embodied- life itself is generated out of the sacral center. They are physically designed to respond to life from the moment they get out of bed in the morning til when they go to sleep. Your correct decision making mechanism is response- to act in response: when every decision is made in response, a Generator will know themselves. When you are not responding to Life according to your correct Strategy and Authority, you will find yourself in Frustration- so Frustration is a signal that tells you, you have been acting out of conditioning or your ‘not-self’ (all those white spaces in your chart).

As a Generator (unlike Manifestors) you have no idea where you are going until you respond- Generators are potentially the most powerful of all the types but unless you Know Yourself and understand how you work you can end up being the most frustrated people on earth.

Manifesting Generators (31% of population): These are Manifestors with a Generator Strategy: Love to be in the thick of life; greatest dilemma is to learn that their true power comes from waiting for opportunities to come to them….actively trying to pursue their goals and dreams they will encounter resistance and pain…when they relax their lives flow almost magically. They experience both Frustration and Anger when acting out of conditioning.

 

While Generators are here to know themselves,

Projectors are here to know and understand ‘the other’.

Reflectors are here to understand the environment and the impact of the environment on themselves and others.

Manifestors are here to to understand their impact upon the other.

 

If you are a Projector (21% of the population): Your correct strategy is to wait to be invited and to listen to your own authority to sense whether the invitation is correct for you. The Projector is here to see, know, understand and guide the other- particularly Generators. While their mind is busy getting to know others invitations begin to arrive. Trust you will be seen and recognised and the invitations will come. When you are feeling bitter it’s a signal to you that you have been acting out of conditioning or conditioned responses and not according to your correct strategy.

 

Reflectors are only 1% of the population and are deeply conditioned by the world around them, yet the Reflector is genetically designed as a vehicle to be totally conditioned. A Reflector is here to BE in the conditioned environment that operated cyclically through the lunar cycle. The Reflector strategy is to wait out the 28 day cycle of the moon before making any important decisions. If you are a Manifestor (only 8% of the population): You are specifically designed not to be controlled by anyone and you guys are the only true initiators… You are designed to act directly and to put things into motion…. Your correct strategy (which does not come naturally) is to inform those who will be affected by your actions of what you are about to do before you act. When you act without informing those who will be affected you will meet with resistance as people feel ignored or steam-rollered by you. When you are stuck in anger it’s a signal to you that you are not following your correct strategy and have been acting out of conditioning or ‘not-self’.

 

If you are a Manifestor (only 8% of the population):

Your correct strategy (which does not come naturally) is to inform those who will be affected by your actions of what you are about to do before you act. When you act without informing those who will be affected you will meet with resistance as people feel ignored or steam-rollered by you.

When you are stuck in anger it’s a signal to you that you are not following your correct strategy and have been acting out of conditioning or ‘not-self’.

 

Each type has a very differentiated way of being in the world environment; we’ve all been conditioned to the Manifestors way of being in this reality ie to believe we can initiate (indeed that to be successful in this reality you should inititate projects, ideals, relationships etc) when it is only 8% of the population (Manifestors) who have a body vehicle designed to initiate action. Generators respond; Proejectors wait for the invitation and Reflectors wait out a lunar cycle before making decisions.
