According to Human Design, people fall into five distinct types. Each type has a distinct pattern of defined or undefined energy centers.
The defined centers indicate consistent energy that that person can always draw on.
For example, Manifestors . They are the only type that is pure initiating energy - the only type that can “just Do It!” They have a defined Throat center so they don’t have to wait to start things up. However, in spite of their ability to initiate things, they do not have the sustained energy that comes from a defined Sacral. A regular nine-to-five job exhausts them and can anger the Manifestor. Most Manifestors do not understand their own energy and their many starts and few finishes can inflict feelings of inadequacy and failure. They make up about 8% of the population.
Then you have the pure Generator. Pure Generators are just like they sound – unstoppable energy! They make up about 37% of the population and are the worker-bees of the world. They are here to master their craft and easily live by the motto “Pick one thing and do it really great!” This is what my father used to tell me, but as a Reflector, I was completely flummoxed by this idea. Generator are production power-houses; give them a clear directive and then get out of their way.
Manifesting Generators combine this sustainable go-get-em energy with the just-do-it-right-now energy. Manifesting-Generators have a defined Throat center and comprise about 33 % of the population. These individuals can both start a project and do the work. T
People without this defined Sacral have energy, but it is less consistent. They need to be around people with the Sacral defined so they can draft their non-stop energy. They draft it and amplify it, and sometimes work harder than the Generators! They don't know when enough is enough. They work until they collapse, and their undefined energy centers can't create more energy. They need a day or two to recover.
Projectors make up about 20% of the population. They are the most misunderstood and challenged of all the types, yet they are also often the most capable leaders and visionaries in their professions. Their biggest challenge is finding the right team to lead – and waiting to be invited to lead them. They do not have sustainable energy, yet often adopt a “never say die” attitude and burn themselves out. They do better when they are well supported by teammates with defined Sacral energy.
About 1% of the population are Reflectors. All their energy centers are open; nothing is sustainable. They are not here to work the nine-to-five job, nor necessarily lead the team or start the business. However, they can absorb and amplify energy, and apply it to be successful in anything they pursue long enough. That's the key. With all their open centers they are here to sample life an become wise, and as a result are easily tempted to the next new thing to learn and do. They are also some of the nicest people on the planet, very empathetic and intuitive and too easily exploited. Can you say "doormat."
