Ten Things You Need to Know About Manifestors (Human Design)

Ah, yes. The manifestor.

Perhaps the most misunderstood class in the human design system.

…but also the most envied. Everyone *thinks* they want to be a manifestor. Sitting at only 8% of the world’s population, we manifestors are a rare bunch.

(Click here to find out what your class is.)

On the surface, manifestors are the most desirable class to be. We’re the only class that’s self-contained. We need nobody. We’re also the only class that can initiate action. Every other class has to wait.

Historically, the world was run by manifestors. They were the Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt, for example. Having the tendency to be rulers, manifestors have really set the stage for how people should live their lives.

But being a manifestor is not all that it’s cracked up to be. In this article I will debunk the most common myths about manifestors in an effort to inspire you to work with them instead of against them.

Manifestors bring a beautiful dynamic to planet earth. But it’s not an easy journey for us. And until we’re more understood, our existence will continue to impact people in negative ways.

Whether you know a manifestor or not, you’re bound to run into one. And it will be obvious. It is therefore crucial that you take a few moments to understand their impact. If you’re a manifestor, don’t hesitate to reach out to me…I will help you and guide you to your greatest destiny.

So let’s get started. Here’s the list, in no particular order:

 

Ten Things You Need to Know About Manifestors (Human Design)

 

#1 – Our aura is dense.

Manifestors are designed to push people out of the way. We repel other people emotionally as well as physically. Although essential to our design, this tends to distance us from other people. It’s common for manifestors to experience profound feelings of loneliness.

 

#2 – We don’t get to choose what we manifest.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I struggled with this. For years I practiced the Law of Attraction with pretty much ZERO results. And now I know that’s because manifestors are stuck in the matrix just like everyone else. Little do non-manifestors know, we also have to wait. You see, in order to manifest properly and healthily, the manifestor must wait until they achieve clarity in the body. And manifestors with a defined emotional center, like myself, must learn to wait an entire emotional cycle before making big decisions.

It can be a really dangerous thing when a manifestor thinks they know what they want to manifest. Usually, this means their manifesting from the mind and not the body. The best thing a manifestor can do for everyone is slow their mind down and learn to get in-tune and aware of their body. Clarity is the ultimate goal, not “certainty”. Certainty comes from the mind and clarity comes from the body. If there are any feelings of nervousness or anxiety in the body, then you are not clear. Wait for clarity.

By the way, this also goes for the other classes as well. Learn to be guided by your heart…and by your body…not your mind.

 

#3 – STOP trying to control manifestors!!

Oh my God. For the love of all that is holy…STOP IT. Stop trying to control manifestors. Stop telling us what to do. Stop trying to get us in a box. It fucking pisses us off and breeds resentment for all the other classes. Human Design is most effective when there’s harmony between the classes. Nothing disenfranchises the manifestor more than telling them what to do.

Many people make this mistake and it ends up leaving them frustrated, sad, and/or heartbroken. Face it: manifestors are lone wolves and can be extremely impulsive. Don’t take this personally. It’s just how manifestors are. If you ever stop hearing from a manifestor for a while, just assume that they went to go do a bunch of things.

 

#4 – Manifestors are always doing stuff.

Manifestors tend to be very busy because they are designed to take action and initiate/create. They strive to have a huge impact on the world. Although manifestors cannot sustain long-term energy output like generators can, their minds remain highly active at all times. Manifestors who are functioning healthily usually have two modes: exploding and regenerating. Their creative energy is released in powerful blasts that can leave the manifestor feeling drained for several hours or days at a time.

 

#5 – Let us recharge!

Look, I know how this sounds…but we manifestors require lots of rest. Since our minds are highly active, our bodies need to relax a lot of the time. That way, when it’s time to act we can explode into impressive action that’s characteristic of a manifestor. Most people are in awe of the explosive spontaneity of manifestors…but I find it far more impressive to watch a generator crank out consistent energy day-after-day for long stretches of time. If you’re a generator, remember that you’re designed for energy output…manifestors are not. Please…let us rest.

 

#6 – Leave us alone!

We’re lone wolves…no offense to you or anyone. Don’t try to trap a manifestor or get them to stay. Let them go. If you do, it will increase the odds that they’ll be back. You can make a manifestor feel comfortable with commitment if you give him or her lots of freedom in the relationship. Manifestors can make great partners if you’re willing to support them by reminding of their strategy to inform.

 

#7 – Remind manifestors to inform.

It is not uncommon for manifestors to become obsessed with ideas flying around in their heads. When this happens, it’s really easy for them to act impulsively without informing people of their actions. Because of this, manifestors can be seen as confusing, or even intimidating. No other class exhibits the initiative and spontaneity of the manifestor. It is for this reason that people are constantly trying to control them. The only way for manifestors to eliminate this resistance is by informing those close to them about their intentions.

If you’re a manifestor, informing is your friend. Remember that you’re not doing it for anyone but yourself. The purpose of informing is not to ask permission…it’s so you can meet with less resistance. By informing, you not only decrease resistance, but you’ll find that people actually want to support you and rally around those movements that you initiate as a manifestor. But…please…show respect to the other classes by first asking them or at least letting them know that you’re about to inform. Before you deliver the impact, ask: “Is it okay if I tell you something?”

Manifestors…make sure you’re making a clean impact on the world by knowing your power and respecting those people who might be affected by it. In just two words: be nice.

 

#8 – The traditional manifestor model is dead.

The last thing the world needs is more rulers. As the world becomes more globally conscious, the need for leaders decreases. Manifestors in today’s world need to stay far away from any impulses to rule over the other classes. Instead, focus on initiating and then moving on. Stick and move, manifestor. Your job here is to impact and initiate…everything else should be left to the other classes.

 

#9 – The role of the manifestor is counter-intuitive.

When the word “manifestor” is used, images of domineering rulership often come to mind. But upon closer examination, you’ll see that a healthy manifestor is there to serve others. If you look at initiating as a service to the non-initiating classes, then you’re truly using your powers for the good of the planet. Traditionally, manifestors have a “receiving” (read: taking) energy. But manifestors in the new world should instead focus on giving. You can still be a lone wolf and contribute to the overall harmony of the planet. If you are a manifestor and you want to have a good life, focus on using your powers to be of service to others, not at odds with them.

 

#10 – Manifestors can often be intimidating.

The manifestor is designed to push energy out of the way, which is useful for clearing old/negative energy on the planet. On top of this, manifestors have an initiating energy that’s often spontaneous. Because of this, it’s quite normal for the other types to feel a little bit insecure or fearful around manifestors. If you don’t understand their frequency, it can easily come across as quite intimidating. Because of this, many people are constantly suspicious and on-guard around manifestors, which can get really tiresome for everyone involved. This level of resistance can really take its toll on manifestors, driving many of them to give up manifesting altogether.

 

#11 (Bonus) – Manifestors are NOT generators.

Generators love telling manifestors what to do and how to do it. To a generator, the world is an entirely different experience. Generators…listen up! We do not have the same energy signature that you do. We are not designed to output energy all day every day. If you’re a generator, count your blessings and be grateful for your abilities. But stop holding us manifestors to your standards. We can’t do what you do. Our energy is an initiating one, not a sustaining one. It is severely damaging to the mind, body, and soul of a manifestor to behave as if he/she is a generator. It might take many years, but eventually serious mental and physical health problems can emerge from a manifestor trying to keep up with a generator. Stop trying to keep up with the generator…you won’t be able to anyway.

 

#12 (Bonus) – We’re here to experience deep peace.

Everyone loves peace. But the ultimate goal of every manifestor is to experience deep peace. It is so intertwined with who they are, that it’s essential for them to achieve peace in their lives. As my good friend John Martin says, “There is a sweetness about a manifestor that’s just being authentic.” When you combine the dense and hard aura of a manifestor with their genuine sweetness, you end up creating a beautiful harmony that can create a massive positive resonance in the world. So be nice to us, okay? We love you!

    Nice tips! Thanks for sharing.

    My 5 month old son is a manifestor (to two generator parents) and I can already see his determination and focus. Clearly he knows what he wants and how to get it! His desires to discover push his physical development; this kid is not content to sit still and watch the world pass by.

    I am curious if the open sacral center of manifestors (and projectors & reflectors) can be an energy drain to us generators? I’ve also heard that manifestors should sleep alone so their sacral center isn’t unnecessarily influenced and this disruptive to their restoration. I’d love to hear what you think!

      Make sure to give him a reasonable amount of freedom and space to develop himself. And, yes, he will be an energy drain on both of you…but not because of his open sacral center lol.

      Yes, as a manifestor you should sleep alone. But while he’s a baby, he needs to sleep close to his parents. Only until his aura develops should he sleep alone. Trust me, you’ll know.

      Auras go through walls and doors (~3-6 foot out), so keep that in mind.

      I personally must sleep alone, far away from others.

    Hello,
    Thanks for this article. 2 month ago, I found out that I am a manifestor. I gained a lot of clearity but in fact, I do 1000 things but do not know where to go in life. I am always looking for something new and want to explore everything. If somebody wants to control me, I am getting crazy – same within the relationship.
    It is always difficult for me to work with people, because I have such high requirements that some guys are afraid of me and I often hurt somebody – when I am honestly and say what I am thinking.
    But I want to know how to behave, and how to find my way? Do you have more stuff to read – how to live as a manifestor?
    Thank you,
    Marleen from Austria :)

    Hi. Thanks for your article. Made me a little sad. I’ve been trying to use the law of attraction (almost depserately) to manifest better health, money, freedom and a better life. I’m curious to know why it doesn’t work for us manifestors. I’ve also bought a bunch of subliminal mp3’s very recently o help me change my thinking and I just started experimenting with tapping (EFT). Do you believe those work for manifestors?
    Regards,

      Thanks for your note. A lot of people will disagree with me when I say that manifestors don’t work that way. EFT, MP3s, Law of Attraction…it’s all bullshit. Throw it away. Throw it all away…and you will be hit with all of these things out of nowhere.

      You have to detach from all the experts’ advice. Stop reading books for a while…maybe for months or even a year. Trust your own gut. Learn to observe your energy levels. Make rest your top priority. Relax. Do nothing. Stop trying. Stop desiring. Just accept life as it comes and stop trying.

      That’s the best advice I have for manifestors. You’ll be tempted to listen to others again, but you must refuse.

      Their advice will never work for you. You, manifestor, are the initiator. Initiate your own truths and you’ll get all of these things and more.

      Hope this helps, comrade. Best to you.

        Thank you! I can completely say that is true. Since many years now I refuse to read books and if I try I cannot I just stop after a few sentences it is too much. Then i thought I should study and learn more and i found the university and the teachings in natural healing all were in a kind of system that my body did reject and critisise. Still the old system and I was not able to go with it. Feeling it has to change….and for myself waiting for more than two years now to find a new goal where i can put my energy. Still did not arrive. Meanwhile I did help people to clean their house or to clutterclear, but there was my energy often too much for them and they were not ready for that big change that I was introducing. And I guess I need to learn to communicate better so not to be like an intruder that takes over.

        I realize this post is over a year old, but I disagree with disposing of the LoA. One of the issues with the Law of Attraction is that it is often portrayed as “positive thinking” or “fake it till you make it,” which is only a small fraction of what you attract into your reality. The Secret fucked up. Considering that the human mind largely operates within the subconscious and unconscious, it is rarely apparent that you are attracting what your ego or conscious mind finds painful or undesirable. What you believe to be true (generally learned patterns from your childhood) is the strongest point of attraction. Additionally, since LoA operates on an emotional level, if you are attracting from a place of resistance, “I have to get better,” your focus is actually on the thing you’re trying to get rid of, which in this case is your illness. While I would say most people are resistant to life (i.e. their desires are based on what they do NOT want, rather than focused on what they DO want), this is especially true with Manifestors, which is why it may seem that “detaching” from it may actually be beneficial, because you are moving out of resistance. All too often, people resort to things like EFT or even spirituality in general because they are trying to escape the way they feel. Manifestors must be ESPECIALLY mindful of this, because what you resist will persist! Starting off with small manifestations can be beneficial, because these things are not coming from a place of resistance of what currently is. As you Realize that you are the creator of your own reality, you will organically come to understand why your life is the way it is, and from this perspective of ORGANIC detachment from pain, you can master manifestation. If you force detachment, you will eventually hit a ceiling, so-to-speak.

    Not sure if this is true of everyone but we tend to be fast, both in getting thing done and in everything else. The entire world moves in slow motion. We tend to think and act in “Leaps”. I find people often get confused and have trouble following me.

    Hello,
    I have only just found out that I am a Manifestor, this is all very new to me! However, your article makes complete sense and is spot on for me. I would like some advice about how a Manifestor can achieve having a successful relationship? I would like to start a new relationship, but I’m afraid now as I never seem to ‘fit’…. Is this because I have not yet met the right ‘fit’ for me? Or should I accept that as a Manifestor, I may never have a happy, harmonious, loving relationship?

      I’m a manifestor and I have an amazing relationship all across the board. Take my advice with a grain of salt. My relationship was absolutely magical and it fell from heaven. The way I obtained it was by focusing on myself and detaching from the outcome. I recommend you remove yourself from the excessive desire, focus on being a happy/harmonious person, and then it will be much easier to attract the partner you want. Feel free to email me if you’d like to talk more. Thx

        Hello again…
        Actually, that is what I have been doing really – much to the annoyance of my friends who think I should post on a dating website, as one friend said; “You do realise the only way you’re going to meet someone is to go online dating!” Whaaat? Yes, she’s crazy and thankfully I’ve never listened to her! I do seem to attract some great guys, but ones in which I can’t imagine having a long-term happy, harmonious relationship with. I shan’t sweat the small stuff and continue to be happy just being me and doing what I love to do. If someone awesome comes along then great, if not, so be it! Thank you for reminding me to chillax..!

          Your friends’ advice is foolish. Every wise person knows to focus on the energy behind one’s actions…not the actions themselves.

          When you attract great guys, make sure you’re not doing things to push them away. Seeing a dating coach would be a good thing for you. They can help you see all the tiny, subconscious ways we humans plague our relationships before they even begin.

          Detach from your relationship desires and focus on self development. The first step to a quality, loving relationship with others is a quality, loving relationship with yourself.

          Do that and the right man will be magically attracted into your life when/if the time is right. Hope this helps.

    You guys have leadership and rulership really mixed up. We’ve only known dark and distorted forms of both in this world and have yet to experience the balanced, love filled kind. It is natural to judge it as bad and tempting to dismiss it entirely when you have only known the twisted, abusive forms of it. I have news for you, it’s not going to go away, but will be reborn in a different, more loving form.

    Leaders are like administrators of a school. They are there to keep things running, make sure the environment is safe and to look after the children while they are learning their lessons, as well as being an example for them. Hopefully, the children will grow up and graduate and move on to something else. The Leaders in turn, might only serve a few years in this role. This is how I see the manifestor, creating or leading a system, or movement and then moving on once it is established.

    Considering that I have met many people who are “conscious” who still act out of their ego and shadow side like bratty little toddlers on a regular basis and are in complete denial of this, I am sure that leadership is going to be around and needed for awhile.

    Sincerely,
    An Emotional Manifestor, born on the incarnation cross of Rulership.

    I been struggling with my relation cause I feel I am very demanding.

    Also, my profession demands coordinating with others and at times directing or leading the team. I have noticed in my 5 years in this profession, people hardly conflict with me or go against my directions. They always listen to me and are happy when I lead or direct them. They also open up to m about their personal lives and secrets pretty smoothly…Is this a part of manifesting energy?

    I will appreciate if I can get some direction on how to utilize my skills for personal and professional growth.

    You succeeding in your writing to give a 6-2 Emotionally Defined Manifestor with the Cross of Confrontation peace. thank you!

    It is so helpful to remind a manifestor they are different AND it is ok. Educating others who live around a manifestor is so essential for peaceful dealings.

    You mentioned generators in your article. What is your experience with manifestor projector dealings?

    Hello there, thank you for this article and for a chance to ask a few questions. I am a 1/3 projector, my son (now 12) is a 3/6 manifestor. I am raising him on my own (his father passed in 2007). The issue we are having is with school. I home schooled him until this last year (his decision to start public school), and he is “failing”because he doesn’t care about or find useful his school work. How do I teach him integrity? He seems to pay no mind to consequences at school, or home (I generally take electronics away). He can easily occupy himself other ways and has zero interest in his schooling. He gets angry when I encourage or push him to do better. He wants to be home schooled again, but I feel that may be letting him off easily and he will not learn a life lesson that way… Help!?

      Yeah it sucks being a young manifestor. Tell him to email me and we’ll set up a call. As far as you’re concerned, I’d let him do what he wants. School is poison to everyone, especially manifestors. Get him out of school. Let him go and let him do what he wants. Your job is to figure out what HE wants to do and then help him make that happen. If he wants to play video games and smoke pot, let him. Otherwise you’re going to fuck him up like I was fucked up. Trust me, Kate. Even if he wants to do nothing at all — as long as he’s not actively putting himself or others in danger — let the behavior play out. He will get bored of this very quickly. Give it a couple years or so. If you let him conduct his own life, the passion will emerge. It has to. It cannot but manifest. That’s what he’s designed for. The reason it’s not shining through is because his soul is being crushed. I know you’re a good mom and that you mean well…that’s why you reached out. But if you want my strong, strong advice: let the young man do what he wants to do. I also lost my father at an early age (age 13). He was my best friend, also a manifestor. I come from a long line of manifestors. The best thing you can do for him and the planet is let him do whatever he wants. The behavior will eventually re-balance and he will then be able to begin the path of finding his destiny. Trust me. Facilitate what he wants to do. School is bullshit for manifestors. You have to take my word on this.

    Hello I’m a Manifestor and have Aspergers. I’m a 27 year old male who is fit and practices martial arts most of my life but I can’t seem to attract a mate. It’s very uncomfortable for me to go through the motions of what others do when they meet new people and flirt and go through the whole dating process. I really just like to do my own thing and talk about my interests. When other people talk they usually bore me or annoy me. What would be your advice for this because deep down I do long for a girlfriend it just feels like its not my design to do the things it takes to get one.

      Thanks for writing. I would say that there is not only someone for you, but potentially millions. My advice to you would be to go out and take action to meet more people, be yourself, and then see which of them respond favorably. Sounds like you’re just casually coming across people and then getting pissed off about it. You should watch my video on being pissed off. Take the energy and go out into the world with it and transmute it into action and power. Initiate, manifestor, and you will eventually find peace. If you want, I can also connect you with my spirit guide. He is a generator and understands this sort of issue very well. Thank you and have a nice day. Go meet more people. Hundreds. Thousands. And your day will be even nicer. Thanks again.

    Hi DC

    I’m totally enjoying your videos and blog posts.

    I’m a Projector. Relatively new to Human Design.

    Today is my first day looking into Manifestors. It’s so easy to get really into one’s own type. What a fascinating bunch you Manifestors are. I wonder what part of the Universe you are from… I’m pretty sure I’m from the Pleadies, or the Big Dipper. One of those 😉

    Anyway …. Manifestors are not alone in their feelings of alienation, disappointment, and thwarted will power.

    Man … I have struggled for so long in this life… I *knew* I was a Projector, but didn’t know, you know?

    I think my Dad’s a Manifestor, brother’s a Manifesting Generator, and Mom is a Generator with 8 defined Centers. Mom and brother always seemed to be close in a way I just couldn’t understand. Dad was always wanting me to go out and ‘Do,’ like he , Mom and Brother could.

    In case you don’t know: Projectors are Non-Sacral beings… we get wiped out if we try to keep up with Generators too. But since we can Amplify the energy of Generators around us, we are often seen as brighter and shinier versions of themselves, and they try to control us too.

    I’ve known my whole life that I’m not meant to ‘work, work, work,’ like so many others, but before Human Design, I could never justify it. I assumed that there was something wrong with me – I was either missing something, or was inherently lazy, entitled, or any of the other terrible things my father used to say about me, which I have spent years of my life trying to unlearn.

    Anyway … do I want to be a Manifestor? I guess there’s a little jealousy – why should you get to initiate, and I have to wait to be invited..? F – that!

    As a Projector, I have also found the Law of Attraction to be elusive, at best … until I get so focused on loving myself, that I don’t really care what the rest of the world is doing.

    When I can be with myself, do yoga, pray, meditate, journal, pole dance, sing, play music, and *play* at my work … the world comes knocking at my door!

    I met my amazing Projector husband when I stopped caring so much whether the world was paying attention to me. Ironically … he’s a Projector that has a relative amount of fame and success, so by letting go of needing something from the world … the recognition and status that I always felt I deserved (for some unknown reason) … came to me.

    When I get too focused on trying to make something happen …. people ignore me, reject me, misunderstand me … and I feel completely invisible and unwanted by the world.

    I guess I’m sharing because I wanted you to know that Manifestors are not the only misunderstood and unappreciated ‘class’ (Type) on Esrth.

    I’m pretty sure that I am a Star (literally: a ball of Love and Light) that chose to come to Earth to help the Generators here to raise their frequency. Even before I discovered Human Design, I’ve been meditating with Stat Energy for a few years … and it feels like Home.

    I think you Manifestors have been hanging around Earth for a while … we Projectors are only here for a bit. Talk about feeling alien. I’ve felt ‘other’ my whole life.

    Just FYI.

    Hope this helps you to find Peace with your Design.

    As for me … I’m focusing on the Success that is already all around me, and letting go of trying to make more come my way. It will when I’m ready, and I’ll only know that when the moment comes ( and my Spleen speaks).

    Blessings

      Yeah this is interesting. I think the study of human design is not perfect…and just like with anything, strange anomalies occur. So I would encourage you to study human design insofar as it resonates with you and if you’re a little bit of both classes, then let that shine through. I’m actually about to shoot a video on this and I’ll post it soon. So look out for that!

It helps us understanding and explaining so many things and strugles in our lifes! With what I read I believe my litle brother and my mother are as well manifestors. And we share as well the same chinese sign, the cock, but I cant find anything about this.

    Hello and thank you for sharing this insightful post.
    I have a question about Manifestors interacting with one another. I am not entirely sure if my flatmate is a Manifestor. I looked up her birthday, but as I don’t have her time of birth, and it is one of those days that, depending on the time, could result in Generator, Generator-Manifestor, or Manifestor, I can only speculate. She is extremely bossy. She informs people, and people seem to listen to her because she thinks of herself as an intimidating person, but she uses her abilities to manipulate others. She thinks fear is respect, and is extremely judgemental and clashes with me very greatly. She tries to control everyone in the flat by laying down rules or mandatory shopping contributions or kitchen cleaning. She especially loves how people listen to her and tend to her every need, like the younger flatmate whom I think is a Generator. However, she can’t boss me around at all. She clearly doesn’t like me because she has no authority over me. I do my own thing. I am a lone wolf, but I think that because I wasn’t brought up learning how to inform that I never really learnt how to implement my abilities. Now that I know my human design, I’ve started to inform people, and I can see the change. I take a lot of time in my decisions and wait until things resonant, which can be difficult because I am in my head a lot. Either way, had to give a bit of background. Do Manifestors tend to butt heads like this? Or is she probably a Generator or Generator-Manifestor who has found a way to manipulate others and views me as a threat because I truly am a Manifestor? Thanks for the advice!

      Haha yeah good question. Manifestors can butt heads or they can be best friends. I know what you mean though and she might be a manifestor. Would you say she’s an “angry” person? If so she might be a manifestor. But it doesn’t matter a whole lot to you, you just keep doing your thing.

      But the main thing I’ve learned about human design is that it’s just a framework to help you gain a general understanding. In order to understand further, one could do a deeper investigation into the person’s chart. But even then, there are anomalies, just like with everything. Just like with everything in life, weird stuff happens that doesn’t conform to the rules. If I were you I’d worry less about her human design and just treat her like a person who’s clearly afraid in life and don’t let it bother you. Sounds like you’re already doing that though so just don’t let her affect you, haha.

    #8 “focus on initiating”
    According to my experience, nowadays has initiating almost no value for peoole. Maybe there is value in it, but nobody will give you bread or money for initiating. The world looks for generators doing things, and pays for finishing things – for results, not for initiating them or for ideas. As initiator, ideamaker, innovator (Manifestor), I am many times confronted with the fact, that besides that there is no payment, even the authorship is taken away by the ones working on it or finishing it (most usualy the one presenting results :-) .

    As initiating Manifestor, many times I was blamed of coming with new ideas, addressing new possibilities or better ways of doing things and not going into ther implementation by myself. Even that I am to critical and pesimistic, when I was trying to make existing things and processes better by showing the new way and trying to initiate changes.

    What kind of job is it, where you are accepted and payed for innitiating things and letting others to do and finish them ?
    Where you come with ideas and share the benefits of their implementation ?

      Manifesting generators are amazing creatures. They have immense energy and move very fast. I love manifesting generators because their energy is so intense and they’re able to do juggle lots of things at once. They are definitely the “get it done” type and can move quickly once they’ve responded. Their strategy is the same as generators, to respond. I recommend you study them deeper.

    Emotional manifestor here with a 4/6 profile (26 years old). I see a lot of similarities between my personality and profile (and authority). But I can’t really identify myself with everything that is being said about manifestors. I lack a lot motivation, and that initiative power that make manifestors running around, working on things all the time.
    #4, for me, is just not there. I’m not working all the time and I’m not a workaholic by far. It’s actually quite the opposite. The fatigue theme is strong, along with my dense pulling/repelling aura and the alone time factor (because I can’t recharge while there are people around me, since human interaction requires my energy + I require a lot of sleep).
    I’m not sure if this is due to my emotional authority having an absurdly long cycle that is containing me, or negative conditioning via parents, community or other generators so to speak. (or just being an overly lazy and exhausted pal)

      Thanks for your comment. The thing I want to stress is that human design is a framework for you to use in order to begin exploring yourself. Don’t try to fit into any one category. Instead, understand what things ring true for you and embrace those instead of being rigid.

      Also, I would recommend that you get a lot more rest, as you seem rather depleted. I think if you spend too much time doing things you don’t want to do that you will quickly become drained and unable to step into your full true design (whatever that may be). I would also experiment with getting better at informing, as this practice could hold the keys to unleashing your creative and energy potential.

      Just like with nature, there are anomalies in the human design system. Don’t try to cram yourself into belonging into any one standard definition of being.

      Good luck, comrade :)

        Thanks for your quick answer.
        It\’s just almost everything in the 4/6 about me is true. Same goes for the emotional manifestor with the exception of #4, which is why I really want to figure out if I have that potential and, if yes, what\’s inhibiting it to \’manifest\’. Also I\’m resting quite a lot (at least I think I am). I am aware that I need more time to recharge and I am definitely not reluctant to take it.
        Maybe there are just some trivial things that consume my energy so much that I feel so depleted. Or my understanding of \’always working on something\’ differs in a way that this work has to be meaning- or useful. Because so far I don\’t feel like having accomplished much. I could imagine this being a part of the 4/6 going through 30 years of chaos first until they stabilise.
        And what do you mean by informing. I know that informing would be a good strategy to reduce friction and opposition of other types, but how could it help to unleash my potential?

          Keep in mind you may be socially conditioned with a version of “working” or “keeping busy” that actually doesn’t fit your own definition. Of course, there is usually a lot of fear when a person decides to override their programming in an effort to understand their true selves.

          I think you’re not in tune with #4 because you’re not aligned with your purpose. If you were, then you would be taking massive aligned action toward all the things you love to do. Get a pen and piece of paper and write at the top, “What is my greatest purpose?” Then just stream-of-consciousness-style keep writing answers to that question. Do this exercise for 20 minutes straight or until you arrive at something that moves you emotionally and/or makes you feel like you want to cry.

          Informing is a very complicated strategy. I will have to do a video on that topic for sure. I think as far as you are concerned, just focus on finding out what you want your life to look like and what your purpose is. Then, when you go out in the world, keep that at the forefront of your consciousness. Let people know that you’re moving toward a new life path and that it’s something you’ve always wanted to do. But don’t start informing until you feel the certainty and sureness in your own body, or you might take offense when you trigger unwanted reactions from people. Just remember there is a huge difference between informing and “telling” or “announcing”. Inform quietly…confidently…and then take the first few steps toward your vision. But you have to take the first few steps, no matter how slight.

          If you take care of the inches, the universe will take care of the miles. So step forth, even if it feels like you’re barely scratching the surface.

          Good luck, comrade!

            The lack of purpose bugged me my entire life. The only logically and emotionally in tune purpose I see for myself right now, is to build my own family. Something that is not easily forced, or is dependant on more than just my resolve to change things or to go ahead. Maybe I’m also too fearful to allow myself to find purpose that is not appreciated/accepted by our society (to a certain extent). But I’ll do as you said. I’ll reactivate my #4 for the purpose of finding purpose.

    Hello from a Generator here, surviving many hard years around Manifestors at home, completely soaked in their not-self :)

    Now I\’ll allow myself to tell you what to do: rethink the entire concept of being a Manifestor! The reason is your #3 – if you get people to the point where they need to tell you what to do, you have totally lost your ability to inform. Just get it – there is timing: first, you inform. Then you wait for your turn to get the attention, then you manifest and transform the world. It\’s not up to your decision when is the right time to kick into initiating – it\’s other being\’s energy you\’re relying on to make yourself worthy.

    A lot of anger I see here… On it\’s own is the prove of your self-destructive use of power :)

      Good points you have made here. In some ways this article represents the not self theme of anger but that is very much a feature of the amateur Manifestor. It is never easy to inform and this article presents that common theme to non-manifestors. Perhaps I need to do a follow up article for more advanced concepts of the manifestor. Thanks so much for the interesting comment, I appreciate it.

      Like I tell everyone, if your profile doesn’t fit you then ignore it. Study all of the profiles and figure out for yourself where you fit it. The thing about human design is that it is too deterministic to be perfectly exact all the time. Just like in nature, there are anomalies. Find your own path and who you are. You can study human design to get some ideas, and when the ideas come in that make you feel inspired, then own that. Don’t focus on what you don’t want, focus on what you do want. And have faith that the universe (or God if you will) also wants you to have the thing you want. So don’t get attached to human design like it’s somehow holding the keys to your fate. This is your life, do what you want and be who you want to be. Good luck!

    Thank you for this insightful article. I’m new to human design and discovering myself as a Manifestor which makes so much sense already. My comment/question is around the issue of control. I have been under the influence of control starting with my father and carrying over into my personal relationships with men. The “inform before you act” or “get permission” has been proven time time again to be ineffective. Consent for my freedom to act has been denied or met with anger. This had led me into being a rebellious sneaky lone wolf who does not inform anymore and just does things behind the scenes when I know what I seek to inform will be denied or berated. I realize this way of being is not at all living in my power of creation. Any wisdom on how to transform this dynamic?

      Yes. I am going to be deliberately brief with my response, so that you get the full effect.

      Do not be with any person who denies you your freedom. Inform all people that you cannot be with anyone that limits your potential to live the life you want to live. Be very clear with all future relationships about what freedoms you require. Do not sneak. Always be upfront. Sneaking is bad for you and your soul.

    Hello D/C !
    First of all I want to thank you for your transmission.
    I love your energy and the way you approach things. That speaks to me.

    I\’ve just read all the reviews and it is very informative.
    I recognize a lot of my questions or feelings. I am a splenic manifestor (1/3).

    For 3 years, I\’ve been experiencing a dark night of the soul. I believe – hope – that the process of transformation will soon come to an end.
    However, it is difficult for me to get back in touch with the \”other players\”. I no longer want to inform them. That drains a lot of energy.
    I just want to be left alone. Is it serious doctor? 🤒

      No sir it’s not serious. I do know the sentiment very well. I know what it’s like to just want to be left alone. It’s good for manifestors to be in their own energy.

      However, you’re also a human being, which means you’re a social animal. Friendship, love, companionship, and cooperation will bring you the most peace.

      But as a manifestor, you want to make sure you focus on yourself, sleep by yourself, and spend a lot of time alone and recharging.

      The way a manifestor has relationships is quite special. It’s a delicate balancing act of selflessness and selfishness. You’ll need to learn to be close with people without having to be codependent in such a way that it drains your energy.

      Your energy is precious and it’s easy to give it away in small, unforeseen ways. This is usually what makes a manifestor want to just be left alone. It’s because they have not learned to interact with people without draining themselves. It’s all about peace of mind. And the more steady and sure you are about informing, the better you will become at managing your energy and staying connected without getting drained.

      Once you learn this your confidence will begin to improve dramatically, which always helps you retain your space and your energy.

      But be very careful when it comes to reclusing. It can be a dangerous thing. Be careful. And make sure you’re taking care of yourself.

        I smile reading the warning about reclusion… You pointed out a karmic challenge!
        To resume, in one of my past lives, I was a religious who spent his life studying ancient scriptures. And when I’m upset, it’s a subject that always comes back, like the ultimate peace: living in a cell with all the material to study :)
        This time, the challenge looks like learning daily life and to discover the character of human beings whom I was next without seeing them…
