Manifesting Generators: Nothing Moves Fast Enough for Them
There’s a good chance you either ARE one or have a RELATIONSHIP WITH a Manifesting Generator somewhere in your life–they are approximately 33% of the world’s population. Like Generators, they have sustainable energy and constitute a significant part of the world’s work force.
While they share many characteristics with Generators, and some practitioners refer to the two as one Type, here we will look specifically at only the pure Manifesting Generator (your Human Design chart will show “Manifesting Generator” as your Type).
Manifesting Generators have two primary focuses in life: work and family/mating, so they are usually immersed in relationships all their lives.
Unlike the Generator:
- Manifesting Generators have a Motor Center to the Throat so can more easily manifest ideas into action, though like the Generator they do need to check in with their Sacral Response before taking action.
- Manifesting Generators are here to find fastest way through things and may skip steps while getting things “done.” They may need to go back and fix what they skipped if it was important.
- Manifesting Generators are the busiest Type and like to have multiple balls in the air.
- Nothing seems to move fast enough for many Manifesting Generators.
- The authentic energy of Manifesting Generators may be VERY intense; they are often dynamic and manifest projects and outcomes with a productive burst of energy that keeps on going. They eventually run out of steam, but watch out once they’ve recharged themselves!
They are born to “respond” to everything around them, which they do quite naturally. But often those responses happen so fast that the Manifesting Generator is not consciously aware of them.
Human Design shows Manifesting Generators that they have an amazing internal guidance system—their Sacral Energy Center. It is the red square on the Chart, and only Generators and Manifesting Generators have it. All other Types have a white (“Open”) Sacral Center. This guidance system helps them in all decisions, especially their relationships.

Human Design gives us deeply insightful knowledge about the nature of WHO we are and HOW we behave as human beings.
Your personal Human Design chart (you can get your free Human Design chart here) helps you understand the energy dynamics and personality characteristics of YOU.
Human Design also helps you understand the other people around you and the nature of YOUR relationship with them.
This makes possible the achievement of supportive, fulfilling,
and constructive relationships in every area of your life.
And in every relationship in your life!
Wouldn’t THAT be something!
This series of articles about “Human Design TYPES in Relationships” will help you move forward along this most noble and worthy path.
Today’s article explores how the MANIFESTING GENERATOR TYPE interacts with OTHER TYPES.
Quick Refresher on Human Design TYPES
There are five TYPES of people in Human Design. Type is determined by which Energy Centers (geometrical shapes on your Human Design Chart) are colored in and how they are connected to each other. In other words, your Type reflects your personal energy configuration. Type is usually indicated in writing on a Chart.
Each TYPE has a Role to play in life and has a particular decision-making and action-taking Strategy that is the best and most correct way for that TYPE to operate in life.
Here is a very brief description of the TYPES and their Roles and Strategies:
Manifestor – approximately 8% of the population
Role: to initiate action from ideas
Strategy: inform everyone in your “impact field” before you take action

Generator – approximately 37% of the population
Role: to find the right work and the right partner in life
Strategy: wait to respond with your Sacral energy before you take action

Manifesting Generator – approximately 33% of the population
Role: to find the right work and the right partner in life (and to find the fastest way to do things)
Strategy: wait to respond with your Sacral energy then inform everyone in your “impact field” before you take action

Projector – approximately 21% of the population
Role: to manage, guide and direct the energies of others
Strategy: wait to be invited into life’s big decisions (love, marriage, career, where you live), and wait to be asked or recognized before sharing your wisdom

Reflector – less than 1% of the population
Role: to reflect the health of our communities back to us
Strategy: wait 29 days (full lunar cycle) for clarity before you take action

The MANIFESTING GENERATOR in Relationships
Manifesting Generators who use their inherent energy correctly and follow the inner guidance of their Sacral response are a dynamic and powerful force that benefits the world… and are magnificent to watch in action!
When their Sacral response had guided them to the “right” work for them, they have nearly inexhaustible energy to do that work and get it done FAST!
Because of their sustainable work force and life force energy, they tend to be steady partners in relationships although their specific personality characteristics will be affected by the many other energies in their Human Design Chart.
There are times, though, that you may feel left out of the Manifesting Generator’s world.
This is because:
– They are in their creative “groove” and don’t like to be interrupted
– They don’t “need” other people the way some Types do
– They like to get things done… FAST
– They have sustainable energy… they keep going and going and going
– They may forget to inform the people around them of their actions BEFORE taking them.
They are energizer bunnies who can hold down a job, raise a family, get involved in the PTA or other activities, maybe do volunteer work, stay physically active, and pursue various interests. Not all Manifesting Generators do all of these things… but they could!
Some famous Manifesting Generators are: Frederic Chopin, Marie Curie, Hillary Clinton, Clint Eastwood, Sigmund Freud, Mahatma Gandhi, Steffi Graf, Marie Antoinette, Mikhail Gorbachev, Jimi Hendrix, Pope John Paul II, Janis Joplin, Friedrich Nietzsche, Richard Nixon, Yoko Ono, Prince, Jacqueline Onassis, Martin Luther King, Vincent Van Gogh.
If You ARE a MANIFESTING GENERATOR . . .
Your brain will often work hard to figure out the right answers for you, but that is NOT where YOU want to be making your decisions and choices. That’s what your Sacral responses are for.
If you’re not waiting for life to “come to you” and then responding to it (so you know if you should pursue that thing or not), then you won’t know what is truly “right” for you to apply your considerable energy and competence to.
It’s likely that you’ve been rushing off in a lot of scattered directions until now, without waiting to respond. Problem is… that’s just not correct for you. Hence, many “wrong” directions, accompanied by frustration, anger, and impatience.
Sadly, closest relationships often bear the brunt of those reactions. When you wait for and follow your inner guidance, you’ll have less frustration spilling over onto others. And recognizing that the frustration and anger you feel is just energy can also help you minimize its impact on others.
However, frustration IS part of your personal learning curve, so you won’t be avoiding it entirely. It takes courage to wait for, trust, and follow your Sacral Response… but everything in your life (including relationships) will benefit when you do.
You’ll be more effective in your relationships when you work at being as respectful of others as you can, watch out for power struggles, and learn to bend a little. Also, remember to INFORM those who will be impacted by your actions BEFORE you take those actions.
Don’t worry about skipping steps, moving fast, and multi-tasking… you are designed for these! Don’t let anyone try to slow you down.
You also need to be active enough during your day to be physically tired when you go to bed. It’s as if you wake up each morning with a full tank of gas, and you need to use it all before you sleep. Then you wake up with a new full tank the next day and do it all again. If you’re not sleeping well, try getting more physical activity. This is especially true for Manifesting Generator children, many of whom are incorrectly diagnosed with ADD or ADHD.
If You LOVE a MANIFESTING GENERATOR . . .
If you are not a Manifesting Generator but are in a relationship with one, follow these guidelines:
-Accept that they move fast, fast, fast, and may leave you behind at times. Don’t try to keep up–you will wear down and burn out. Once this energy difference in your relationship is truly understood and respected, you’ll both be happier. Most of all, enjoy the ride!
-Understand that it is correct for them to wait for their inner guidance before they take action.
-Allow the Manifesting Generator the time to wait for things to respond to, and the freedom to honor and follow their responses… even if their responses “appear” to not be logical.
-The most respectful—and helpful—way that you can interact with a Manifesting Generator is to ask them Yes/No questions. This allows them a clear opportunity for their Sacral Center to respond and give them guidance.
–Don’t take their frustration/anger/impatience personally. Recognize that it’s part of their process, and when you support them in being true to their Manifesting Generator nature you’ll help them minimize all of that.
