Manifesting Generators are 1 of the 5 types in the Human Design System and make up 35% of the population. These people are busy by nature. Often they are multi-taskers and they get bored just doing one thing. The Manifesting Generator or Man-Gen is here to do things and they have a lot of energy to do it!
To be a Manifesting Generator you need two things. First you need a defined the Sacral Center. The Sacral center is the most consistent energy in the System and with a defined Sacral it makes you a Generator. Secondly you need motorized energy that connects through a channel to the throat. There are 4 motor centers in the Human Design System. They are the Sacral, the Root, the Solar Plexus and the Heart/Will centers. If you have one of these that is defined and there is a channel connection(s) from a motor center to the throat you are a Man-Gen.
So what make the Man-Gen so busy? The throat is all about expression of energy. With motorized energy having a direct connection to the throat it can be expressed in many ways, even simultaneously. In addition, Manifesting Generators have a quickness about them. The motorized energy to the throat can also be quick and be initiating like a true Manifestor. So the Man-Gen straddles the line between the Generator, who is here to do, and the Manifestor who is here to spark and initiate. The Man-Gen works best by following a strategy of rapid response. They get something to respond to and respond quickly often in a chain of succession.
Sometimes the Man-Gen is fooled into thinking they are a Manifestor. This can be a trap as the Manifesting Generator will have more success manifesting if they manifest in response to things in their reality because ultimately they are not true Manifestors.
