Manifesting Generators – Why So Busy?

Posted on: May 7, 2010 by: peter

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.

Here are some charts of Manifesting Generators. Notice the different pathways that the energy can get from a motor center to the Throat.
