Generator Signature: Satisfaction not Recognition?

Several weeks ago I was reminded me that my only concern as a Generator is whether I’m “satisfied” or not. I was reminded of this when I sheepishly complained about not getting recognition for my efforts. I can’t even remember what I was grousing about at that moment in time but it doesn’t matter.

Even as I write this my mind is confused. “What do you mean that being ‘recognized’ is none of my concern?” To only be here for my personal satisfaction (the Generator “true self” signature), seems like the most selfish, useless reason for existing…to my mind! Continue reading

Response is Specific

A couple of months ago, after I finished crocheting a poncho for myself, a friend asked me if I would make one for her. She rarely asks for anything and I was happy to do it. She gave me the yarn and I got started. Around this time, she’d also said something about writing up and selling the pattern for the poncho in the store where she works. I thought, “OK,” but it was not really that important to me and I did not commit one way or the other.

About a week after I’d started working on it, I got a weird feeling, that she asked me to make it for her but she really wanted me to make it for the store to go with my pattern. Notice, I opened by saying that she rarely asks for things, so missing that cue is on me. Continue reading

Emotional Authority | No Truth in the Now

 In a world where get-it-done now is the norm, I can only imagine what Emotionally defined humans (Generator, Projectors or Manifestors) must contend with when they first decide to experiment with “waiting through their wave” for clarity. However, I have witnessed the positive difference it can make when emotional beings give themselves the time they need to feel their way through a decision. Continue reading

Experimenting with Waiting | In the Beginning

experimenting with waiting - human designI was a relatively successful business coach when I learned about my Design. It was suggested to me that I start very simply, to practice “waiting” in traffic when driving my car, and in grocery store lines. OK, that could be fun, but what about my business? In business, we are taught that it’s up to us to make things happen, and so I was curious about how this would work in real life.

I started to experiment with “waiting” at networking events. I already had a policy to only attend events that I was drawn to. I added one more ingredient. Continue reading

Is the Projector Here to Guide the Generator?

Generator Projector relationshipThis is one of the generalizations about Type relationships in the Human Design system. I took it at face value when I first read this but I’m not sure this is absolutely correct. It takes a lot to hold this up, and not all of it healthy. It suggests that:

  • The Generator’s response mechanism, their sacral response, is not sufficient as a guide for their life.
  • The Emotional Generator’s emotional guidance can’t be trusted.
  • The Projector exists FOR the Generator.
  • It’s a lopsided, uni-directional relationship
