Manifestor Type – you can rightfully call them representatives of the Type of Power. They have the initiating ability of humanity. While others must wait for something or someone before taking action, They are able to simply take the bull by the horns and independently navigate life. Without asking anyone, they always put their opinion first. And there is no worse fate for the Manifestor than obeying someone, even if it would be potentially useful.
Being naturally endowed with incredible self-sufficiency, the Manifestor can be quite difficult to fit into the framework of society. They do not like to be held back – Manifestors respond with anger to any attempt to control, ready at any moment to “attack” the offender.
Sometimes Manifestors in their egocentrism go so far as to simply tell about their plans and it means for them to acknowledge their weakness. It is for this reason that most representatives of the “Manifestor” Type live most of their lives under the influence of the False Self. Unable to pacify their pride, they initiate conflicts everywhere and everywhere, provoking others and dispersing themselves.
For other Types, the Strategy is focused on a better understanding of themselves. Manifestors have a different situation. The strategy of this Type is aimed at minimizing the consequences of its own hot temper, reducing the incidence of key negative emotion – anger. Only with the correct application of its own Strategy, the Manifestor can become a “diplomatic” person without snapping every now and then.
The essence of this type of strategy is to inform others before taking action. As mentioned earlier, this Type is very independent, and used to solve any problems on its own. Without asking permission from anyone, without asking anyone, without reporting to anyone. The Manifestor considers such a path to be truly correct. But in fact, it will only cause reflex resistance from those people who are next to him.
Imagine a child who, without asking, decided to take his father’s instruments to play. Of course, the father will not like this approach. The point is not the tools, but the fact that they were taken without asking. Subsequently, the father will complain to his Manifestor child for this kind of behavior. Similar habits are always manifested in the nature of the Manifestor, whether it be a child or an adult.
Getting older, they begin to work, start a family, but do not change their nature. At work, they can independently initiate something without telling their superiors about it. For example, changing an approved plan or even quitting suddenly without giving reasons. In families, they may not behave very delicately, now and then disappearing without warning. Or, say, they may make purchases about which they would not report to their partner.
In the end, all the actions of the Manifestor will somehow affect those who are next to him. And if he does not warn in advance of what was planned, then they will try to either stop him or “punish” him for what he has done. That is, in one form or another, the Manifestor will meet with resistance.
But if the Manifestor accustoms himself first to inform those who may be affected by the consequences of his decision, then he minimizes resistance. To inform – does not mean asking permission. This in no way infringes on the self-sufficiency of the Manifestor. After all, often, even informing in advance, he will hear something like:
“I still can’t make you change your mind, right?”
And if no one will try to stop him, is it really so difficult to inform in advance about the planned act? By warning / informing the people around, the Manifestor gets rid of what could become the foundation for resistance. Then they will be less likely to try to stop or dissuade him, then he will not need to apply “sanctions” for what he has done. To inform is a very sober and adult approach, which you must learn to apply to every Manifestor in your life.
Having plunged deeper into the study of your Design, you will learn other unique features of your character. This will help you build more harmonious relationships with other people based on a deep understanding of your own nature. After all, if you recognize yourself, then not one of your reactions, not a single emotion that arises within you, will cause surprise. You can always be aware of your own actions, and other people will not be able to tip your inner balance.
Internal Authority is that organ in the human body that needs to be trusted when making a decision. That is, stop instructing the Mind to solve this problem and trust the opinion of the wisdom of its form (body). In this context, Inner Authority is the source in the body from which signals will come from, with the help of which you will come to the right choice for yourself in this or that important issue.
For people with an Ego-Manifested Authority, it is important to listen to what they say, not the voice of the Mind. Often, especially when we are under the influence of strong emotions, we can say things that we did not even think about. And for this type of authority – this is the only true option. That is, to say automatically, especially not thinking about your own words, but simply saying what you want. This type of Authority is directly connected with the throat and organs of speech, and as soon as the words fall from lips, bypassing the Mind – your true opinion sounds.
Splenic Manifestor (Spontaneous)
A Splenic Authority is associated with the Spleen Center of Awareness. For people with this type of Authority, it is important to listen to the signals that their body gives them at the moment of decision-making. Someone may experience a sudden heaviness in the abdomen, others may have sharp twitching in their hands, others may have eye twitching, and others may even have a “bad taste in their mouth” feeling. Such signals arise as a response to some event, conversation or proposal from another person. So it is important to notice these reactions in time and learn to interpret them correctly.
For people with an Emotional Authority, it is important not to make any decisions when they are affected by emotions. That is, you need to wait until the emotions subside and the Mind becomes sober again before deciding something. Many people often act in life, relying on their condition at one time or another. As a result, the emotional wave subsides, and the consequences of the decision made remain. And more often than not, the consequences of emotional decisions do not bode well.
Manifestor’s False Self – Anger
The False Self of this Type is expressed in the form of feelings of anger. From birth, accustomed to relying on himself, the Manifestor often encounters attempts at control in life. It all starts from childhood, when parents try to suppress the excessive initiative of their child by hook or by crook. It is not even a matter of upbringing – it is very difficult for adults to accept that their child is trying to undermine their authority, ignores their words, and does not ask permission. Therefore, the parents of Manifestors may punish their children, which negatively affects their development as individuals.
There are two possible scenarios. Much depends on the overall picture of the features of a personal Bodygraph. All the same, knowing your Type is the most basic level of immersion in the topic of Human Design. There are many more variables in Bodygraph, so everything may not be so ambiguous.
The first option is a feeling of anger suppressed within. When a child accustomed to control is growing up, he may become a feeble-minded person. Instead of following the nature of the initiator, he simply “float downstream”. He gets used to his lack of will, until one day the outburst of anger serves as a signal that something has been hidden inside him that he has long forgotten about.
Will he be able to reconfigure himself with his nature again – another question depends on how much this person will experiment with the information from his Bodygraph. But one thing is certain: constantly suppressing anger inside yourself, indulging all the requirements of parents is not a good idea, which comes around in adulthood.
The second scenario, when the young Manifestor is growing up and anger towards any control attempts is so rooted in him that he becomes literally obsessed. Then he breaks off ties with everyone who could at least somehow influence him, if only not to fall under control again. Such Manifestors turn into embittered loners who do not allow anyone to approach their personal space.
But there is nothing wrong with the False Self a priori. This is just an indication that a Manifestor is living ignoring his Strategy and Authority. All he needs is to understand and accept his nature, recognize the Manifestor in himself. Then it will be much easier for him to get rid of anger and inform others, saving himself from reasons for the negative emotions of the False Self.
The Manifestor of Human Design is the Type most immune to the influence of others. This is due primarily to its closed and repulsive Aura, protecting it like a shell. Aura is the energy field surrounding every person on Earth. When two contact each other, they interact with each other at the Aura level, and not just through words and non-verbal contact. And the way we perceive another person, in many respects depends on his Type and character of Aura.
The Manifestor’s design is such that it has a very, so to speak, “aggressive” Aura. It keeps others around at some distance, not allowing to get too close. This is a protective mechanism of the Manifestor, thanks to which it is almost impossible to influence. For the same reason, representatives of this Type can often be mistaken for unsociable people. It is very difficult to approach them, which becomes the reason for the occurrence of gossip about their egocentricity.
At the same time, the closed Aura causes very bad empathy among Manifestors. They simply cannot understand why the people around do this and not otherwise. Rather, they can understand it, but only at the level of Mind. But to imagine other people’s feelings is often an unaffordable luxury for Manifestors. Therefore, most of the Manifestors are quite rude and straightforward people who speak the truth in person.
Following his Strategy, the Manifestor is able to reduce the distance between himself and another person, as if letting him or her in. Informing makes it clear to others that, despite his behavior, the Manifestor appreciates or at least respects the opinions of others whom he cares for. This alone is enough to significantly reduce resistance in the life of this Type.

Matter of life
Being the only initiating Type, the Manifestor would be very useful to learn something about his nature. For proper living, a representative of this Type must realize that he has a huge impact on the people around him. Remaining always on his way, he nonetheless constantly attracts the attention of others. Other people look at the Manifestor and equal to him, envy and hate him. And all this happens even without his knowledge. And it is not surprising that in this case the Manifestor has many ill-wishers in all spheres of life.
The Manifestor’s question reads: “Who am I influencing?” This literally means that the Manifestor must carefully monitor the environment and its own behavior in it. Due to their straightforwardness, multiplied by egocentrism, representatives of this Type may provoke negative emotions in others – from resentment to outright hatred. After all, the Manifestors do not take into account the opinions of others, and that’s why can not realize why other people overreact to their words.
Therefore, a correct Manifestor is the one that always keeps in mind its uniqueness. Realizing his influence, he has a chance to become a little more sensitive to others. Or, at least, it will create the appearance of such a person that will already be more than enough.
Signature is a feeling that indicates that the Type is correctly living its program. Since we are talking about the Manifestor, then in his case this feeling will be peace. When he applies the knowledge of Strategy and Authority in his life, when he informs others before taking action, then they will not try to stop him or somehow punish him for what he has done. Then they will leave him to himself and nobody will be in his way.
Peace is what every Manifestor needs. This Type simply can not stand when other people try to interfere in his affairs. And for him there is nothing better than the opportunity to independently engage in his tasks, without being distracted by anyone. Information helps the Manifestor prevent anger from occurring by pre-empting any kind of conflict. After all, there is no point in fighting anger – it will be much more effective and not prevent it from arising at all. Peace here is the antithesis of anger, as an indicator that the Manifestor competently follows his Strategy.
Key features of the nature of each Type allow you to recreate a picture of how the relationship between them will develop. A lot depends on other aspects of Human Design, but even a Type alone can tell a lot about what representatives of different Types will encounter in contact with each other.
It can be very difficult for two Manifestors to match each other. This is a relationship in which everyone pulls a blanket over himself, and gets angry when one does not agree with the opinion of the other. Sometimes they can live together for many years without even understanding the reasons why they remain with each other. But on the other hand, assuming their own self-sufficiency, not one of them will try to “forcefully” enter another’s personal space. Both will stand the distance, not approaching, but at the same time and not moving far.
Such relationships can be called “effective” from a practical point of view. Both partners will go about their business, both will be able to successfully provide for their families. But to achieve real intimacy in such a union will be difficult. Even after living side by side for many years, the two Manifestors may not come to an understanding without revealing the true warmth of the relationship. And if you look at such a union from the outside, you might get the impression that this is just a marriage of convenience.
But of course, this is only a superficial opinion. The true value of the relationship will only be understood by the Manifestors themselves. This Type is not one of those who chase the word “love”, who cannot live without ostentatious warmth and care. The love of two representatives of this Type lies much deeper than words, and the fact that they continue to remain with each other even despite all the conflicts speaks most eloquently of their strong connection.
Manifestor + Generator
Building a relationship of a Manisfestor with a Generator can be very easy. The former a priori “stakes” for himself a leadership position, making the most important decisions in the family. In principle, most Generators are not against such a turn of events. They will “obey” Manifestors, understanding that everything that they are “ordered” is done for the common good.
Both of these types have huge energy reserves, so their relationship will be quite active. But a Generator may at times feel unloved coupled with a Manifestor. The thing is in the closed aura of the latter – they have not the best empathy, and they are not used to sharing their feelings with others. For Manifestors, this connection has nothing to do with words, so they do not go all out once again.
In the relationship of these two Types, one must act as the initiator. Do you understand who this is? And you also need to understand that the Generator will be pleased to receive at least some signs of attention, a demonstration of love. Therefore, if a Manifestor wants to build a strong relationship with a Generator, he will have to accustom himself at least sometimes to show ostentatious love – otherwise he simply may not be understood.
Manifestor + Projector
A relationship with a Projector is perhaps the best option. The projector has a very focused aura that is aimed at one person. Even in ordinary communication, the Projector is able to recognize its interlocutor at a level at which the person himself does not know himself. Therefore, the Manifestor will not have to constantly make excuses and step over himself. The projector will even understand why his partner is acting in a certain way, respecting his self-sufficient nature.
It is also important to mention that the Projector by nature is a kind of “mentor” for others. It easily identifies other people’s strengths and weaknesses, and can correctly guide a person on the right path. Therefore, he will “use” energy and the opportunity to initiate his partner to help him achieve the goals that he will set for himself.
The Manifestor’s only difficulty in connection with the Projector will be that the former is not used to listening to other people’s words. Therefore, in many respects, the success of the relationship will consist of the ability of the Projector to correctly present its opinion. It all depends on trust – whether a Manifestor can at least slightly open his heart to a Projector, or not. Just knowing Types will not be enough to predict the relationship between two people. Therefore, it is very important to consider the presence and combinations of other elements in the partners’ charts. Only in this way the true values of your union and the ways of its development will be available.
Manifestor + Reflector
It can be quite difficult for him and a Reflector to build a relationship with each other. The Reflector is a Type that is capable of “imitating” those who are nearby. He has a reflective aura that adjusts to someone else’s frequency, copying it. Therefore, those people who closely communicate with the Reflector can see reflections of themselves in it – not only their strengths, but also their weaknesses. And for the Manifestor, the ability to see your flaws through another person can be an extremely difficult challenge.
The Manifestor, as a rule, gets used to thinking of himself as he wants, completely ignoring other people’s opinions. Accordingly, he prefers to “hide” his drawbacks, concentrating only on the merits. But in relations with a Reflector, everything that he so carefully hid will come out, and will always be in front of his eyes. All selfishness, all reluctance to devote to one’s plans – all this will return to a Manifestor a hundredfold. Therefore, possessing an already rather aggressive disposition, he may take it out on the Reflector, although he seems to have done nothing wrong.
But on the other hand, if a Manifestor is initially determined to maintain relations with a particular Reflector, then their union can be very productive. The Manifestor will be able to see its negative features from outside and, if desired, change them. The Reflector, possessing an amazing gift to “read” other people, will help his partner, the Manifestor, change. But, of course, if only the latter is really set for favorable changes.
In terms of work and money, this type of person rarely has difficulty. With an unsurpassed ability to initiate, most often this type is faster than others moving up the career ladder. Manifestors are not afraid to make new commitments if it brings them profit. In terms of work, there are no restrictions for them – they can do anything if they want. Generators should choose something to their liking, Projectors depend on other people, Reflectors are not at all interested in any kind of work. And only Manifestors can choose for themselves any occupation, if only it would be profitable or, at least, interesting.
The main condition for this Type is not to forget about its initiating nature. Often, due to the influence of the False Self, this Type begins to simply go with the flow, without taking active action. And if for the same Generators this is a reasonable approach, then the Manifestor can never achieve anything, leaving everything to the will of fate. This Type must always manage his own life, making his own way.
Baby Manifestor, childhood
Manifestor from childhood experience difficulties in connection with their initiating nature. As stated in the False Self section, parents often try to limit the actions of their Manifestor children by forbidding them to behave as they want it or punishing them. In the end, this only leads to increased resistance and spoils family relations.
For the correct and harmonious upbringing of a Manifestor, he needs a lot of free space. That is, parents should demonstrate their authority only in extreme cases, when the young Manifestor goes too far in his initiatives. Otherwise, on the contrary, freedom should be given to him.
So, from childhood he will be able to feel and get used to his independence, learn to be responsible for his actions. And then, when he gets older, it will not be a problem for him to take initiative in his affairs being afraid of excessive control from other people.

I’m a manifestor, and have an open solar plexus center (and head and ajna and G center and root) and while I found much of what you had to say accurate, I can’t help but feel a bit defensive about your repeated claim that manifestors struggle to empathize with others. That’s simply untrue. That may be others perceptions, and I can definitely see why they’d choose to simplify their understanding of manifestors with such a claim, but I can definitely say I personally am VERY empathetic, emotionally and physically (as in seeing others get hurt is very hard for me to stomach). I know people have thought this about me before (due to the high awareness of others beliefs and feelings I’ve always had). The major difference I’ve noticed is that while those assumptions have always hurt my feelings, I can let them exist and carry on. Being a manifestor is a lifetime of learning to persist in the face of rejection. Since learning about HD I at least now understand that I don’t need to internalize it anymore as my own unknown failures. Now I know that a combination of my closed aura and learned behavioral patterns of avoidance from pending resistance are the teal culprits.
I won’t say I don’t find people exhausting and overwhelming much of the time, because I do. But that’s hardly a justification for claiming I lack empathy.
Thank you for this! I’m also a manifestor and felt the suggestion of a lack of empathy was a bit off as well. I actually prefer to be alone because I become extremely overwhelmed by how much I am observing in others behavior or body language when in groups. I’m always extremely conscious around how others are feeling. Although I can say that in close relationships I tend to do my own thing and expect it to not be an issue which has certainly caused them but I usually always come around in understanding the others point of view. So I can agree in that regard but when it comes to day to day connecting with people, I feel it all.
This description made me sad at the profound lack of empathy the author has with the Manifestations. As a Manifestor, I wouldn’t want to do a reading with someone who seems to be so tolerant of me, someone who thinks I’m powerful, selfish, and provocative. There’s a “it wouldn’t cost anything” tone to selfish Manifestors to share with others rather than going off on their projects. Whoever wrote this doesn’t know what it’s like to have to answer tough questions like “why? what’s the purpose? what’s it for?” before you even know what you want to do, and with that feeling deeply discouraged by everyone around you before you can start. The author does not seem to take into account that the Manifestor’s aura generates resistance just by existing, not to being “rude”. Reporting to anyone – which makes us so bad in terms of strategy – is sometimes our only way of trying to silence the outside noise a little so we can hear your own strategy.
