FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Below is a list of the most frequently asked questions and answers.
WHERE TO START ?
In my experience, the best place to start your discovery of Human Design is an initial reading of your personal diagram, which provides a foundation for working with other aspects of the system such as transits and cycles, partnerships / connection and Much more. The initial reading will give you a solid understanding of your Design and give you a practical and concrete point of reference to navigate your life.
If you are new to Human Design, I recommend that you first get a free drawing from the Design Humain France website here . Then, I suggest you visit the free and French-language media library of the Human Design France school here , where you can gain a better understanding of the system.
The next step is to have your body diagram read by a licensed Human Design professional. This is an important step because it will allow you to deepen and synthesize your Design so that you can begin to live it. To find a Human Design professional, please consult the list of professionals certified by the Human Design France school or the IHDS (International Human Design School) international school. Certified professionals also have the logo below on their website.

I DON'T KNOW MY TIME OF BIRTH, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
It is very important to have an accurate birth time in order to calculate your correct body pattern. Without the exact birth time, accuracy can be limited - yet almost no one has access to their precise birth time. The question is whether you are not sure in a range of 5 minutes or 5 hours for example. The larger the time window, the more likely it is that the constellation of planets will undergo significant changes during this time.
If you are really not sure you have the exact time, I suggest you request a birth certificate from the city or contact the hospital where you were born. Another possibility is rectification by an experienced Vedic astrologer, or a licensed Human Design Analyst can also help.
CAN MY DESIGN CHANGE?
No, your Design is determined by your time and place of birth and that never changes. It stays the same throughout your life. However, the way it expresses itself, the way you experience it, the frequency of your aura, is changing. And it all depends on how you make your decisions. Energy is neutral, but the way it is expressed can be positive or negative. What can heal can also kill. We can be busy working all the time, and doing what brings us satisfaction and fulfillment, or run like crazy, always doing something, initiating, and instead of being satisfied, in peace, in wonder through life one is constantly frustrated, angry, bitter, disappointed.
In short, your Personal Design conveys a holistic picture of the type of person you are. Your Type is determined by the basic themes of your Biological Footprint and remains the same throughout your life, just as you remain female or male. However, your innate potentials and areas of specialization can be expressed in different ways, depending on the type of formative experiences you have had in your life, and mainly depending on the attitude and beliefs you have now. If the innate encoding remains the same throughout your journey, you can change your attitude and evolve in your stage of consciousness. You have a whole range of possibilities as to what the same code actually means.
WHAT IS HUMAN DESIGN?
Human Design is a completely original, mystical and magical tool that reveals the map of your aura. It is a guide that shows you how your unique energy was created to flourish.
It is a unique and layered system, often referred to as the "New Astrology" at the "Intersection of Science and Spirituality" because it incorporates aspects of Chinese I'Ching, Western Astrology, Tree of Kabbalah and the Hindu-Brahman Chakra system with current knowledge in the fields of Physics, Astronomy, Genetics and Biochemistry.
Your body diagram is worked out by taking your date of birth, time and place of birth, which gives you specific information about your life course, your work style, your relationship plan, your energetic experience of the world and, most importantly. , how to create a truly meaningful and authentic life.
WHERE DOES THE HUMAN DESIGN SYSTEM COME FROM?
Human Design was channeled in 1987 by a man named Robert Alan Krakower on the island of Ibiza during a mystical encounter with a "Voice". The entire system was received as a cosmic download over an 8 day period, much to his surprise and shock. Following this experience, he then changed his name to Ra Uru Hu. It turns out that Human Design synthesizes ancient wisdom and quantum science into a logical system for understanding patterns of genetic continuity in life.
IS HUMAN DESIGN A PERSONALITY TEST?
No, Human Design is not a personality test. Your Body Scheme (Design) is fixed, which means it will not change over time (unlike the results of a personality test). However, you might come to understand new aspects of your diagram in different ways over time. While your Design may speak to certain traits of your personality, it also reveals the divine path of your life, exposing the nature of the experiences your soul has come to have on earth.
IS HUMAN DESIGN A THERAPEUTIC METHOD?
Human Design is a method of being able to make decisions based on one's own being and ultimately for living. However, since many dysfunctions and diseases are caused by an inadequate lifestyle, the application of Human Design in personal life can have a therapeutic effect. In addition, this tool is very useful in combination with existing therapeutic methods.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HUMAN DESIGN AND ASTROLOGY?
Although Human Design shares a few commonalities with astrology, it is truly a unique and different system in itself. Both start with the exact date, time and place of birth to create a birth chart (called a Body Diagram in Human Design). Both systems use the positions of the planets and nodes to identify the energies and frequencies that a person is imbued with at the time of birth.
However, the Human Design incorporates an additional set of planetary positions taken 3 months (88 degrees in the wheel) before the moment of birth, which represents the unconscious frequencies that the physical body carries in this incarnation. These two graphics are used and referenced during a consultation with Design Humain. Where astrology tends to use only the positions of the planets at the time of birth, which represents the frequencies to which the mind and personality are most aware and identified.
IS HUMAN DESIGN A SCIENTIFIC METHOD?
Human Design is not a scientific method in the classic sense. But that doesn't mean it's not scientific. Besides, the Human Design system is referred to as the "Science of Differentiation" since each person is considered as a distinct differentiated being. Some aspects of Design can be explored using scientific methods, including the measurable differences between the 4 types, but also many special talents that can be recognized in a bodygraph.
On the other hand, personal application - and this is the most interesting possibility that Human Design has to offer - can only be subjective. You apply it. You observe the consequences. You feel the effects. You come to a judgment. All of this is personal and subjective. In this sense, Human Design can perhaps be compared to meditation. Its value does not lie in the fact that one can possibly measure altered brain waves. Its value lies in the subjective experience and the beneficial effect on the body.
WHAT CAN I LEARN FROM HUMAN DESIGN?
You are an incredible and complex being: you have your own way of perceiving the world, your quirks, but you also have your innate gifts that only you can embody and express. You also have life lessons to learn that have enabled you to catalyze your growth.
Your BodyGraph is a tool that reveals all of these incredible details about your unique magic and so much more. Human Design is an incredibly effective tool that can change the way you approach life if you allow it.

HOW CAN HUMAN DESIGN HELP ME IN MY DAILY LIFE?
Much depends on your current situation and the main uncertainties that dominate your life. But Human Design will guide you to a better life . The moment you really start to make your own decisions, your life aligns with your values; you begin to perceive yourself authentically. Following your strategy and your inner authority means entrusting your life to an authority higher than that of your mind or the minds of others. It can open up possibilities even when everything seems lost forever.
So in summary: Human Design can help you do anything because it helps you to be yourself and to live it. But you can't know in advance how this will turn out, and there are a number of things you may need to correct before you get to the issue that is most worrying you right now.
WHY ARE THERE ONLY 4 TYPES? IT SEEMS TOO SIMPLE
It is in fact the specific characteristic of our aura and the specific strategy of decision making. Each type has a different strategy for optimal "movement" in life. There are countless variations within each type. There are many aspects to each type and each person has a very unique definition. This definition goes far beyond centers, doors or even defined lines. What you see in a body chart is really just a surface. So, although there are only 4 types, the combinations of definitions are almost endless.
IS THE MANIFESTING GENERATOR A 5TH DISTINCT TYPE?
No. The Generator-Manifestor like the Pure generator has by definition the sacral center defined (in red on the bodygraph). Therefore, it has the same signature "satisfaction", the same Non-Self theme "frustration", the same type of "open and enveloping" aura, the same "being available to respond" strategy, the same varieties of interior authority than a Pure Generator.
So if the Generator-Manifestor does something not from a response, but tries to start processes as a manifestor, it will be frustrated just like a pure generator. The reason is that the mechanics of the sacral center must respond to outside influences. If a Generator, including the Generator-Manifestor, initiates a process rather than waiting beforehand (for example, a question or other external stimulus), it will ignore the response, its sacral energy, and therefore its signature. That is to say, he will be dissatisfied, frustrated.
The role of Generator-Manifestors is the same as that of Pure Generators - to create, to create something, to respond to outside influence. The difference is that with Generator Manifestors, it happens much faster and often more powerfully.
I AM A GENERATOR. HOW DO I KNOW IF THERE IS A RESPONSE?
A response can only occur if you are not "proactive" and if you are being solicited by someone or "something" (a situation, for example). You can recognize the response itself either by the force it releases in you (an impulse, a movement, a liveliness going through you) or by the voice of the belly.
HOW TO REPAIR MY OPEN CENTERS?
Open or undefined centers (whites) are areas where we go to school in life. They are not empty, broken or bad. They are so open to outer conditionings that they become the source of your Non-Self behavior, pulling you away from who you are. So you think open centers are sort of "bad" and need to be fixed. But when you live by Your Design, it is through the open centers that you obtain your deepest wisdom.
CAN HUMAN DESIGN HELP ME TO IMPROVE MY RELATIONSHIPS?
Yes. Following your strategy and your authority will help you make the right decisions. Whether it's getting into a relationship with the right partner, or being who you are when you're in a relationship and not falling into the trap of your open centers' "No-self" strategies. Your relations will be more and more harmonious. It can also mean that if you are with a partner who is not suitable for you, the relationship will naturally end. Knowing your partner's conception is also very helpful in understanding each other and honoring each other's individuality. Composition or partnership readings are of great help in this regard.
HUMAN DESIGN TO FIND THE RIGHT PARTNER?
This question is much more complex than you might think. Who is the right partner? Is this the partner you dream of? Is this someone you want to spend the rest of your life with? Is this someone you want to raise kids with? Is this someone you can talk to about anything?
Human Design can help you choose a partner in three ways:
By following your strategy and your inner authority . If a relationship is born on this basis, it will certainly be the right one for you, even if it is only short-lived. (Sometimes, for example, you have to learn something before you are really ready for a relationship).
By reviewing and understanding your partner's Design. It is not a "theoretical decision" as to whether this relationship is the right one - this decision can of course only ever be made by the people involved. But it can be very helpful to recognize what a relationship is actually based on, what qualities are present (and which are not).
By treating your partner in a way that is right for them . Of course, our ideas are also homogeneous in the area of relationships. This includes all the clichés about what is uniquely masculine or uniquely feminine. However, you will almost always treat your partner the wrong way, that is, not based on their individuality. It will lead to anger, frustration, bitterness or disappointment, as you can both try very hard, but the result will never be satisfactory.
