Understanding Manifestors in Human Design
Human Design Manifestors make up about 8-9% of the human population and are known for their powerful energy. They are here to initiate, being naturally innovative and future oriented. The Human Design Manifestor name is derived from their ability to manifest freely and correctly without assistance from the outside.
What is a Human Design Manifestor?
The Manisfestor is designed to impact the world and others. They are often considered the Maverick or lone warrior among the Human Design types. Manifestors hate being told what to do and are here to forge their own way. Rules are not their friends as they learned when they were young. The Manifestor’s aura is very powerful and repelling, and they are generally not inclusive people and team players. This can often be perceived as arrogance and egotism. Manifestors thrive with freedom and autonomy. Among the most famous Human Design Manifestors are Maya Angelou, Johnny Depp, Susan Sarandon, Al Gore, Jennifer Anniston, Monica Bellucci, Tom Cruise, and Jerry Seinfeld.
Understanding the Manifestor Strategy
Manifestors lead naturally with their forward momentum and powerful presence. They should not be concerned with asking permission or getting buy-in from others. Their ideal strategy, however, is to inform others before they act, specifically those to be directly impacted by the actions. The informing part should be structured along the lines of “I am just letting you know”; it should not be phrased as an ask but rather statement of fact regarding what the Manifestor plans on doing next. This way instead of inspiring resentment, Manifestors will find themselves respected.
Common Challenges for Manifestors
Manifestors hate anyone telling them what to do or how to do it. They need as much freedom as possible. Too much unnecessary structure will cripple their creativity. An overly controlled, micro-managed environment is not for them, and they can often be perceived as angry.
Manifestors have access to incredible power, which when turned on suddenly can be frightening to other people. Alternatively, some Manifestors become people pleasers to avoid confrontations. Neither one is healthy for the Human Design Manifestor.
Living as a Manifestor
A Manifestor must always refer to their inner Authority before acting to avoid resistance and suspicion from other people. The best strategy for the Manifestor is to inform whoever they will impact. That does not imply making themselves smaller in order to make others comfortable, it simply means they are letting others know what actions they plan on taking next. Any people-pleasing should be let go. The Human Design Manifestor is here to get things started and lead the way, maintaining a delicate balance between initiating and doing the work, typically completed by others.
Manifestors in Relationships
Human Design Manifestors can initiate great projects and endeavors but will rarely see them through. The baton is usually passed down to Generators who have consistent power. Manifestors need to learn how to delegate and partner with others who love the follow-up and get the work done till the end.
Related to the above, Manifestors can be very spontaneous and inconsistent with bursts of energy that then require rest and space for inspiration. Simply stated Manifestors need alone time to repair and replenish their energetic aura.
Manifestors often come across as blunt and rude because of their powerful aura. The natural resistance they encounter in interactions and social situations with others tends to inflame anger and cause bitterness, both of which can easily be avoided if they follow their strategy of informing. This is also likely to be extremely valuable for Manifestors throughout their careers.
Manifestors Life Purpose
Since the beginning of mankind Manifestors were the rulers, the lawmakers and the decision-makers. As previously mentioned, they can explode with a burst of energy from a state of standstill in a split second! But in today’s world absolute rulers are not welcome. So how do Manifestors fit in today’s society and continue to interact with other types?
Manifestors are the initiators of the world and get new things started. Without the initial force and power that Manifestors bring many projects would never get launched in the first place. Manifestors are still the only Human Design type designed to freely initiate with no outside support or push. Out of the blue, often unexpectedly Manifestors see something and bring it to life. This is why they have a part to play in the world!
