Type in Human Design is the Role you play in the Story of Life. Your Type & your Inner Authority, are determined by the “definition” in your HD Bodygraph (your birth info chart). Each Type has a natural Strategy for how to interact with life.
In traditional Human Design, there are 4 Types: Manifestor, Generator (sub-type Manifesting Generator), Projector, Reflector. In Quantum Human Design, Karen Curry Parker separates the Generator Types into 2 groups for a total of 5 Types. The new QHD names for the 5 Types: Initiator, Alchemist, Time Bender, Orchestrator, Calibrator.
Once you learn your Type, start by experimenting with your Strategy & Authority for 3-6 months so you get a sense of how it improves your decision-making process – away from mental conditioning of “shoulds” toward activities that are in alignment with your heart, soul & your higher potential.
