What is “Profile” in Human Design?

  • In Human Design, the personality or “profile” is represented as a 2-number combination (e.g., 3/5) and can be seen as an archetype for life.
  • A profile is “the costume” we wear
  • Our profile breaks down the way others see you, the way you see yourself, your path to wisdom, the way you interact with others, and the way you show up in life.

4/1 Profile in Human Design 

A very unique profile 

  • This is a unique personality profile representing about 2/% of the world
  • This profile is considered a “fixed fate”. They will fulfill their karmic role by finding the balance between creating opportunities within their network and taking time to investigate the way life works.
  • The Personality Sun Gate is very important for a 4/1. Whenever they feel a lack of passion they should reflect on the energies of this gate in their chart.

Here to study and learn 

  • 4/1’s are here to study, learn, and establish a solid foundation in an area that fascinates them and then influence others with their knowledge base. 
  • It is through investigating this specialty that they transform their insecurity into an authority on a subject. 
  • Once they are established as an authority on a subject they will then go out and become an influential expert in their field.

Sharing the work they have mastered is key 

  • 4/1’s do best sharing the information they have mastered with people in their network, through people they have been friendly with. 
  • They are not designed to influence strangers. For example, if a 4/1 is asked to present it is advisable for them to show up early to network before the event or host a social mixer with the audience the evening before. 

Not here to adapt their personality 

  • It is very important for them to remain exactly who they are and not change for anyone else. If they can do this they will stay on track in life. 
  • For them to feel a sense of balance and health – others will need to adapt to the 4/1. They are not here to adapt to others.

Transparency in relationships is very important 

  • Honesty and transparency, especially in relationships, are very important for 4/1’s.
  • 4/1s are often fascinated by life and people. They are often interested in human behavior, psychology, sociology, different cultures, etc.
  • 4/1’s often see things in polarity (right vs. wrong/good vs. bad) and that’s good for them but they should keep in mind that others may not see things that way.
