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.
  • 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. 

5/2 Profile – The 2 Number Combination in your Human Design chart

5 = the Savior, Messenger or Heretic

  • The theme of the “5” aspect is making things universal, forecasting, “the General”

2 = the Natural, Guru or Hermit 

  • The themes of the “2” aspect is all about natural gifts, inherent knowledge and self-absorption.

Unaware of their genius 

  • There is a harmony in the 5/2 in that they are often BOTH outgoing and genius in a special way. They are likely aware that they can be outgoing but may not always see the genius in themselves that others see.
  • Because the 5/2 has trouble seeing their own genius, they may spend a lot of time questioning their abilities, talents and gifts.  If they can learn to follow their strategy and authority it will help them know when they have received the correct calls to follow-through on.

Aware of the expectations others place on them 

  • For the 5/2, it is especially important to get away from the expectations that others may be projecting onto them. Other people see them as someone who can help them out of a jam.
  • And it can be hard for them if they fail to meet those expectations because it will shake their confidence and cause them to question their true talents and gifts.  When this happens, they may just want to give up and be a hermit.
  • It is common for the 5/2 to prefer remaining detached and uninvolved because they are often uncertain of being able to live up to the expectations of others. 
  • They have to pay attention to the energy they have when they show up in the world as they naturally create separation

Recognizing and embracing their gifts is key

  • It is important that the 5/2 begins to recognize their own talents and gifts. They are the one who has to discover their own genius and put it out there themselves (energetically speaking).
  • 5/2’s also needs time alone so they can stay healthy and nurture their natural gifts and talents.

Pressure from others is not ideal 

  • In relationship to other people, 5/2’s should not be pressured in any way. Those around them should be patient and just wait until they see themselves in their particular situation or predicament so they can call on their inherent genius to solve the situation.
