Dating and Profile in Human Design

Share This Post

Dating can be frustrating so it never hurts to explore options when it comes to understanding ourselves and how this information might be helpful in the dating landscape. One aspect of Human Design that plays a significant role in dating dynamics is the concept of “Profile” (or personality).  In this article, I will share how understanding your Human Design Profile can provide valuable insights into your dating preferences, compatibility, and overall approach to relationships.

What is Profile in Human Design? 

  • In Human Design, the personality or “profile” is represented as a 2-number combination (e.g., 1/4, 3/5, or 6/2) and can be seen as your archetype for life. It is also the aspect of your chart that speaks to your social life – how you see yourself and how others see or experience you when you are out in the world.
  • There are 12 different Profiles in the Human Design System. See “Related Articles” below for the full list.

How to Find Your Profile?

  • Go to myhumandesign.com and go to “Get Your Chart”.
  • Input your birth details including birth day, birth time, and birth location.
    • NOTE – Information in the bodygraph chart is VERY sensitive to birth time so it is important to have an accurate birth time if possible.
  • When you get your chart you will see your profile numbers on the right-hand side of the page. It will be a two-number combination such as 6/2 or 4/1.

Understanding Your Profile
