The Human Design Profiles are sorta like personality types. Our profile is about how we show up in the world but also how we see or experience ourselves internally.

Human Design Profiles

The 12 Personality (Profile) Archetypes

Personality Archetype

  • 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.
  • Every individual has a profile archetype and there is not necessarily anything the we need to do about it.

Why is profile important?

  • Understanding our archetype is another opportunity Human Design gives us to accept ourselves and remove any conditioning we may have had against our archetype. These are things we are doing naturally and if we can embrace it, we can live in the flow of it.
  • This archetype is something we may want to celebrate a bit more.

The Profile 2 number combinations

  • Profile – 1st number
    • The description of this number will likely resonate with the individual more because it is considered to be the more conscious number.
    • This number describes the life of the individual (from their point of view), their internal life and how the see themselves.
  • Profile – 2nd number
    • The description of this number is likely less familiar or may not be able to see as well.
    • This number describes how others see the individual from the outside.
  • Where are the profile / personality numbers located in a chart?
    • Profile numbers are the decimal place numbers after both the personality (Right) and Design (Left) sun gates. They are put together in that order.
