There are twelve different profiles in the Human Design system. We derive profile from the lines of the gates in your conscious and unconscious Sun sign. The Sun sign is the first sign on a chart under the "Design" and "Personality" columns. Profiles tell you about major life themes that you will encounter, and they illustrate another way in which your personality interacts with the world. Everyone comes into the world with a specific profile and purpose. Knowing your profile can help you see some of the themes that you will encounter as you move toward fulfilling your purpose.
Each number in a profile has a specific meaning. The first number in your profile is an element of your personality that you will be consciously aware of. The second number in the profile may be unconscious and more hidden from you.
The twelve different profiles are derived from the six possible lines of a gate. Each of these six lines represents a different archetype or style of behavior. Your profile can be thought of as an explanation of your conscious and unconscious archetype and the themes associated with that archetype. Here are the definitions for each of the profile lines.
Line 1 - Investigator
Line 2 - Hermit
Line 3 - Martyr
Line 4 - Opportunist
Line 5 - Heretic
Line 6 - Role Model
The twelve profiles are combinations of two of those lines (conscious and unconscious). Here are the twelve profiles:
1/3 Investigator Martyr
3/6 Martyr/Role Model
4/6 Opportunist/Role Model
6/2 Role Model/Hermit
6/3 Role Model/Martyr
A Human Design Analysis can tell you in great detail what types of themes you can expect to encounter in your life based on your specific profile.
-You know, I don't think I've ever met a 2/5....wonder if they stay in more than I do, since they have the paraniod 5th line? I'm a 2/4, but I'll come out of my bubble for an opportunity.
