Your Human Design Variables: The Key to Understanding Your Unique Design

Your Human Design Variables: The Key to Understanding Your Unique Design

Posted by Alyssia Webb on

 

Human Design variables, also known as the Four Transformations, are four arrows that are located on your Human Design bodygraph. They represent how you take in information, set and go after goals, and thrive in different environments.

The four variables are:

  • Determination (also called Digestion): This top right arrow shows how you process information and make decisions. If you have an active determination arrow (R), you are a strategic thinker who likes to have a plan. If you have a passive determination arrow (L), you are more intuitive and prefer to follow your gut.
  • Environment : This bottom left arrow shows how you interact with your environment. If you have an observed environment arrow, you are energized by being around people and activity. If you have an observer environment arrow, you are more comfortable being alone and reflecting on your experiences.
  • View (also called Perspective): This top left arrow  shows how you see the world. If you have a focused view arrow (R), you are detail-oriented and like to have things figured out. If you have a peripheral view arrow (L), you are more big-picture oriented and enjoy exploring new possibilities.
  • Motivation : This bottom right arrow shows how you are motivated. If you have a strategic motivation arrow, you are motivated by achieving goals and having a sense of purpose. If you have a focused motivation arrow, you are motivated by learning and understanding the world around you.

The four variables are each associated with a set of qualities and characteristics. For example, people with an active determination arrow are often seen as being decisive, goal-oriented, and strategic. People with an observer environment arrow are often seen as being introspective, independent, and sensitive to their environment.

The four variables can provide valuable insights into your personality and how you interact with the world around you. By understanding your variables, you can learn to live more in alignment with your design and make better decisions that are in line with your true nature.

Here is a table that summarizes the four variables and their associated qualities:

Variable Quality
Determination Strategic, decisive, goal-oriented
Environment Observed, energized by people and activity, extroverted
View Focused, detail-oriented, likes to have things figured out
Motivation Strategic, motivated by achieving goals and having a sense of purpose

 

The 16 Variables

There are 16 possible combinations of the four variables in Human Design, which are:

  • Active Determination, Observed Environment, Strategic View, Focused Motivation
  • Active Determination, Observed Environment, Strategic View, Peripheral Motivation
  • Active Determination, Observed Environment, Receptive View, Focused Motivation
  • Active Determination, Observed Environment, Receptive View, Peripheral Motivation
  • Active Determination, Observer Environment, Strategic View, Focused Motivation
  • Active Determination, Observer Environment, Strategic View, Peripheral Motivation
  • Active Determination, Observer Environment, Receptive View, Focused Motivation
  • Active Determination, Observer Environment, Receptive View, Peripheral Motivation
  • Passive Determination, Observed Environment, Strategic View, Focused Motivation
  • Passive Determination, Observed Environment, Strategic View, Peripheral Motivation
  • Passive Determination, Observed Environment, Receptive View, Focused Motivation
  • Passive Determination, Observed Environment, Receptive View, Peripheral Motivation
  • Passive Determination, Observer Environment, Strategic View, Focused Motivation
  • Passive Determination, Observer Environment, Strategic View, Peripheral Motivation
  • Passive Determination, Observer Environment, Receptive View, Focused Motivation
  • Passive Determination, Observer Environment, Receptive View, Peripheral Motivation

The first two variables, Determination and Environment, determine how you process information and make decisions. The second two variables, View and Motivation, determine how you see the world and how you are motivated.

The first variable in each combination, Determination or Environment, is called the "active" variable. This means that you are more likely to be drawn to the qualities of this variable. The second variable in each combination, Observed or Observer, is called the "passive" variable. This means that you are more likely to be comfortable with the qualities of this variable.

The third variable in each combination, View or Motivation, is called the "strategic" variable. This means that you are more likely to use the qualities of this variable to achieve your goals. The fourth variable in each combination, Focused or Peripheral, is called the "focused" variable. This means that you are more likely to be drawn to the qualities of this variable when you are focused on a specific task or goal.

The 16 variables in Human Design provide a deep and nuanced understanding of how you process information, make decisions, see the world, and are motivated. By understanding your variables, you can learn to live in alignment with your design and experience greater levels of peace, happiness, and fulfillment.
