The 5 /1 profile. The challenge solver.
Your profile is a combination of 2 numbers. The first number is how you see yourself. The second number is how others see you. Think of profile as a costume you wear in this lifetime, an archetypal role that you play out. You may possibly have more in common with someone who has they same profile than you rather than the same type. The 64 gates in human design (based on the 64 hexagrams of the I-ching) each have six lines, giving a deeper understanding of each of the gates. These 6 lines in the hexagram are the basis of human design profile.
The 5th line is the heretic (messenger) conscious
The 1st is the investigator (teacher) unconscious
If you have the larger number first in your profile it means you have a transpersonal karma, which mean as a 5/1 you are here for other people, the 5/1 is the most transpersonal of all the profiles.
The 5the line of the heretic has a save the day energy. 5/1's are through and dependable. 5/1's are people who are often projected upon to save or rescue others. People get a sense that you have something potentially helpful that they need and this draws people to you. The key for you as a 5/1 is to only say yes to things that you know you can sort out! Know when to say yes to any calls for help, you don't have to say yes to all of them. If you say yes to helping, guiding or leading others when it's not correct for you, or make commitments you cant live up to, this may harm your reputation and you would hate to disappoint others or let them down. The worst thing for you is not being able to deliver. Don't say yes to things you cant fulfil.
Other people will be important to you on your journey, it could be people who are in your life for a long time or a chat with someone whilst out walking your dog, these people have an important role to play in your life. You are for everyone, you have close friends and you can just as happily chat away to someone your just met sitting next to on the train. You are designed to meet new people but it is also important for you to have times of solitude to cultivate your skills so that you can be ready to meet the next crisis that you commit to solving!
The 1st line is the investigator, someone who likes to get to the bottom of things, you want to know everything you can about the things that interest you, you may have a ton of books, like courses or seminars, want to take a second degree, you want to learn learn, learn, eventually you'll get to a point where you are an authority in your field, be sure you see yourself as one. Also be wary of “I don't know enough” as an excuse for not putting your work out there, there can be an insecurity about not knowing enough. You are a great researcher of things, if you are putting any work out there into the world you've more than likely researched it really well. Be sure to put it out there! Studying is how you establish a secure foundation, knowledge is how you make sense of the world. The thing is 5/1's love the whole process!
5/1's can be reluctant to show their true selves. Few people only ever get to know a 5/1. They do things differently and often go against the grain but the world doesn't see this in you, they just see the investigator, the one who is always curious. 5/1's are keen observers of the world, being prepared and correct timing is key to your success, follow your strategy & authority.You may feel like you need to be doing something good in the world, solving a problem and helping other people and this is correct for you as long as you select the correct challenges to solve.
