Understanding Generators in Relationships

Posted by Sebastien | February 14, 2023 at 1:49 pm | 47 views

Have you ever been curious about the impact of human design energy types on how it can shape your relationships? Generators bring powerful gifts to their relationships, including an understanding of their own needs and how to meet them. Generators can often find themselves in the role of the giver when it comes to relationships. Yet, they are just as capable of receiving love as anyone else. By understanding the unique needs of Generators, we can better appreciate how they act in love relationships and ultimately foster stronger connections.

How Generators Respond to Challenges and Conflict

Generators are expressive and empathetic people who enjoy being open and honest with their partners. They have a natural drive to create connections – both with others and with themselves. As a result, Generators are particularly perceptive when it comes to picking up on nuances in their relationships that aren’t always so obvious to the rest of us. They are exceptionally good at bringing these clues into the open, which is a great asset when a challenge arises in a relationship. Because Generators are so attuned to their partners, they are often the first ones to notice signs of sadness or anxiety, which can prompt them to ask what’s wrong and what can be done to help.

Tips for Communicating Effectively with Generators

Generators are very aware of their own needs. When communicating with a Generator, be conscious of and respect these needs. Yet, Generators might have blind spots to the needs of their partners.

When communicating with a Generator, follow these 8 practical guidelines:

    1. Be patient with Generators’ initial need-driven communication style. It will take them longer to fully understand the non-verbal cues that communicate their needs to you than it does with other types.
    2. Be mindful of timing while communicating with Generators. They are sometimes prone to “spacing out” as they process what you’re saying, particularly if they’re processing it nonverbally.
    3. Use generative language when communicating with Generators. Generative terms such as “I feel” or “I would like” are helpful when trying to get a better sense of what a particular need may be.
    4. Generators often feel very connected to their partners, which can make them feel insecure or vulnerable when their partners aren’t paying attention to them. This can sometimes manifest as impatience or anger. If you see this behaviour in your partner, be patient with them.
    5. Remember that Generators’ needs are often different from those of non-Generators. Don’t assume that a need that may be especially important to you, like connection or validation, is unimportant to your partner.
    6. Remember that Generators often need to process in an “open-ended” way before they’re ready to fully meet a need. This is particularly true when a need is “defensive.”
    7. Remember that Generators want to be loved for who they are and what they bring to the relationship. This means respecting them and their boundaries, even if you don’t always agree with them.
    8. Remember that Generators are especially sensitive and open to change. This means that they may be particularly resistant to pushing you to change and can feel invalidated when you do. Be patient with this and offer instead to help the both of you navigate these emotional shifts more effectively.


Generators are a unique type who bring a powerful gift to any relationship: an understanding of their own needs and how to meet them. Balanced with the gifts of other types, Generators are a powerful force for good in any relationship. When communicating with Generators, be patient with their initial need-driven communication style and mindful of timing. Use generative language and remember that Generators want to be loved for who they are and what they bring to the relationship.
