Role Model and Hermit
In human design, which I am just starting to learn about, my profile is 6/2. 6 is the Role Model, and 2 is the Hermit.
The first number is how others see you, and your life expression. The second number is how you see yourself.
This is for the 6/2 like me:
From cradle to grave, you are, quite literally, a natural born role model whose wisdom, perception, and vision can be both a gift and a stabilizing force in your world.
You are just one of those people who can see what needs to happen and how to bring all the missing pieces together to form a bigger, more coherent picture.
It is a natural gift. You are here to be a role model and are known as someone with high ideals, high standards, and high goals.
This, in turn leads to a tendency to take charge always, because very few people can do anything as well as you, leading to the sometimes frustrated cry of “Do I have to do everything around here?”
You are liable to micromanage every little detail, and the prospect of delegation only happens once you have established that the people around you are both willing and capable.
Throughout life, you’re constantly absorbing information on an insatiable quest for knowledge and new interests.
I’m sure you are regarded as either a master of general knowledge, a fount of all wisdom, or a great visionary of your time, finding balance between spiritual and earthly connections.
It can sometimes frustrate you that no one sees the same bigger picture as you.
Understand that no one is being shortsighted or dumb; it’s just that the majority of people you come across will not get it in the same way you do and might not share the same zeal to grab life by the scruff of the neck and make a difference.
Few people ever find themselves on the same page as a worldly and wise 6/2 profile.
You simply have a view of life that is often beyond the scope of most people’s comprehension, save for 6/2 and 6/3 profiles.
If we were in conversation, I would immediately detect your grasp of the world and a joie de vivre that comes with eternal optimism.
There would be something assured, clear, well rounded, and precise about your manner.
You have the social and professional ability to stand above irrelevant dramas and see things for how they truly are or what they really mean.
I suspect you grew up hearing the words “Wise beyond they really mean.
What you might not readily appreciate is an unconscious reticence to use your abilities to the fullest.
Indeed, there is the possibility of your appearing stand offish at times, wondering whether you can be bothered.
This is the more subtle undercurrent of the second line at play.
You personally prize your precious time and energy, so a commitment really has to be worth your while if it is to be fulfilling.
It’s almost as if there is an air of “Well, make me a good offer and I’ll think about it” about you.
If you’re not conscious of this aspect, there is a danger that you’ll spend life avoiding your true calling and true potential, forever backing away, making excuses, and bowing to the second line pulling you into the shadows.
Just remember that your wisdom and inspiration need air and appreciation, which require you to put them out there.
When you are engaged with a person or project, there can be a tendency to juggle too many plates or try to conquer the world.
You are the manager, conductor, and forward planner.
But take on too much weight of responsibility and you get bogged down and bored with life.
Suddenly, the joie de vivre evaporates and the great overseer prefers being an efficient functionary or assistant, letting everyone else do a far less competent job.
As with all second-line profiles, you need a place of solitude in which to recharge and take stock.
6/2 profiles have no problem in their own company.
These are women quite happy to shop for an entire weekend by themselves or men content to be wrapped up in a solo project or pursuit.
As for the life progression, 6’s have 3 life stage:
The 2nd line hermit in combination with the 6th line progression of life stages can lead to 3 distinct expressions in the life of a 6-2.To understand the stages lets focus on the progression of the the 6th line.
In the first 28 years or until Saturn returns the 6th line is introspective and experimental. Coupled with the the hermit of the 2nd line this can be quiet or reserved self experimenting individual. Though through their experimentation they may have burst of energetic expression or what might seem like explosions from their somewhat reserved personalities. The 2nd line hermit will keep pulling them into being alone, but the friends of the individual will call them out. Overall there is an intensity to the inward focus with both the 2nd and 3rd lines being inward. But as the 6-2 approaches age 28 the 6th line will give up the experimentation and head for the roof.
From 28 to around 50 the 6th line is up on the roof. This is a more aloof time for the 6th line and they are no peering outward, looking at how other people do things. They are trying to learn about life through the results of others and then pulling in this wisdom and internalizing it. The roof can feel muted and less engaged. Again with the 2nd line they will want to be alone and be called out. Perhaps developing a cycle or rhythm or pattern or withdrawing then going out.
At 50 or around the return of Kyron the 6-2 is ready to come down off the roof and be the role model. Through the self experimentation of the younger years and the observation of the middle years the 6-2 has assembled a wealth of wisdom to be shared. But while the 6-2 is a social being they are reserved. The role model will not be preachy but come out when called upon. This can be a dilemma to the 6-2 and those around them. They can seem aloof or not engaged. But in reality they are waiting for that call out when they can supply their role model wisdom for the benefit of themselves and others.
