Generator Energy Type: Strengths & Gifts
Generators are the energetic bunnies of the five energy types above. Your energy is vital. Other types don’t have consistent energy like yours and they need it, too.
When you do what truly sparks and interests you, you light up with excitement and energize yourself and everyone around you. Everyone else needs your energy to create, build, and get things done.
This energy is necessary to create, build, and get things done. You are here to produce products, services, and concepts that the world needs and wants. Your drive will lead you to produce products, services, and ideas that the world needs and wants.
But Generators only tap into this immense energy when they are excited about something. When they do what sparks and interests them, they buzz with energy.
This energy is magnetic. When you are excited, people are drawn to you; this attracts clients, opportunities, relationships, and friends who feed off what you love doing. This life will be truly aligned to what you want. This is why you shouldn’t feel guilty or selfish to chase your desires, even if other people disagree.
Thus, Generators are meant to follow their passions, desires and pleasures. But they often feel guilty or selfish to do this, especially if it excludes or displeases people.
So, many generators get ‘stuck’ in jobs, relationships, or lives they no longer enjoy. They stop tapping into their huge energy and become frustrated. This is a disservice to their best gift and tiredness and boredom seeps.
Decision-Making for Generators
> Generator Strategy: Respond
You are designed to react to the world as it comes to you and see what feels exciting. If you try to actively chase and uncover your interests, you will waste time and energy and get frustrated. Your gut will spark up when something interests you. This is a sign of what you should follow in life, which will lead you to your purpose and happiness.
Many generators get ‘stuck’ in jobs, relationships, or lives they don’t enjoy because they follow what they ‘should’ do. They get caught in cycles of people-pleasing and ignore their desires. This means they never tap into the true potential of their huge energy and become frustrated with things around them.
As a pure generator, it is important for you to reconnect to your deepest desires, what excites you, and what gets your body going: this is how your gut speaks to you. Look for sensations, sounds, or feelings when something piques your interest; it might be a hit in your stomach, sitting up straight, or giggling in delight.
When your gut (sacral) response is a ‘hell yes’ or ‘I love this,’ this is a sign of what you should follow. A weaker sensation such as ‘maybe’ or ‘I guess so’ is a no. When your excitement subsides, you should move on.
It can be difficult to know what you want; but if you chase it, you can end up in an endless search. Instead, you are designed to respond to what naturally comes into your life. This can be anything from advertising on social media to products in a store. It might be a conversation with friends or a book recommendation. The important thing is that you move through your life constantly checking how your gut responds.
Your gut will give you a physical hit of excitement, which is its signal that you should follow something. Look for sensations, sounds, or feelings when something piques your interest; it might be a buzz in your stomach, sitting up straight, or feeling compelled to learn more about something.
– Not-Self (Negative Response): Frustration
Many think it is only a dream to have fun at work or make money from their passions. But in the case of a pure generator, this is vital. Other energy types do not have a consistent energy source like you. If you are not excited, you will not create the energy that we all need to get things done.
When a generator does not love what they’re doing, they will feel frustrated, burnt out, uninspired, unhappy, depressed, constricted, stressed, exhausted or overwhelmed. It can also feel like an energetic frustration, like things aren’t moving or flowing as you want. If you are feeling any of these emotions, take a look in the moment at which situations or people are causing this.
These emotions are signs that you need to change or remove what doesn’t light you up. It might be small tweaks of a situation, such as freedom at work or in a relationship to chase projects or hobbies you like. It might mean letting go of bigger things, such as an entire career or a relationship. Start small and experiment.
When you spend your energy doing only what you love, you will feel a sense of deep satisfaction at the end of the day that your energy was well used. This satisfaction is a sign that you are on the right path.
+ Signature (Positive Response): Satisfaction
When you direct your energy to do what you really love, you will feel satiated and satisfied that the day was well spent. Satisfaction is the emotion you associate with happiness.
Identify which people, situations and experiences energize you. Share your contagious energy, excitement and interests with others; It might be your favorite meal or a weekend hobby.
This satisfaction is a sign that you are on the right path and you will rest deeply. If you still have energy at the end of the day, it can help to physically release it with exercise or other hobbies you love.
Generators in Relationships & Love
- It is important that your partner and family understand your need to follow your passions and interests, even if it excludes or disappoints them. Balance is key, though, to make sure your passions do not consume your whole life.
- If you make plans that involve someone else, only say yes when you really mean it. Otherwise, you might show up feeling frustrated or dread that you have to go.
- Generators often fear that they come across as selfish if they say no, but they only serve others when they are truly passionate. Otherwise, you do not show up as your magnetic and energized self.
Generators in Work & Careers
- You need the freedom to follow your passions in the workplace. Generators may feel frustrated if their desired projects are rejected or they are stuck doing tasks they don’t enjoy.
- See if you can delegate tasks that don’t light you up. When a project excites you, you can energize your whole team and this is important for success.
