Children in general are of Gen, especially males up the age of fifteen. The youngest son is of the mountain trigram alongside bachelors.

The mountain trigram is referred to as “The Stable” and is of a quietly passive nature. Of hidden strength and concealed intellect, Gen is the trigram also called “The Revolutionary”. Gen is the trigram of inner nature, of one’s true self. Gen is the trigram that gives message of allowing oneself to become refreshed.
