How Do You Appear In Life? Your Personality Number Can Help Explain
If you ever wonder how others usually perceive you, you will find fascinating insight by finding out your personality number. Numerology is there to help you better understand yourself and others, and this number is a bridge between you and the rest of the world.
While your personality is deep and has many layers, you have a predisposition to only go so far as to reveal yourself—often subconsciously. You can also calculate this number to find out insight about any other person.
What personality number shows is how the person chooses to present themselves into the world and how much (or how little) do they open up to others. It is a neat sneak peek into a person’s character.
Calculating Your Personality Number
Pythagorean Numerology chart:
- 1 = A, J, S
- 2 = B, K, T
- 3 = C, L, U
- 4 = D, M, V
- 5 = E, N, W
- 6 = F, O, X
- 7 = G, P, Y
- 8 = H, Q, Z
- 9 = I, R
Using the chart above, to calculate a personality number you need to add just the consonants of your full name (including a middle name if you have one).
When it comes to letter “Y,” it is counted as a consonant when following a vowel such as in the name Marley, or when it is used to make a “J” sound. “Y” is counted as a vowel when it is the only vowel in the syllable like in Darcy.
When you added all of the numbers that correspond to consonants, if you get a two digit number (besides 11 and 22), you add those digits again until you get a one-digit number. This is your personality number, which tells you how you show up in life.
Personality Number 1 – Independent
Number 1 is the number of leadership, and it shows up this way in a personality number as well. As a number 1, you present yourself into the world as independent, but not anti-social. You are not afraid to be in front of a large group and motivate it with a purpose. When left unchecked, one can appear too egotistical and attention-seeking.
Personality Number 2 – Peacemaking
As a number 2, you appear to others as artistic, creative, sometimes idealistic, and trustworthy. You seem like a very down to Earth person, and others can relate and connect to you easily. This gift also makes you talented in bringing people together in harmony. The downfall of number 2 can be the inability to make decisions as there too many ideas going on in their head.
Personality Number 3 – Creative
If you are number 3, others find you to be very creative, intelligent, and interesting to talk to and get to know. You come off as a fantastic communicator and love to tell stories. You goal as a 3 is to not get carried away with daydreaming or being overly dramatic when explaining to others your ideas or life experiences.
Personality Number 4 – Dependable
Number 4 is the most dependable of all numbers. If this is your personality number, people view you as organized, self-disciplined, hard working, and stable. Others often come to you for answers to any of their life and work questions. Your task is to stop being so serious every once in a while, have more fun, and try something new and unpredictable.
Personality Number 5 – Adventurous
Number 5 is the number of constant change, and as a personality number it makes a person seem unpredictable, adventurous, spontaneous, fun-loving, and very social. As a number 5 personality number, you love to travel and show off your travels to others. As a 5, you may come off a bit unreliable or flaky, so prioritizing keeping your work and being on time can be helpful.
Personality Number 6 – Social
Number 6 is a nurturing and loving number and these qualities show up if you have a 6 as your personality number. Others flock to you and your warm character and look to you for comfort. You make strong bonds with other people and are also very family-oriented. The only thing you need to be aware off is to not let others walk over you because you always want to keep peace.
Personality Number 7 – Observant
Number 7 is an independent number, but unlike number 1—in an introverted way. If you are a 7, you are observant; you like to study people and are very good at reading them. You are also very intelligent and always seeking more knowledge. Some may describe you as an ‘old soul.’ You need to know that as a 7 sometimes you are hard to get to know and build closer connections with, so you need to make an effort to open up more.
Personality Number 8 – Ambitious
Number 8 is always looking for success, and that is exactly how others see you. You are determined to keep reaching higher levels in everything that you do; you can be unstoppable towards your goals. It is important to see a difference between acting confident and being arrogant for a number 8.
Personality Number 9 – Idealistic
Number 9 is a humanitarian number. If it is your personality number, you act idealistic in life, always finding ideas to help the world. You are very loving towards every other human and living creature, and positive about trying to make change. 9s make good leaders in a non-ego driven way. The one thing you need to be cautious about is not sounding too preachy when talking about your idealistic ideas and philosophies.
Personality Number 11 – Gentle
Carrying some of number 1 energy, an 11 is also a great leader but in a gentle, less arrogant way. Number 11 expresses less of their ego, and more gentleness and kindness instead. If personality number 11 is your number, you may need to overcome being shy and nervous in order to step into your natural leadership role.
Personality Number 22 – Balanced
Number 22 combines the energies of numbers 2 and 4. Number 2 makes you creative, emotional, and social, while number 4 is hardworking and more left brain analytical. It is a perfect merge of the left and right brain talents. You know how to achieve balance and live your life in the flow. Others see you as a well-rounded person. Your challenge is recognizing your own talents and potential.
