In numerology, there are five fundamental numbers that are important in deciding who you are and what path you should take in life. These essential numbers in your numerology chart include your birthday number, life path number, personality number, expression number, and soul urge number.
But let’s talk about your personality number. This number is special because it gives you an idea of how everyone sees you.
What is a personality number?
The personality number has a lot to do with the aspects of yourself that you choose to share with the world. Think of it as your public representative.
Your Personality Number is a mask you wear to influence how others perceive you. But this number should not be seen as misleading; rather, as a way to filter your interactions and save the more personal parts of yourself for those who deserve it.
Your personality is like a waiting room for those who want to enter the great ballroom that is you.
Start by inviting newcomers to see the basic features that everyone can see. As time goes by, you learn who you can trust and give them access to deeper parts of your personality. You begin to reveal your desires, passions, and vulnerabilities.
You can also think of your Personality Number as the numerological equivalent of your Ascendant in astrology.
Your Personality Number is a censorship method. Control the messages you send and regulate what you receive. While your true self may be open and receptive, the Personality Number represents the protective side, discarding people and situations that do not suit you.
How to calculate your personality number
Your Personality Number is easy to calculate. It only requires your full name, unlike other primary numbers that require your full date of birth or time of birth. To calculate your Personality Number, add the digits that correspond to the consonant letters of your full name at birth.
1 = A, J, S
2 = B, K, T
3 = C, L, U
4 = D, M, V
5 = E, N, O
6 = F, O, X
7 = G, P, Y
8 = H, Q, Z
9 = I, R
For example, if your name is SAMUEL JONES, you would assign a numerical value to each consonant letter in the name:
S = 1
M = 4
L = 3
J = 1
N = 5
S = 1
Then add the numbers.
1 + 4 + 3 + 1 + 5 + 1 = 15 (1 + 5) = Personality Number 6
Like your Life Path Number, you can reduce your Personality Number to one or two digits, but only if those two-digit numbers are Master Numbers 11, 22, or 33.
Personality Number Meanings
Your Personality Number can help provide a blueprint for how you should navigate the world. Each number has its own distinct meaning. Once your number is calculated and you’ve found yours, learn more about the facade you present to the world.
Personality Number 1
Those with a Number 1 Personality are natural leaders. They exude confidence and creativity, and are loyal, sometimes to the extreme.
Those with this Personality Number need to be aware of their own ego, making sure that it does not make them overconfident. Number 1s should try to be more compassionate and open to the ideas of others.
Personality Number 2
If you have a personality number 2, you may be in a bad mood, so you should always check on him to make sure he is neither hot nor cold. The shyness of the number 2 could also hinder the desired progress.
On the plus side, Number 2s are generally friendly, honest, and trustworthy. If you get into his inner circle, he will be one of the most trusted friends you have and can provide you with a shoulder to cry on in times of need.
Personality number 3
The number 3 personality has no shortage of creativity and exhibits a strong sense of intuition. Their communication skills are top notch and they know exactly what to say to get their point across.
However, the opportunistic nature of the Number 3 can be seen as manipulative, so you must be careful not to turn people off with your ability to take advantage of circumstances.
Personality number 4
The number 4 personality is rarely seen as the life of the party. They tend to take life seriously and are perceived by those around them as boring.
But number 4s are affectionate and family-oriented. They tend to be stable, provide security to their loved ones and have a mature outlook on life.
Personality number 5
Personality Number 5s are nice to be around. No situation is too big for them to tackle. They keep their spirits high and are not afraid to take risks.
On the other hand, Number 5s sometimes chew more than they can handle. They become overloaded with the problems of others, so they must practice self-care regularly.
Personality Number 6
Personality Number 6s are super loving and warm. They are not prone to regular ups and downs and keep themselves well balanced. They are generous and fulfill the responsibilities they choose to take on.
The downside of number 6s is that they are subject to a lot of stress and worry, especially about money. Rightly so, as they can be flighty when it comes to finances.
Personality number 7
Personality numbers 7 are rational and only do what makes logical sense. They are very intelligent and always behave with dignity.
Others may be put off by Number 7’s reserved attitudes and seemingly unemotional ways. But those with this Personality Number are often unbothered by what others think of them.
Personality number 8
Personality number 8 is the one most likely to have been successful. That is due in part to their great judgment, discipline, and intuition.
But number 8s can be domineering, imposing their will on others, which can drive people away. They can also come across as braggart when they talk about the spoils of their hits.
Personality number 9
Personality numbers 9 are lovable and popular. They are magnetic, drawing people to them. Their charm, coupled with their generosity, makes them influential in social circles.
Number 9s can also be seen as aloof due to their expectations and sense of entitlement. The more attention and praise they receive, the more arrogant they can become.
Personality number 11
The number 11 personality is sensitive and vulnerable. They love to be surrounded by friends and family, and enjoy quiet surroundings.
That vulnerability can also be a double-edged sword. Those who come into contact with them may see them as weak or negative, and may try to use them as a punching bag.
Personality number 22
Personality number 22 is consistent and dependable. They always give their best in what they commit to.
Although powerful, the number 22 can easily feel insecure and inferior to others. Lack of confidence can cause them to lose the ambition they have come to be known for.
Personality number 33
Personality number 33 is confident and inspiring. They give off a fatherly vibe that makes others feel like they should listen. Number 33s love all things artistic and are naturally creative.
But one glaring weakness of Number 33 is his inability to judge people correctly. This often leaves them vulnerable and worried as they frequently find themselves in unhealthy relationships.
