I have always had a fairly good memory when it comes to numbers, and a little research on ‘Pythagoras: the Greek mathematician, philosopher and mystic who was considered the “Father of Numbers”, determining that number was the essence of all things’ produced some unusual and fun facts which made me smile.
Interestingly, I read that numerology can be used to determine a person’s personality, strengths and talents, obstacles, inner needs, emotional reactions and ways of dealing with others! How????..well, in numerology, quite simply all numbers are reduced to the single digits 1 through 9, except the special master numbers 11 and 22. The numbers are reduced by simple addition and for your own personal number just take your date of birth and add each digit until you have a single number e.g. 1st February 2018 would be: 1+2+2+0+1+8 = 14, then 1+4 = 5 as the single number.
The single number is said to define an individual’s personality and character (each having a positive and negative element)…..NOW FOR THE FUN BIT…here are brief listings of traits for each number:
1 Positive Traits: Initiator of action, a pioneering spirit, inventive ideas, strong leadership skills, independent, drives to attain, individualistic style, executive abilities, extraordinary will and determination, courageous.
1 Negative Traits: Overly assertive or aggressive, dominating, impulsiveness, egotistic, boastfulness, wilfulness.
