What is the Personality Number in Numerology?

In numerology your personality number (also called Outer personality number) reveals how others see you. This may be a true indication of the real or it could just how you are viewed by others but not who you really are. Many times in life we are told by someone that we would be perfect to a particular job or task. This is based on how others see us. Perhaps you have taken someone’s advice and pursued a specific job or task based on someone else’s opinion. In the end the job or task you have accepted is not satisfying to you even though you may be very good at it. The reason is you inside are different than how the average person sees you. Not everyone wears their heart on their sleeve and is easily recognized for who they really are. By learning your Personality Number you can get insight how others view you.

 How Do I Calculate My Personality Number?

To calculate your Personality Number in numerology you are going to use your full birth name, the one that appears on your birth certificate. You are going to take the consonants only and assign numerical values to them and add them together. If you have a double digit number then reduce that number to a single digit number unless you have master numbers of 11, 22 or 33.

 When calculating the Heart’s Desire Number you will use the vowels in your name. The vowels are the letters A, E, I, O and U. Now there are cases in numerology when the letter Y is considered a vowel. If the letter Y is used as vowel in one’s name then numerology considers it a vowel. Here is such an example, the name Lynn uses the letter Y as a vowel. Also if the letter Y produces a separate sound as with names Mary and Betty, Here the Y gives the name completely different preconception. If you remove the Y you Mar and Bett. Example where the letter is not considered a vowel is with the names Chumley or Bradley. In this case the Y is just an extension of the letter vowel E, yes it does change the way we pronounce the name but the E is the vowel here.

 We are going to use President Obama’s full legal name of Barack Hussein Obama as an example.

A = 1

J = 1

S = 1

B = 2

K = 2

T = 2

C = 3

L = 3

U = 3

D = 4

M = 4

V = 4

E = 5

N = 5

W = 5

F = 6

O = 6

X = 6

G = 7

P = 7

Y = 7

H= 8

Q = 8

Z = 8

I = 9

R = 9

Above is the chart we refer to assign number to the consonants in the President’s name.

  • The consonants in Barack Hussein Obama are B R C K H S S N B M
  • The numerical value in an equation is 2 + 9 + 3 + 2 + 8 + 1 + 1 + 5 + 2 + 4 = 37
  • We will reduce the 37 as 3 + 7 = 10, still a double digit we reduce 1 + 0 = 1
  • President Obama’s Personality Number is 1.
