When someone asks you who you are, your personality, your thoughts, and your opinions, you will quickly give them answers that you think are correct. But sometimes what you think about yourself is not what other people think. For instance, you may think that you are a humble person but other people think that you are rude. Sometimes what we think of ourselves is not what other people think.
If you want to discover what other people think about you, then you need to know your personality number. Each person’s personality has a number associated with it. So if you want to know who you are in the eye of other people, then you need to know your personality number. So what exactly are personality numbers, how are they calculated, and why it is important to know your personality number? In this article, we will tell you everything you need to know about personality numbers.
What are personality numbers?
Personality numbers are single-digit numbers that help you see what other people think about your personality. It helps you know the outer you why some things are happening or have been happening in your life. For instance, you will know why some people stay with you while others leave.

Personality numbers are one of the 5 main numbers in numerology. Understanding this number is crucial if you want to know how you present yourself to others, your style, your behavior, and much more.

Personality numbers are single-digit numbers meaning they range from 1-9. However, some personality numbers have double-digit such as 11, 22, and 33. Personality numbers with double-digit numbers are known as master numbers. In numerology, master numbers are powerful numbers that come with intense negative or positive traits.

How are personality numbers calculated?
Calculating personality numbers is simple. There are two ways in which you can calculate your personality number. They include the subtraction method and addition method. The subtraction method involves using your soul urge number and density number to find your personality number. On the other hand, the addition method involves converting your names consonant into numbers then adding them together. In this section, we will discuss these two methods of calculating personality numbers.
1. The subtraction method
This method of calculating personality numbers is not effective for people whose personality numbers are master numbers. So if you believe that your personality number is a master number, then you should use the addition method.
Step by step process of calculating your personality number using the subtraction method.
Step 1: Determine your destiny number.
This is done by calculating all letters in your full name. Your destiny number helps to reveal your destiny and how you express yourself.
Step 2: Determine your soul urge number
Your soul urge number is calculated by adding all vowels in your name, your soul urge number will help you know your inner desires, dreams, and motivations.
Step 3: Subtract your soul urge number from your destiny number to determine your personality number.
2. The additional method
As mentioned above, this method is ideal for people whose personality numbers fall under the master number. Below is a step-by-step process of how to calculate your personality number using the addition method.
Step 1: Calculate the numerology value of all consonants in your name using the numerology chart.
Step 2: Add all values of the consonant together into a total sum
Step 3: Reduce the sum into single digits by adding them together.
For instance, if the total sum of your name is 25, reduce it to a single digit by adding (2+5). If the total sum of names consonant is 11, 22, or 33, then you should not reduce it into a single digit because your personality number is a master number.
If your name has a latter Y, then you might be confused on whether to use it as a consonant or a vowel. This is because the letter Y can be used either as a vowel or a consonant. The way you use the letter Y depends on how it sounds in your name. For instance, if Y in your name sounds more like a vowel and it is positioned near another vowel, then it should be used as a vowel.
