“I’ve always been – you know, my personality is motivating and encouraging. And so I’m just being who God made me to be.” – Joel Osteen
The personality number represents how others view us on first impression. It influences our style in grooming, clothing choices and mannerisms. The topics of conversation we talk about when we first meet people are shown here, it is the part of us that people notice first. The personality number may be seen as a mask in that it does not necessarily reveal how you are on a deeper level. Rather, it reveals a part of you that is visible to the public. It is similar to the ascendant in astrology.
The personality number is derived from adding the consonants in your name.
