# Understanding and Calculating the Numerology Personality Number

Numerology is a numbers game as we all have many numbers associated with us. When determining your personal numerology numbers you usually only need you exact date of birth and your legal full name as it appears on your birth certificate. From these two pieces of information you can calculate you common numerology numbers.

One of the more interesting personal numerology numbers is the personality number. This number is derived from your full birth name. The personality number is a reflection of how others see you. This may differ from who you really are as some people constantly put up a front hiding their true personality. The personality number gives a person some indication whether the rest of the world sees them as they really are.

When calculating your personality number you take your full name and pull out the consonants only and assign a numerical number to each one of the consonants. Just to be sure here, a consonant is a letter that is NOT a vowel. Then you add all the numbers together. If you have a double-digit number, which are common then you reduce that double-digit number by adding the two digits together. If the double-digit number is a master number of 11 or 22 then you need NOT to reduce.

Let’s do one for fun:

We pull out all the consonants which are P R S W H T N Y H L T N and throw away the vowels which are A I I E I O. This is a great example because the middle name of Whitney has the letter Y. The letter Y can at times be considered a vowel it all depends on how it is used in the word. In this case the letter Y is NOT a vowel as it is an extension to the middle name of Whitney. If you remove the Y you now have Whitne which is still pronounced the same. If the letter Y is used as a substitute of a vowel as in the name of Lynn then it is considered a vowel. If the letter Y changes the pronunciation of the name it is then considered a vowel as in Mary or Betty. When removing the letter Y from these names you have a completely different name and is pronounced different as Mar and Bett.

Now, let’s add up the consonants by assigning number values. We use this Numerology number chart.

A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, E=5, F=6, G=7, H=8, I=9

J=1, K=2, L=3, M=4, N=5, O=6, P=7, Q=8, R=9

S=1, T=2, U=3, V=4, W=5, X=6, Y=7, Z=8

P R S W H T N Y H L T N

7 9 1 5 8 2 5 7 8 3 2 5 add these numbers together to get 62. Reduce 62 as 6+2 = 8.

The personality number of Paris Whitney Hilton is 8. The next step is cross-reference what the personality number of 8 means. You will be amazed just how accurate the personality number of the celebrity Paris Hilton is.
