Personality Number


Your Personality number often serves as a censoring device, both in terms of what you send out, as well as what you allow to approach. It lists the characteristics you project and indicates how others are most likely to perceive you before getting to know you well, and so by learning about your Personality Number you can get insight of how others view you. It discriminates in the kinds of people and information you let enter your heart and mind, and it is those aspects that you feel comfortable sharing with people at the outset of a relationship.

Personality Number is one of the five core numbers that include your Life Path Number, Heart's Desire (aka Soul Urge) , Day Number (the day you were born on), and Expression (aka Destiny) Number.

Your Personality number is derived from the consonants of your full name at birth.

  • I programmed the script to automatically determine whether the Y in your name (if you have one) should be a vowel or a consonant. However, if you'd like to force the Y to be used as a consonant, use the asterisk * symbol in its place; or the # symbol to use it as a vowel.
  • Enter your name and hit Submit.
How To Calculate – Personality Number

Each letter in your name is given a single digit number, based on the chart below.
Expression Destiny Number Chart Numerology Calculator
I have just updated the calculator to your right, to help you figure out (or double check) not only your Personality number, but also your Expression/Destiny, and Heart's Desire/Soul Urge numbers. Please let me know if you think it's throwing incorrect results for your name : )

In the case of your Personality Number, we are only interested in the consonants of your full birth name.

What about the letter Y? The letter Y is a bit tricky to use. Sometimes it is considered a vowel and at other times a consonant, depending on how it is used and how it sounds within the name.

When to use the letter "Y" as a VOWEL
  • when Y serves as a vowel and sounds like a vowel , or when Y is the only vowel in the syllable (Mary, Carolyn, Betty)
  • When Y precedes another vowel in a syllable and provides the vowel sound (Bryan, Wyatt)

When to use letter "Y" as a CONSONANT
  • when Y follows another vowel, and it doesn't provide for a separate vowel sound (Murray, Hayley)
  • when the syllable already has another vowel (except when Y precedes another vowel in a syllable and provides the vowel sound)
  • when the Y is used in place of a J sound ( Yamaha, Toyota, Yoda)


To calculate your Personality number, assign each consonant of your name a number from the above chart. Do this separately for your First Name, Middle Name (if you have one), and Last Name (Surname). For each of your names add the numbers up separately, reducing them down to a single digit value. When you have the numbers for each of your names, add these up and again reduce to a single digit to come up with your Personality Number. If at any time in your calculations you encounter a master number (11,22, or 33) do not reduce it any further.



Example Calculation 1: John Winston Lennon
Personality Number Chart Calculation John Lennon

John Lennon's Personality Number = 5 + 9 + 9 = 23 = 5


Example Calculation 2: Oprah Gail Winfrey
Personality Number Chart Calculation Oprah Gail Winfrey
Oprah Winfreys's Personality Number = 6 + 1 + 5 = 12 = 3

Note that I have used the "Y" in Winfrey as a consonant.



You might find other charts showing different perspective numbers assigned to each letter. The methods on this website and in the readings I provide are based on Pythagorean numerology system which uses numbers 1 to 9. Chaldean numerology system follows a slightly different system using only numbers 1 to 8 (more to come on this topic at a later date)

Please note that the definitions below are specific to the actual numbers (1 to 9, 11, 22 and 33).

My personality number is supposed to be an 8, but after reading all the personality profiles of each different number, I find that i’m more like a 3. Is there any reason to why that is?

I’m relatively new to the numerology, but there is more than just one number to our numerology charts. Our life lesson number (birth date added up and reduced), soul number (vowels in the full name), Outer personality number (adding the consonants. This is indicating how the outside world views us), and the Path of Destiny number (adding up the full name). So how you’re viewed may be different from what you’re more like. (I’m supposed to be rather conservative, but everything else about me kinda contradicts that. Everything else described in how others view me is pretty accurate. I’m also looking into various descriptions of my numbers.)

Also, it helps to look into various occult to combine them (i.e. astrological birth charts, numerology, palmistry to best have an in depth helpful look within yourself.) 🙂

I would like to know how to interpret the cycle numbers, the day number and The Heart’s desire number? Do you use the information for the Life Path number to interpret each cycle of your life? Do you use the information for the Expression/Destiny Numbers to understand your Heart’s Desire Number and your Personality number? Many thanks. Lisa

Hello,I have a doubt concerning the greek alphabet in numerology. In the time of ????????? (Pythagoras) the greek alphabet had more letters ,that is for example ,there was a letter between E and Z (and others as well)which automatically brings vowels like I and also other letters in alignment with the roman alphabet if you take a close look to it. This makes it interesting and more difficult for us greeks to find out as myself I don’t use the ancient alphabet anymore and any of greeks any more. The thing is that calculations become so different than calculating with roman alphabet and makes you wonder ,”what if the letters at the time of Pythagoras were right and not the ones now?” Makes completely different results while the vowels and consonants come (some )at the same positions with the roman method which makes some sense suddenly. I mean why calculating the l letter in a different altogether position? Which one makes it appropriate?
These were my thoughts hope we find an answer cause this is so interesting.

Hi my birth name is sunit bhatia. Middle name Kaushik but I don’t use my full name other then my bank passport n government id. I recently changed my last name to morarjee. How would it affect my future? Will my destiny be according to my birth name or the new last name I have got now. My bday is on 03/03/84. Sunit Kaushik Bhatia I get 6 6 9 in my destiny expression hearts soul. But sunit morarjee I’m getting 4 11 9. Will my destiny n luck change after changing the name or will it remain as my birth name. Thanks.

I believe that your full birth name may be the one that matters most, because I changed my first name to be more masculine, but then I added everything up with both my current name and my birth name. Despite the fact I dislike my birth name, the readings were much more accurate for that, but then again I’m not an expert at this.

Hi Seventh, I really appreciate my own numerology form that you sent me previously.
Just a curious question though, how does your calculation method differ from affinity-numerology and paulsadowski?

Hi all. My life path number and personality number are both 11. The interesting thing is that when I also look up the meaning of my first middle and last name, they all say the same thing, which is consistent with life path 11. Is this common? What does it mean when both the numbers are 11 and your name indicates the same qualities associated with 11?
Thank you so much for taking time to answer my question.

There should be a difference between me and my Dad.

seven October 3, 2015 at 5:02 pm

I understand that this doesn’t help with those numbers that are derived from our names, but your overall numerological chart is based on your full name at birth as well as your birth date. This will result in a different overall chart from your dad.

What if there is a “Jr” at the end of my name?!

seven October 3, 2015 at 4:01 pm

Hi Gregory, suffixes such as Jr, Sr, or III are not normally used for the calculations.

If we calculate consonant of first name and it count 11 then what we have to do we have to merge with single number or not

Hi seven,

I received my free report a few weeks back and i am quite satisfied with it. when i say ‘quite’ it’s mostly because i am born on the 8th jan 1991. however having a life path number 11 i cant really relate to the characteristics a life path number 11 normally have.is it just me?

Hi Seven, I received my free report today and I am very impressed with it! Until now, I always felt dissatisfied and disappointed with numerological reports, they seemed restrictive, judgemental and wildly inaccurate… but I felt there had to be something in numerology, so I kept searching. I found your site and am so happy I did, your report is spot-on and gives me so much insight into the nooks and crannies of my numerological chart! Thank you so much for an amazing chart and restoring my faith in numbers 😉
