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, Expression(aka Destiny) Number, Heart's Desire(aka Soul Urge), and Day Number (the day you were born on).

Each letter in your name is given a single digit number, based on the chart below.

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

Pythagorean Numerology Numbers Alphabet Letters Chart

To calculate your Personality number, assign each consonant of your name a number from the 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.

Note: If at any time in your calculations you encounter a master number (11,22, or 33) do not reduce it any further.

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)
Below are couple of example calculations, but you can also use the Name Number Calculator which will do the job for you 😉

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 Numerology Chart Calculation Oprah Winfrey
Oprah Winfreys's Personality Number = 6 + 1 + 5 = 12 = 3

  • Whether the Y in your name (if you have one) should be treated as a vowel or a consonant is automatically determined.

    To force the Y to be used as a consonant, use the asterisk * symbol in its place
    To force the Y to be used as a vowel use the pound # symbol in its place

    If I was adopted and had a different name do I use my birth name or adopted name? And if adopted name, maiden name or married name?

    • se7en

      Hi Darlene,
      This is somewhat of a grey issue. Most agreement is that you should still use your birth name, unless you were adopted at a very early age.

  2. Aubree

    Hello there, I calculated all my numbers and all but my hearts desire, and expression number seemed accurate...
    I got 8 for expression/destiny, 11 for life path, 3 for hearts desire/soul urge, and 5 for my personality number. I was confused on my 'day' number...I was born March 15th, - I wasn't sure if it would be a 6?
    My name is Aubree Elizabeth Nielsen Wallery. I would greatly appreciate any input! Thank you so much in advance!

      first name = J + D + N + L = 1 + 4 + 5 + 3 = 13 = 4
      middle name = H + N + G = 8 + 5 + 7 = 20 = 2
      last name = B + R + W + N = 2 + 9 + 5 + 5 = 21 = 3

      Your Personality Number = 4 + 2 + 3 = 9
