CALCULATING THE MINOR EXPRESSION NUMBER.
The Minor Expression number is based on the current (or short) name, the name you now use to introduce yourself including your last name.
The influence of the short name is minor in comparison to your full name. Interestingly, the short name often compensates in some way for numbers (and their related characteristics) that are missing or out of balance in the full name.
For instance, a number missing in the full name may show up prominently in the short name; or a number (or numbers) that appears in excess in the full name can be compensated for in the short name. If a name change takes place later in life through marriage or for professional reasons, it adds or subtracts certain qualities. It can also focus and intensify existing characteristics or talents that may be latent.
As a rule, I recommend that you don't change your name on impulse. Marriage, of course, does not leave much room for choice, although more and more women are hyphenating their names or staying with their maiden names. However, if you must change your name (for professional reasons, for example), try to choose a name already in your family, and thus connected to you through your ancestors. Those characteristics are already present in your lineage, which makes the new name easier to assimilate into your personality.
In answer to some commonly asked questions when it comes to short names:
- The short name is the name you feel closest to in relaxed and social settings.
- The short name is the name you would use when thinking about yourself, including your last name.
- When figuring out the Minor Expression number, never use the middle initial, unless you introduce yourself with that initial, such as: "Hi, I'm Tom J. Hancock."
Names you have used in the past reveal inner feelings and characteristics that were prominent during that period in your life. If you are no longer using that name, it bears no resemblance to your current identity.
To find your Minor Expression number, use the same formula used to find the Expression number, but apply this formula to the name you now use to introduce yourself, including your last name. The Minor Expression is shown in the triangle to the right of the current or short name.
