THE MEANING OF THE RATIONAL THOUGHT NUMBERS.
Often ignored by numerologists, I consider this an important aspect of the chart. Your Rational Thought number reveals what can probably best be described as the way you think. Are you a practical, methodical thinker, or a dreamer? Do you frequently allow your imagination to color your perception? Are you unconventional and original in the face of a practical problem, or do you stick to proven methods?
This is the kind of information revealed through your Rational Thought number.
You are an independent thinker, original, and not easily influenced by others. You tend to pursue a line of thought stubbornly, and you can be dominating in intellectual discussions.
You tend to solve problems and plan projects with a straight-forward approach. You rarely allow yourself to be distracted. Quite often, you realize at some later stage, that you did not pay enough attention to the available alternatives, and a project may find itself stuck with no chance of further advancement. When you find yourself facing such a situation your frustration tends to be considerable but of short duration. You simply start all over. You do not give up easily.
You take the subtle approach. You allow your intuition to be a large part of your intellectual explorations.
You are open to the ideas of others, and you may be a little too easily influenced. When you consider a project or face a problem, you have a tendency to allow too many alternatives to cloud the issue. However, when it comes to recognizing the many possible variations, and how they may effect the outcome, you are hard to beat.
You have an uncanny ability to plan projects and solve problems which require a large number of people to actively participate, while at the same time maintaining a sense of harmony and unity among those involved.
You are creative, but your thoughts tend to be scattered. You jump around inside your head without much focus. You come up with solutions that reveal an illogical approach, yet they often work.
As it applies to you, rational thinking is a contradiction in terminus. You project, interpret, and analyze your projects and problems in a manner that often leaves others flabbergasted. However, you are unbeatable when it comes to shining new and original light on issues; often coming up with unique answers.
You have this Rational Thought number in common with a number of famous and original thinkers - and the key-word here is original - throughout history.
You are the practical, methodical thinker. You think things through step by step, and you are almost always well-prepared when others question your reasoning.
You may be a little rigid in your approach and you tend to be uncomfortable with new, unproven ideas. You avoid risks, in favor of established procedures. You have no desire to reinvent the wheel.
Others tend to trust your judgments and value your participation, in particular because you often function as the proverbial rock in rough waters. You are a stabilizing voice when involved in team projects, especially when chaos tends to take over.
You have a flexible and adaptable mind. You are quick with solutions, and you can think on your feet. You have the cunning of a fox. You can talk yourself out of the tightest situations, but your priority is often winning the contest, not being right.
You love to reinvent the wheel. You have no fear of trying an approach that seems far-fetched to others.
Your adaptability is unique and you often manage to turn a difficult situation around to make it work in your favor.
You are a listener, and you tend to relate everything to the effect it has on others.
You notice things that escape others, but when you try to find solutions, you often focus on details, forgetting the larger picture. Justice is a major factor in your thinking, many people in the legal field have this number.
When it comes to approaching a project or a problem that requires insight into the hearts and minds of children, very old people, or anyone who is disadvantaged in body or spirit, you have few equals. You are a natural defender of those who can not defend themselves. Depending on the core-numbers of your chart, you may want to consider a career in the legal field, or in the areas of teaching and healing.
You are never satisfied with a simple answer. You tend to delve into all the aspects of a question until you feel you understand the problem completely. Then you proceed to solve it with clarity and without hesitation. Few people are able to compete with you when it comes to finding answers.
You recognize the underlying factors in a problem situation before anyone else, and you are often able to analyze them in a unique and insightful way.
You are a perfectionist and quickly frustrated when you work with people who like to take short-cuts. You appreciate quality more than quantity in any situation.
You are the visionary, and you focus on the larger picture. You ignore the details in favor of spectacular solutions. You love to blow someone's mind.
You understand the balance between the rational and the irrational, and you have no problem combining the two.
You have a vivid imagination and you are often surprised that other don't immediately grasp a concept that seems clear and logical to you.
You have little patience when others allow fear and caution to slow down a project.
You are always aware of the expectations of others, and you hold off on expressing your opinion until everyone has had their say; then you point to the mistakes and the things that were overlooked. Your success in solving problems and in finding answers is the result of a process of elimination, more than it is a matter of stringing together logical answers.
11 Rational Thought
The 11 is the illuminator. You have answers and insights based on the proverbial light bulb. Your Rational Thought number is the most magical and difficult to understand (for others). You have the makings of an inventor, or a spiritual guide. You would do well relying heavily on your intuition. You sense things more accurately than you analyze.
22 Rational Thought
A combination of vision and system gives your Rational Thought number the most potential for success. You can switch quickly from the larger picture to any minute detail that requires your attention at that time. You dream big, and you have the capacity to lay a foundation for your dream that gives clear directions for each step, each little detail, that needs to be take care of. A 22 Rational Thought number can only result from the 11 of the name and the 11 or 29 Birth Day. This reveals a strong intuitive side in you. Premonitions and an intuitive assessment of future effects are strong aspects that can be used and strengthened.
