Do It Yourself
also called Outer Personality number, is derived from the consonants of your full name. Your Personality is like a narrow entrance hall to the great room that is your true nature. It is those aspects that you feel comfortable sharing with people at the outset of a relationship. With time and trust, you invite others into the deeper aspects of your nature; you reveal more of who you really are, in effect, your Heart's Desire, Expression, and so on.
Your Personality number indicates how others perceive you. This is no easy task. No one can be objective about himself or herself. Even our closest friends and relatives have trouble describing how they see us.
To find your Personality number, add the numerical value of the consonants of each of your names in the same manner as described earlier in the Expression and Heart's Desire.
If at any time you encounter a Master number, 11, 22 or 33, do not reduce it to a single-digit number.
Let's use Thomas John Hancock as an example:
(Always place the numbers for the Personality below the name in a numerology chart.)
The name Thomas has four consonants with the values of 2, 8, 4, and 1, which totals 15. Fifteen reduces to 6.
The name John has three consonants with a combined numerical value of 5
The name Hancock has five consonants, which total 3
For the numerical value of each vowel, see the listing below
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 discriminates in the kinds of people and information you let enter your heart and mind. For this reason, your Personality is usually much more narrow and protective in its definition than the real you. It can screen out some of what you do not want to deal with - people or situations - but it also welcomes those things that immediately relate to your inner nature.
Fortunately or unfortunately, this narrow entrance is the first impression people get of you. It either welcomes and intrigues them, or it causes them to lose interest.
