A 60-Second Numerology Quiz To Identify Your Unique Strengths

In Western numerology—a practice created by Greek mystic and mathematician Pythagoras over 2,500 years ago—everyone has a numerology chart made up of seven "Personality Numbers," each with its own insights.

As crazy as it sounds, all you need to discover your five greatest personality strengths are the numbers in your birthday.

How does numerology work?

Every number (and letter) has its own unique energetic vibration. Numerology studies the way these vibrations influence the story of your personality and life.

In a world of polarity (good and bad, day and night), everybody has personality strengths and challenges. By tapping into the powerful and precious resource of numerology, you can discover your natural strengths and abilities to use them to reach your highest potential.

When it comes to understanding your personality strengths, one of the most significant of your seven Personality Numbers is the "Life Path Number."

Take this 60-second quiz to calculate your Life Path Number and find your top five strengths.

Step 1: Add all of the numbers in your birthday together. Be sure to write out your full birth year (i.e., 1969 rather than just 69).

Step 2: Keep adding any double-digit numbers together until you get a single-digit life path number between 1 and 9.

Let's use the birthday March 29, 1969 (3/29/1969), as an example.

3+2+9+1+9+6+9 = 39

3+9 = 12

1+2 = 3 Life Path Number

Step 3: Now, locate your life path number below to find your top 5 strengths. But keep in mind, there are seven numbers in your numerology chart, so all the other numbers must also be taken into consideration for greater accuracy.
