What Does 'Number Fortune-Telling' Reveal about You?
In order to change yourself for the better, you might start by identifying your own faults based on your date of birth. It’s hard to believe the new year is upon us. For many people, the start of another year signals that it’s time to make a new set of resolutions to become a better and more successful person in the months to come. But in order to reach your ultimate potential, you must first be able to look at yourself objectively and identify your own faults so that you can change yourself for the better. Some people no doubt already know where their weaknesses lie, while others may need close family or friends to explicitly spell them out.
If you’re having trouble identifying your own areas of weakness, you may be able to help yourself by using this simple Japanese method of analyzing your birth date and find your corresponding shortcomings. Even if you don’t believe in astrology or numerology, it’s still fun to give it a go just to see how accurate the method is at predicting your own traits! Here’s the simple method of identifying your faults:
1. Write out your full date of birth using numbers only.
• The order of the month/day/year is irrelevant, as long as you write the full year.
• For example, a person whose birthday is on December 20, 1991, would write 12/20/1991, or 12201991 without slashes.
2. Identify which numbers between 1-9 are missing from your birth date.
• Ignore any zeroes in your set of numbers.
• For example, we can see the numbers 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 do not appear in the set of numbers 12201991 for someone whose birthday is December 20, 1991.
3. Scroll down to read what each of the missing numbers signifies about your personal shortcomings. A piece of cake, right? Okay, now go ahead and calculate your own missing numbers, then see what each of those missing numbers says about you and how you can fix those faults!
If you’re missing the number 1: You excel at consideration toward others, but you’re not very good at thinking or acting independently. Similarly, you have a tendency to do exactly what others tell you to do, which could lead to unbalanced relationships. Try not to let others influence you as much. (Note: Only those born after the year 2000 will fall into this category.)
If you’re missing the number 2: You’re a bit spontaneous and self-centered and perhaps sometimes a bit reckless. At times you may be what is referred to as “KY” (kuki o yomenai in Japanese), someone who "can’t read the air"; i.e., who can’t take a hint or pick up on social cues. Try to work on understanding the feelings of others.
If you’re missing the number 3: People missing the number 3 are extremely stubborn and hate losing. They may be a bit impulsive or act before fully thinking things out. If you fall under this category, be careful that your spontaneity doesn’t cause any misunderstandings.
If you’re missing the number 4: You probably have a hard time working slowly but steadily at goals, losing focus especially when there are more enjoyable options at hand. Don’t be easily swayed by your emotions, especially when it comes to managing money.
If you’re missing the number 5: Indecisiveness is the name of the game here. You tend to consider too many things at once, which then causes you to take a long time to make any final decisions. Focus on trusting your instincts to make decisions and stick to them.
If you’re missing the number 6: If you’re missing the number 6, you have a hard time revealing your true self to others. You may also experience anxiety around strangers or have trouble interacting with the opposite sex. It’s likely you were easily influenced by events during your childhood and by the actions of your family members. Work on not being afraid to express your own ideas in the presence of others.
If you’re missing the number 7: You’re generally pessimistic about life and have no aspirations or motivational drive. Yet despite the negativity, you somehow manage to get by with unnaturally good luck and people still seem to gravitate to your side. It wouldn’t hurt to be a bit more optimistic at times!
If you’re missing the number 8: Laziness and procrastination should be familiar words to you. Furthermore, you tend to perceive things intuitively without a lot of logic. Try to work a bit more consistency into your daily life and don’t make everything out to be such a hassle.
If you’re missing the number 9: You’re exceedingly realistic to the point you hate the thought of chasing after ideals. You think it’s pointless to aspire to change yourself; maintaining the present state of things is the most important thing in life. It’s also difficult for you to accept different values and you tend to make only surface-level relationships. Work on being more flexible in your thinking. (Note: Again, this category is possible only for those born in the year 2000 or thereafter.)
Does this "number fortune-telling" hit the nail on the head? Nonsense or not, it makes for a fun party game!
