Quiz: What’s Your Expression Number?

What number represents your name?

Do you think your name is important? I think we all would like to think that our name defines us in one way or another. After all, many psychological studies have shown that your name impacts how people see you – and possibly how you even see yourself. For example, I’ve always been blown away by studies that show that people are more likely to choose professions or towns to live in that sound the most like their names. People are even more likely to marry others with the same last name. It really shows me what a strong hold names have on us!

Another interesting study I recently read was that the further down the alphabet your surname is, the less likely you are to be successful. I guess I can blame my last name for not being a millionaire πŸ˜‰ Similarly, “royal” sounding names were perceived as more attractive. Do you agree? Would you be more attracted to a William or Kate?

When thinking about names for the quiz I’m featuring today, I decided to step outside of how they sound and start thinking about something else: numerology. In numerology, each name is assigned a number based on its letters. (It’s sort of a complicated system, but basically each letter has a number, and you keep adding the digits together until they reduce to a set of numbers.) What you get at the end is your “expression number.”

According to numerology, your expression number reveals your talents, abilities, and shortcomings. See how accurate yours is withΒ What’s Your Expression Number?Β I recently updated the programming on this quiz, making it much easier to check out other results!

    I got 22 and it fits me well! I am eccentric and diligent. To be honest, I don’t believe in numerology! Numbers are just numbers! I believe more in astrology! I think my name is unique!

    Your Expression Number is 9

    An idealist and humanitarian, you strive to make the world a better place.
    You do your best when you follow your feelings and sense of compassion.
    Deep down, you dream of being loved by many.

    You are capable of much human understanding and have a lot to give to others.
    While you are very ambitious, you never lose site of perspective.
    You have an abundance of creative talents… you just need to tap into them.

    Although you are a giving person, you can become selfish if you are ignored.
    If you are not able to help people, you tend to shelf your talents.
    Without others, you become aloof and start to lack sensitivity.

    This is true, I hate being ignored when I help everyone around me.
    My name, Alyssa, Aly, or even Amy (I really don’t know how I got that name) is very common, but it gets stuck in your head.

    1. My expression number is 9. It’s…medium-accurate. I think the best line was ‘you have a lot of ambitions but never lose perspective’

    2. I don’t know much about numerology, but it’s fun! I’m a skeptic about most things.

    3. My name’s very unusual in the part of the world where I’m currently living, so I guess at first glance it must seem a bit mysterious or have a sort of ‘traveller’ feel to it. Or like a highly pretentious taken name.
