“Numbers rule all things.” – Pythagoras 580 – 500 B.C.E.
The study of number symbolism was described by Plato as the “highest level of knowledge.”
Pythagoras believed that numbers had souls and magical powers.
The Pythagoreans classified numbers into two categories: odd and even, male and female, light and dark, and so on.
Around the world, numbers are being used in superstitions, religions, and mythology.
The meaning of numbers has always played an important role and will always be a part of our daily lives.
Trivial fun facts can be entertaining for anyone who has a favorite number. The question is, do you have a number that means something special to you? If so, how important is it in your life? Is it a source of harmony or stress? Numbers can be both exciting and mystical. Numbers are also entertaining to play with. For centuries, people have been fascinated by the meaning of numbers.
The study of numbers, shapes, and related structures is known as mathematics. Number mysticism belongs elsewhere and is commonly referred to as numerology. Numerology explores the inner workings of the human mind but little about the rest of the universe. Meanwhile, mathematics shines a light on most of the universe but, as yet, very little on human psychology.
What does your favorite number says about your personality? Here what it is:
In most cultures, being number one is associated with being the “best.” The number represents confidence, and you are most likely a strong leader with an ambition. 1 lover is brave, but they can also be selfish and demanding. 1 is the number of the loner, or someone who refuses to follow the crowd.

Individuals who prefer the number two are intuitive and emotional. These individuals can also be extremely shy and easily overwhelmed by negativity.

Numerology can be an entertaining way to learn more about yourself. What number you choose as your favourite can reveal aspects of your personality that you may not have realised before. Was your number a perfect match for you?
Please keep in mind that you should only combine your findings for numbers in the double or triple digits (if 18 then 1& 8 can apply to you or either 1 or 8). If you choose a number because it has personal meaning to you, such as a birthdate or someone’s age, it will be meaningful for that reason rather than the numerical significance. Does it apply to you? Please let us know.
