Some of you will not be able to find your name or its exact spelling in the dictionary. This section is for you.
It is also for those of you who wish to commit the numerology system to memory.
Anyone can become an instant personality analyst by memorizing the nine generalized number meanings.
The fine points of each letter are explained on the following pages, but general insight comes from thoughtful consideration of the positive and negative aspects of the number value. If you are a whiz at arithmetic or just interested enough to concentrate upon simple addition, all the information a name offers can be yours a few seconds after being introduced to a prospective employer, a new friend, or a blind date.
1. The number value of the first letter of the first name reveals the
strong point or point of view
of the personality.
2. Add up the total number value of the first name for identification of the name's
3. A quick look at each letter in the first name pinpoints the
basic personality ingredients.
4. The last letter of the first name reveals the
personality extreme, or area of conflict.
The number meanings apply to two or three letters, and each meaning has possible variations.
If number 1 (the letters A, J. and S) signifies independence, creative action, and progress through change, then the variations of that definition would be in the areas of leadership, ambition, and
originality. Let your common sense and natural intuition add aggressive, not passive, tendencies.
A word like action hardly implies receptivity or someone who wants to take a backseat. Think about the negatives that these qualities may indicate. The opposites of leadership would be imitation, passivity and fear of creating change. Ambition could negate itself and become stagnation.
All number meanings have positive and negative effects that depend upon the focus of the bearer. III health, mental depression, or even stress may cause a person to activate the negative meaning of a number value. It could affect some or all of the
letters in the name or only the one that is having its button pushed at the moment. As you get more comfortable with interpretation, it becomes habit, and you will be able to add more analysis. Nothing is simple.
People surely are complex and often confuse us and themselves by demonstrating the opposing forces in their nature. The letter/number interpretations reveal these conflicts in the personality. If you have the desire, this is an exact science that is easy to master.
When you use it to your own benefit, "I've got your number!" will become your motto.

To find the Major Talent number, refer to the letter values listed in the Letter Values chart above.
Step 1. Print your first name
Step 2. Write the number of each letter value above each letter. Let's use the name JUSTIN for an example.
EXAMPLE: 1 3 1 2 9 5
J U S T i N
Step 3. Add the numbers. You will probably end up with a double number. Example:
1 + 3 + 1 + 2 + 9 + 5 = 21
J u s t i n
Step 4. Reduce the double number to a single number by adding from left to right.
Example: 12 = 1 + 2 = 3 or 28 = 2 + 8 = 10, (reduce again to end up with a single number), 1 + 0 = 1. The basic rule in numerology is to reduce all multiple numbers to a single number for direct interpretation.
1 + 3 + 1 + 2 + 9 + 5 = 21
J + U + S + T + I + N
2 + 1 = 3
The Major Talent number for the name Justin is 3.
Note: If your name adds up to 11 or 22, you have two number interpretations to read. Read the definitions of 11 or 22, then read their reduced values, 2 or 4, (11 = 1 + 1 = 2,22 = 2 + 2 = 4) to find the practical mundane meanings of spiritually-special master numbers 11 and 22. They have the creative vision to leave a lasting mark on humanity, and their reduced numbers explain their day-to-day aspects.
41494 = 4 + 1 + 4 + 9 + 4 = 22
David = D + A + V + I + D
Read the 22 and the 4 interpretations for the name David.
Here's another example: Jennifer
The Major Talent single reduced number for the name Jennifer is 9.
