How to Calculate Your Name Number?
Calculating the Destiny Number depends on which numerology system you choose to use. There are three systems in common use at this time: Pythagorean, Gematria, and Chaldean. While each one assigns number values to letters, they vary with some letters. For example, A is 1 in all systems. Q is 8 in the Pythagorean system, 4 in the Gematria system, and 1 in the Chaldean system.
Therefore, the Destiny number of a man named Quincy would add up from the following numbers:
|8||3||9||5||3||7||= 35||= 8|
Q U I N C Y 4 6 5 1 3 2 = 21 = 3
Q U I N C Y 1 6 1 5 3 1 = 17 = 8
As it happens, the Pythagorean and Chaldean Destiny is 8, while the Gematria Destiny is 3.
Regardless of the system used to calculate the Destiny Number, below you are the explanations for each Destiny Number, 1 to 9, and master numbers 11, 22, 33, 44, and 55.

What is the Destiny Number?
The single digit number of your name reveals the energy you attract from others and the world. Knowing your Destiny Number helps you understand why people want you to play a certain role in life.
Unlike the Life Path Number which drives the individual, the Destiny Number is the pulse of energy that turns people in your direction for a specific reason, related to the number meaning of that Destiny.
The Number 1 as Your Destiny
These are the people others look to for maverick integrity, independence, and fearlessness, regularly or in a crisis. Being seen as “the lone wolf” is their Destiny. For some individuals this will be a welcome role, for others a constant source of loneliness. Nonetheless, individuality will be the recurring theme for Destiny 1 individuals.
The Number 1 and Career
The challenge for Destiny 1 individuals is how to learn to join a team or group when others think they want to go it alone. Destiny 1 people can be left out of the socializing and group networking because they are perceived as loners. Co-workers will turn away from this person, thinking they want to do the job their own way.
The Number 1 and Love
Destiny 1 people attract romantic partners who want to enjoy play or and have fun. The romance can be egalitarian (let’s be together in the moment), complimentary (friends with benefits), or very short-term (you are mister or miss “right now”). Regardless, the lesson of love is tied to the lesson of independence.
Number 1 and Family
The parent or child that is a Destiny 1 can will be viewed as the risk taker of the family. It may not even be a conscious behavior on the part of other family members, they will simply look at the 1 and believe they will act fearlessly. This destiny works well if the individual wants to grow through being first and taking risk, but can be problematic if they would rather be methodical and cautious.
Number 1 and Health
There will be a constant pressure to take advice from everyone about health. If a question about health comes up around a Destiny 1, then everyone will feel compelled to give unsolicited advice to the Destiny 1. It will not matter if the Destiny 1 individual is healthy or not. If they are in the room when the issue comes up, people will naturally want to get the Destiny 1 to adopt their health philosophy.
Other Numbers and Their Importance
You also have other numerology numbers that are important and that refine your Destiny Number. No one is the pure embodiment of a number, but the Destiny Number is a foundation number (along with the Life Path and Soul Purpose numbers).
Other important and truly significant numbers include an identity number assigned by your society, like the social security number in the United States. Numbers that form your daily life are important, like your phone number numerology, or the address of you home.
How to Use Numerology in Your Life
Once you become aware of the numbers of your life, you can use them to help you succeed in your career and your relationships. If the 1 is your Destiny Number, then realize that other people will sense you as a 1 and react to you accordingly. We are all pulsing with certain energy that acts on the world and causes the world to react.
