## 8 Explained: Personality traits.

People who have the number 8 as their Life Path Number tend to be an excellent judge of character.

Furthermore, they have a knack for attracting the right kind of people to help them work towards their vision. As a result, they will often excel in leadership roles in business and in politics.

The 8 is driven to succeed in life and they will work hard in order to achieve their goals.

Unfortunately, the 8 can become too focused on making money. In other words, their need to succeed will sometimes cause them to lose sight of other people's feelings.

Another issue with the 8 is that they can be extremely blunt. Although this can be a good trait to have at times, it can also cause unnecessary friction with others.

## How is this number calculated?

To find the Life Path Number for a given date of birth, you have to calculate the root number. In other words, you will need to reduce the number and break it down until you are left with a single digit number.

11, 22 and 33 are the only double-digit numbers that are allowed. This is because they are seen as master numbers.

### An example using May 9th, 1974.

Take a look at the following example.

#### 1. Reduce the year 1974 down into one digit.

Let's start with the year, which is 1974. We need to break this number down into one digit or one of the master numbers (11, 22 or 33).

In order to do that, we can "break" the numbers in 1974 apart and then do some simple addition.

`1 + 9 + 7 + 4 = 21`

However, this still leaves us with two digits. Therefore, we will need to break 21 down even further.

`2 + 1 = 3`

As you can see, we are now left with 3.

#### 2. Reduce the month.

Now, let's move onto the month, which is 5 (May).

As you can see, 5 is already a single-digit number. As a result, we do not need to reduce it.

So far, we have the number 3 for the year and the number 5 for the month. Now, we will need to move onto the next step and break down the day.

#### 3. Reduce the day of the month into a single-digit as well.

In the case of May 9th, 1974, the day of the month is obviously 9.

9 is already a single digit. This means that we can leave it as it is. We can simply move onto the final step.

#### Final Step: Add the three numbers together and then calculate the Life Path Number.

We now have 3 for the year, 5 for the month and 9 for the day. Now, let's the calculate the final result, which will be our Life Path Number.

Start off by adding the three numbers together.

`3 + 5 + 9 = 17`

Because 17 is a two-digit number, we still need to reduce it even further.

`1 + 7 = 8`

And that's it! We have now calculated the "root number".

We can now conclude that 8 is the Life Path Number for May 9th, 1974.
