Positive Traits of Character Root Number 5

Clear Objectives-Positive Traits of Character Root Number 5

The Character Root Number 5 represents ambition. As mentioned, the number 5 sits in between numbers 1 to 9. Being the middle child suggests he can see both sides of the story and is thus in that position to absorb all the good and bad traits from his siblings. He can, therefore, go in any direction, but he can also choose not to go. As such, he has many choices.

On the positive side of things, a person who is a Character Root Number 5 personality type is one who has an analytical mind. He is also meticulous in his thought process, which you might see in a Character Root Number 4, and therefore a good planner himself.

Being able to lead is one of Character Root Number 5 natural abilities. But this is provided he sees there is an incentive for him to do so and given the opportunity. He leads well with his ability to analyze all angles though he will need lots of information or data inputs. He can then be clear in setting objectives for himself and others.

Some Character Root Number 5 may also be full of imagination and creativity. He may have a good deal of money-making ideas but need to learn to express them and put such ideas into action.

Own Obstacle-Negative Traits of Character Root Number 5

The greatest obstacle for a Character Root Number 5 personality type is himself. He is his enemy, a barrier, or a hindrance to his progress.

People with this number are generally self-centered. Perhaps we might be able to infer that it is because his number is in the center of attraction that he finds himself unique.

You will also find that he can be quite obstinate that he will not listen to anyone’s advice. It is like, if you ask him to go north, he will go south or stay put. He will not easily listen to you or trust you, and he has his reasoning, believing he is right, you are wrong, usually. Such a person will need a lot of proof to convince him and get his trust.

It also means that he can be quite indecisive at times. Frankly, he has far too many things to think about as he is a very logical thinking individual. He needs hard facts to convince himself to act, which is sometimes lacking. All the dots pretty much needs to be connected before he can make a decision.

He may be quite reckless at times as well because his emotions can be easily affected either out of gratitude or out of anger. If the latter happens, he can be very much defensive and blunt with his words.


If you are a Character Root Number 5

The main thing, if you belong to this number, is to learn to accept advice and let go of that ego to be less self-centered. Focus on your positive traits. Know that you are probably a hybrid of all the other numbers, and you are well-positioned to succeed if you can put aside those undesirable characteristics.

Control your temper as well. It is not likely going to be easy for you to do because of your innate nature. But this is something to be mindful of. Things in life do not always go your way. You might feel dejected, and that’s where you need to remind yourself that you are your enemy and pull yourself out of such feelings.

If someone else is a Character Root Number 5

Unless you know you have gained his trust and is genuinely willing to listen to you, learn to leave him alone and let him be. If something is wrong, tell him only when you have hard facts to show.

As he is a naturally analytical person, work with him, and utilize his strengths in this area where he can provide you with excellent analysis and ideas. He might be your most valuable asset if you know how to navigate around him.

Famous People

Adolf Hitler

Adolf Hitler belongs to the Character Root Number 5 personality type, and it is probably not surprising as I was researching famous people with this number.

One might be able to feel it if you know the characteristics of each number well enough (although indeed, sometimes there can be exceptions, which I will talk about it at another time).

His ambition was undoubtedly great, though put into undesirable use with his conquest in Europe. He was able to round up the masses successfully to follow him.

I think anyone would have already know the story of World War 2 to a large extent, and I won’t go through a history lesson, which I must admit, I cannot do this very well anyway.

Some YouTube footage showcasing his speeches as follows. I don’t speak German (so I hope what he says is not overly offensive), but just to get a feel on the vibes.

Powerful speeches, do you think? Could you relate to some of the characteristics of a Character Root Number 5 personality type?

The below diagram shows his numerology calculation.

Maybe some of you might think that a Character Root Number 5 personality type is not a good one, as I used Adolf Hitler as an example. I just want to clarify that this is not necessarily the case. It also depends on the person’s background and what circumstance he has gone through. There are always positives and negatives, or yin and yang to everything. 

Take Mark Zuckerberg as another example. He is born on 14 May 1984 and is thus a Character Root Number 5 personality type as well. The Ambitious one, would you say?

If you have any thoughts, do leave a comment on what you think or share the date of birth of someone you know who has this number, and we can discuss if you will.
