how to find your vocational number

Name numerology can identify a person’s potential and natural abilities as derived from the individual’s vocational number. Our vocational number reveals our natural liking or aptitude for a specific type of work. Knowing this number can help us avoid delays and obstacles in our careers and daily tasks.

Find Your Vocational Number to Predict Your Career

To find your vocational number, you must use your full name. Convert the alphabetic figures of your first name, middle name, and surname into numbers and combine these until they are reduced to a single digit. For example, a professor is named Dr. Ashok Kumar Sen:

Example how to calculate vocational number

Thus, the vocational number of Dr. Ashok Kumar Sen is 8; his name numerology will be deduced from the characteristics of this number.

Dr. Sen was a professor at a renowned college in the city. His academic career was excellent, but students did not admire him much as a professor. The number 8 favors executive work, and people with a vocational number 8 are more successful in management than in other professions. When Dr. Sen was offered the post of college principal, he hesitated.

Ultimately, he took the advice of a good numerologist and accepted the offer, becoming one of the most successful principals rewarded and admired by the administration and students. This example highlights the significance of name numerology.

Please note that we did not consider ‘Dr.’ in the number calculation. Do not count prefixes such as Dr. or Professor when calculating vocational numbers. However, if Dr. Sen was known among his friends as simply “Doctor,” his personality number would be derived from this name (i.e., “Doctor”).

Another question may arise from this example. Dr. Sen was qualified enough to have the opportunity to progress in his profession, but this is not always an option for everyone.

In such cases, numerologists can suggest a second option: change your name slightly or adopt an entirely new name so that your new vocational number matches your profession. In my country, most actors adopt a new name; people know them by this assumed name only.
