In numerology, our life path number reveals both our inner self and our personality traits. It can help us come to a better understanding of ourselves and the way other people see us. The study of numbers can be a great self-help tool as long as one knows how to use it. This article explores the fourth of the nine life path numbers in numerology—the number four, the hard-working soldier.

In order to calculate your life path number, simply add together the day, month and year of your birth, until you get a single digit. For example, if you were born on April 8th, 1990, you add 8+4+1+9+9+0= 31 = 3+1= 4. Your life path number is 4.

What Does It Mean If Your Life Path Number Is Four?

The number four values stability and discipline more than anything. People with this life path number are serious, disciplined, cautious and always follow the rules. They are down-to-earth individuals, trustworthy and reliable. This number is methodical, organized and sees things from a practical point of view. While other numbers like three or six are more sentimental, number four is almost never driven by emotion. Instead, fours are all about realism and practicality. People with a life path number four hate wasting time: both theirs and other people's. Time is extremely valuable for them. In fact, the phrase "time is money" could easily be their life motto. Naturally, they are very punctual, almost always on time if not sooner. They prefer not to rush things but rather plan each of their next steps carefully. On the other hand, their need to stick to the rules can sometimes make them inflexible, obsessive and controlling.
