Points It's Essential To Be Aware Of Numbers. We Like Them - We Don't Like Them


With apologies to Shakespeare - "let me count the ways"

What numbers should we love?

data and crime lab stats as on TV shows
telephone numbers
happy anniversaries
milestone markers in our children
test scores
horse races
What numbers can we hate [or dislike]?

school math
body mass index
test scores
sad anniversaries
Some numbers come in both categories because our love or hate sometimes is determined by the specific number!

Numbers in cultures and religions

In certain cultures our age number is assigned once we finish that year as well as in other cultures that age number is given at the outset of the year - beginning on the first day of life. So you age number will differ based on your culture!

In Hebrew, all letters have a very numerical equivalent and each word's number could be the total of these individual numbers - therefore words have numerical meaning as well as the literal meaning. And the Hebrew bible [Torah or Old Testament] carries a book called Numbers.

Particular numbers have significance depending on your beliefs. A few of these are 3, 7, and 666.

Children love numbers

counting games
birthday candles
the volume of cookies or presents
what their age is
just endless reciting of numbers or counting
Teens and Adults develop the love-hate relationship with numbers

Whenever we so love numbers if we are young - how are you affected we commence to dislike them?

Let's start with parents who like to talk about the terrible 2's. Will be the 2's so "terrible" or am i pre-programmed to consider so? And will we pass this on our little ones in order that they start to learn that some numbers are not-so-good???

You have to contain the amorphous "someone" who tells us that arithmetic is hard. I not really know who started this myth however it is a myth. Worse - we tell children that arithmetic is tougher for girls compared to boys! So those numbers learn to go into the hate category.

We love to turning 13! Were teenagers! And very soon we could drive!

We wish to get a's and b's in class and so on the tests that "matter." In the event the numbers are not might know about were hoping or expecting we obtain sad or perhaps depressed. Yet a smattering of us wonder if those test numbers mean anything in the real world outside school. We assign love/hate for many years.

As well as in many countries we love reaching the legal day of driving, drinking and voting or marrying. These are most often good numbers therefore we love them.

Unless, of course, we hate them!

Think about the numbers in your own life and as opposed to having a love/hate relationship using them, imagine whatever they mean for you and why...after which learn to love these! They may be your numbers and they are you!
