Life path number has been studied and is more popular in the term numerology. Numerology is the study of the special relationship between a divine object, number and life. It has been practiced already for a long time. already our ancestors get to believe in it.
People who practice and believe in it are called numerologists. Some numerologists assign letters to each number. These numbers are first taken from the birthdate of a person taking the test like computing the birth month, birth date and birth year. The product will now give a number or numbers as a certain special life path of the person and will also now produce and say who a person really is. This life path number will say who you really are and why you really are born, your mission and purpose in life. Not all people believe in this certain tradition and belief but most Chinese, Arabs and Greeks believe to it as a very important aspect in their life. They believe that this numerology or life path number will give them and say to them what they are going to do in the future. They believe that there is something destined for them.
There are certain ways and systems on how to discriminate your life path number by numerology. These systems are Alphabetic system, Abjad system, Pythagorean system, Chinese numerology and Indian Numerology.
The Alphabetic systems assign numerical value to the letters of the alphabet then continue to an addition system and a certain solution and there you come out with a certain number. This certain number will now then give you such meanings about who you really are and what your life is supposed to be. For example, if you were born on the twelfth of December in the year of 1981, your number is supposed to be 7 after certain number of solutions. Now if you are a number 7 person then most of your life or your personality concentrates on you being a conscious person and a perfectionist.
Below are the most shared numbers in numerology and their meanings:

2 – Balance, receptive, union
3 – Self-expression, communication
4 – Creation
5 – Restlessness, life experience
6 – Responsible, home, family

Some other systems just follow the alphabetic system and change a little bit. The Chinese and the Indian has some difference since their life path number slightly depends on the solar system specifically the planets. They refer to numerology as an aspect also of astrology.
