    Why?

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

    What numbers do we love?

    birthdays

    data and crime lab stats as on television shows

    phone numbers

    addresses

    happy anniversaries

    milestone markers in our children

    test scores

    lotteries

    horse races

    What numbers should we hate [or dislike]?

    school math

    birthdays

    weight

    body mass index

    test scores

    sad anniversaries

    Some numbers will be in both categories because our love or hate sometimes is dependent upon the actual number!

    Numbers in cultures and religions

    In certain cultures our age number is assigned whenever we finish that year and in other cultures that age number is given at the outset of the season – beginning on day one of life. And that means you age number will differ determined by your culture!

    In Hebrew, all letters possess a numerical equivalent every word’s number will be the total of those individual numbers – therefore words have numerical meaning as well as the literal meaning. And also the Hebrew bible [Torah or Old Testament] includes a book called Numbers.

    Particular numbers have significance determined by your beliefs. Some are 3, 7, and 666.

    Children love numbers

    counting games

    boardgames

    birthday candles

    the volume of cookies or presents

    a comparative age

    just endless reciting of numbers or counting

    Teens and Adults develop the love-hate relationship with numbers

    When we so love numbers when we’re young – what are the results that individuals start to dislike them?

    Let’s begin with parents who wish to discuss the terrible 2’s. Are the 2’s so "terrible" or am i pre-programmed to consider so? And do we pass this to our little ones so they really start to learn that some numbers are not-so-good???

    You have to have the amorphous "someone" who lets us know that arithmetic is difficult. I not really know who started this myth however it is a myth. Worse – we tell children that arithmetic is tougher for girls than for boys! So those numbers begin to enter the hate category.

    We like to turning 13! Were teenagers! And soon we are able to drive!

    We aspire to get high gpa’s in school and also on the tests that "matter." In the event the numbers are not that which you were hoping or expecting we have sad as well as depressed. Yet not many of us wonder if those test numbers mean anything in real life outside school. We assign love/hate for them.

    And in many countries we like to reaching the legal ages of driving, drinking and voting or marrying. These are most often good numbers and we all love them.

    Unless, obviously, we hate them!

    Think about the numbers in your life and instead of developing a love/hate relationship using them, imagine whatever they mean for you and why…and after that figure out how to love all of them! These are your numbers and they’re you!
