A few days back I got a notification that my blog had received 1337 Likes. In spite of my elated state of mind I was wondering why such an odd number should make it to the notifications. So after googling for some time I found out that in the world of internet 1337 means “LEET” which is a short for elite.
So!!!! Thank you all … my dear blogger friends for including me in the elite list 🙂
Anyways… so moving forward… seeing this strange number got me thinking. Unconsciously as well, numbers play an important role in our lives…I think!!!
Do you all have a favourite number ?? When asked to think of a number, is it always the same number? Well !! I do have favourites. And surprisingly it’s not my birth day or that of any of my loved ones or any special day. I am kind of attracted to even numbers. My favourite number is 2. Whenever I am asked to choose a number I always go with 2.
I had never thought about it earlier. Pondering on it now, I think my choice reflects my comfort zone. I am basically a very shy person and refrain as much as possible from taking a lead. And it’s not at all for the fear of failure. Going second does not guarantee success either. But if anybody does a thing before me, I am more than happy to follow the lead. But that does not mean I don’t like winning. I just don’t like initiating. I guess the proactive cells of my body love sleeping more than staying active.
After spending some more time on Google, I also found out that many experiments are conducted on favourite numbers, and apparently there is a universal favourite as well. It is the number 7 as it stands out. So can we say that many people choose number 7 because they want to be unique, or they choose it because they believe it is a lucky number. Several studies have been conducted which show then when we are asked to choose a random number, the process in not at all random in our brains. A lot of logic is applied by our brains in choosing a random number. See!!! and some people think activities like these are futile 😉 It is also found out that when asked to choose a number, majority of the people choose a number between 1 and 10. With the concept of Numerology trending, it has become very common to associate number choices with personality traits. A search of “Favourite number and personality” will provide ‘n’ number of quizzes to gauge one’s personality based on one’s favourite number.
Enough blabbering from me. What about you ? Do such things happen to you guys as well? Do you choose numbers according to your habits or according to your nature or your personality ??
Please share. It would be a fun interaction 🙂
I would love to know about your favourite number and the reason for choosing it.
