Why are 5 and 6 afraid of 7? (Insanity #78)

<- Previous Next ->
Title: Why are 5 and 6 afraid of 7?
Description: When I was in grade school I always had problems with addition and subtraction, not because I was bad at math, in fact I was the best in the class.
The reason is I tend to give personallities to numbers and I always worried that they were being mean to each other.
1= a prankster
2= a dreamer, lost in her own world
3= is kind of butch
4= is a tad immature and is always whining
5= is rather self absorbed but has the best of intentions
6= I'm under the impression that 6 has an addiction of some sort that 5 is trying to help him through it
7= is a loner
8= is rather nice and well meaning, but is never really in control
9= is a bit of a bully

I also gave them genders
Female= 2, 3, 5, 9
Male= 1, 4, 6, 8
I'm not entirely sure about 7.

Well i always give numbers personalities but they change depending how the number was written.
except 5, he never changes.
Because every time i see 5 i (semi) remember the rhyme my 1st grade teacher told us to learn how to write 5. "something something, belly fat, Mr. 5 wears a hat"
So i always picture 5 as like a guy number, who like a fat jazz musician type guy with a hat, and like this deep slow jazzy, almost Barey White-ish  voice thats like "five!"

i always do stuff like that to help me with like multiplication, like 5 is kind of timid, so when 5 is multiplie by 8 he only goes to 4o cuase he doesnt want to make 8 mad, causse he has more power, but 6 is outgoing and kind of a show of so he goes al the way to 48 cause he doesnt care... little things like that, i also have a thing for 6x7 and 7x7.... 0_0

That's so weird, I used to attach personalities to numbers when I was a kid, too. I didn't even realize I was doing it until a few years ago. And I'm 17 XD. So here's how it goes with me:
1 - a good example for everybody else, always helps 2 out(male)
2 - always scared to be left behind, shy(female)
3 - kind of mean, but charming(male)
4 - bitch, always wants to be the best, but almost never is(female)
5 - total jock, but still a nice guy(male)
6 - pretty, vulnerable girl who is friends with 5(female)
7 - always trying to screw 6 over, fights over her with 5 A LOT(male)
8 - fat lady, who doesn't know what's goig on around her, but wise in her own way(female)
9 - energetic, fast-talking, doesn't respect 8 at all, gets annoyed easily(female)

That is in fact kind of weird...

I never thought that numbers had personalities (now that you mention it it's kind of logical) but I thing that they have genders!

1, 3, 5, 7, 9 = Male
2, 4, 6, 8 = Female

I don't know why... :p
