my friend jesse told me about a site called the secret language of birthdays the other day. since then, i have looked up my relatives, boyfriend, and friends and it’s been shockingly accurate! a few things here and there will be off, but overall there has been a lot of true advice (almost creepy how true!) and let me warn you, it will probably point out some not awesome things about your personality too. but you can take it if i can…


it’s a 40 year case study based on more than 20,000 people born on your exact month, day and year. my birthday, january 22nd, goes a little like this…

• “Expressive individuals, they may find it difficult to control their impulsiveness in either their private or public lives.” (geeez, ain’t that the truth)

• “You must find an outlet for your creative energy.” (ok, how about designlovefest.com?)

• “Try not to be discouraged by lack of understanding, ignorance or negative criticism.” (ha, easier said than done. but alright.)

check your birthday here! did you find yours to be true?

    I cant help but feel that as i read it i am trying to associate the findings with my own life. But there are some fun things I’m willing to accept! i.e dancing for exercise, having abstract thoughts and ‘living on another plane of existence’. Yep sounds like me the weirdo airhead!(born March 7th)

    Shell says:

    haha! I found this book years ago at a friend’s house and was astonished by it’s accuracy about aspects of my personality (hello ‘curious blend of introvert and extrovert’). Thanks for the reminder that I am born on the day of the Trendsetters 😉

    shayna says:

    Honestly, I’m always skeptical of these things. They say fortune tellers and tarot card readers, horoscope readers say enough general things that are 80% accurate for most people. That high percentage makes you comfortable enough to disregard the other 20% that is not entirely accurate (but could be) – I even saw an Oprah show on this a while back… That’s exactly how I felt about reading my birthday; It’s about 80% accurate.

    I will say I put in my “relationship match” with my husband and our birthdays are “ideal for marriage” so I’ll take it. Why not?

    Jasmine says:

    I just spent WAY too long on that site!

    Mallory says:

    I checked the birthdays of my husband, mom, dad and myself. They were all the exact opposite of any of us. It said my dad is a free spirit. I actually laughed out loud. He retired from the Air Force after 20 years, and still works for the military in some aspect. I was hoping it would be accurate to see what it had to say about me. Too bad.

    Anna says:

    WOAH! even after reading Shayna’s comment above, I’m still massively impressed. Mine was totally spot on and then so was my husbands. *spends all day searching EVERYONE I KNOW* pahahha

    Bri, love this! My mom’s bday is January 22 too, how funny! ..and this seems true for her. about to go check mine out…thanks for sharing!!

    That’s so much fun! I could definitely be stuck on that site all day. I love stuff like that, and it kind of solidifies something I’ve thought about people. Since I’ve been a mom, I’ve noticed that my friends’ kids who were born around the same time as mine have extremely similar personalities as mine do. Like, their mannerisms and the things that make them tick are the same.

    susan says:

    I’ve had this book since high school (had forgotten about it), and have always found it to be SO accurate!

    Jordan says:

    So interesting! I found some of mine to be pretty spot on. It says that I found solidity in the earth – which I’ve done tons of other personality tests and on an elemental scale (earth, wind, fire, water) I rank the heaviest on earth.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Tori says:

    Interesting! My day wasn’t very much like me. But it was right about me being a very emotional and complex person that is often misunderstood by family and friends! Haha! But it got more spot on as I read the week and the month. Pretty cool!

    Much love from http://myomlife.wordpress.com/

    Rebecca says:

    Ohmygod, what kind of scorer’s magic was that?!!! That was so true Bri!! Very fun/bizarre to read. I mean I’m glad I did but totally freaked out by how accurate it was. I even checked some family member’s and it was just downright correct. Even to the career change my sister was thinking about in private. I mean, spooky!

    Madi says:

    Whew…that was accurate and at times a swift kick in the shorts. But I think we need that now and again.

    Melissa says:

    Whoa!….totally creepy accurate.

    kate winsy says:

    Interesting! I did the ‘check relationship’ for my boyfriend and I. His mother and I share the same birthday and they did not get along when he was younger even though she and I do have a lot of similarities. So the study says these two personalities are ideal for marriage and problematic for family. BAM!

    Kendall says:

    Such a great post! Cause today is MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

    Totally fascinating! This was pretty accurate for me personally and also in the “relationship checker.” Thanks for sharing!

    Jay says:

    My Mom had that book while we were growing up and it’s been a constant in my life since. I find myself frequently going back to it – looking at myself and others. It’s quite amazing, isn’t it?

    Have you tried the feature on the site where you can analyze your relationships? It’s fascinating as well!

    scary accurate! Thanks for sharing!! And ‘Happy Birthday’ to Kendall! (above)

    Kristina says:

    This kept my coworker and I occupied for quite a while today. Haha, thanks for the break!

    not me at all! ok maybe one aspect…

    Erica says:

    we have the SAME birthday! I’ve never met any one with the same birthday!

    kristi says:

    wow! mine was CRAZY accurate! Only a couple things didn’t stick, but its SO right on 99% of the time! Thanks for sharing!!!!

    Laurice says:

    That’s amazing! So many accurate points, like the one where we forget to eat. Haha! Thanks for sharing Bri!

    Hannah says:

    Just about to go and check mine now!


    Lauren says:

    I’m really not into astrology. You can read any sign and make it relate to you…but this is unbelievably accurate! I’m reading about all my friends birthdays and it is blowing my mind! So glad you posted this!

    bri says:

    i agree lauren! i usually am skeptical, but this felt different. it wasn’t as vague…

    Sam says:

    Ahhh this is so cool! I can’t wait to read what my birthday says about me.

    Erica says:

    WOW! That was eerily accurate. Even down to the points I didn’t like that most personality trait studies miss or don’t cover but that I’ve already recognized exist in my life. Well now I know where to send people that don’t understand me.

    Tom Rezek says:

    The Secret Language can be used for relationship analysis – enter two birthdays for a free report! Or buy the iPhone app…

    The year of birth is not needed since the report is based on how people born in different weeks were found to interact in 5 realms – romance, friendship, parent-child, sibling and business associate.

    Tom Rezek says:

    This material comes from Gary Goldschneider’s study of 20,000 people, not from Greek Mythology as is the case with astrology.

    When Gary was 2 years old he was reciting 20 minute poems on Philadelphia public radio. When he was 5 he discovered that his parents were born the same day which intrigued him. From that day on he asked every person he met – What is your Birthday?
    He studied psychiatry at Yale for 3 years then got his master’s in English Lit. at Univ. of PA. When he was 45 he was the first person in the world to perform 32 Beethoven sonatas in a 12 hour concert.
    Gary is obviously a genius.
    The Secret Language material comes entirely from his experience and observations of human behavior.
    I am the co-author of The Secret Language digital version and CEO of Secret Language LLC.

    that’s a cool story tom!

    jess lonett says:

    that’s kind of bonkers in the best way. yikes!

    Elly says:

    So accurate it´s scary!

    JJP Sarasota says:

    I think websites that use light colored fonts are stupid. You have to strain just to read the words. Design is nice but get real, if you want people to read something they have got to be able to see it.

    ok, it was a bit creepy indeed, like reading about myself.

    Adani Sanchez says:

    January 22nd is TOTALLY my birthday, too! Hello, Twin! <3 This is great!

    Patti Murphy says:

    This was insane for me. As a designer I was happy to see my day was “the day of design.” Not that I need the reassurance that I am doing what I am meant to do but that was a solid nod, “yes, you are.” Thanks so much for sharing. xx – P

    Latrina says:

    Wow. That is the most bizarre thing ever… I am a little astonished at how correct is was! Not only for me… but for my husband… AND our relationship. Just, wow.

    Sarolta says:

    Pretty mindblowing!

    Megan says:

    Hmm I didn’t find anything that I thought was accurate for my birthday! 🙁

    This was so interesting, there was a lot of generic stuff but a lot of it made sense! I had to show it to my mum too – I’m a twin so was interested to see if she agreed it was like both me and my sister! x

    Tom Rezek says:

    Watch Tom Hanks, Hoda and Taylor Swift talk about The Secret Language:


    Taylor said it was her favorite birthday present!

    Jen =) says:

    Crazy! It was pretty accurate =)

    Kelly says:

    Call it bizarre, but that thing was pretty accurate indeed!

    Jess says:

    How funny Bri, you posted this ON my birthday! It was creepily accurate, and helped give me insight on myself. thanks for posting! Always find good things on your blog.

    The website said the exact opposite of my personality and it left me unsatisfied… The words used to describe me were inaccurate.

    This is an awesome list! I’m not a very creative person but I do enjoy trying to make my kiddos fun birthday cakes every year and this gives me some fresh ideas- all ones that easy decorate birthday . I should be able to pull off. Thanks!
