WHAT DOES YOUR BIRTHDAY MEAN?

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…

b6204a0d6654f1c45975259efbf88d5e

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)

  • 2. Shell  |  June 18th, 2013 at 6:37 am

    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 ;)

  • 3. shayna  |  June 18th, 2013 at 6:52 am

    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?

  • 4. Jasmine  |  June 18th, 2013 at 7:12 am

    I just spent WAY too long on that site!

  • 5. Mallory  |  June 18th, 2013 at 7:17 am

    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.

  • 6. Anna  |  June 18th, 2013 at 7:19 am

    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

  • 7. Stefanie // Life on the Squares  |  June 18th, 2013 at 7:21 am

  • 8. Rebecca Lately  |  June 18th, 2013 at 7:24 am

    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.

  • 9. susan  |  June 18th, 2013 at 7:33 am

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

  • 10. Jordan  |  June 18th, 2013 at 7:50 am

    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!

    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!

    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!

  • 15. Madi  |  June 18th, 2013 at 9:10 am

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

  • 16. Melissa  |  June 18th, 2013 at 9:12 am

    Whoa!….totally creepy accurate.

  • 17. kate winsy  |  June 18th, 2013 at 9:13 am

    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!

  • 18. Kendall  |  June 18th, 2013 at 9:20 am

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

  • 19. Miro - Dose of Dash  |  June 18th, 2013 at 9:25 am

  • 20. Jay  |  June 18th, 2013 at 9:25 am

    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!

  • 21. erin @WELLinLA  |  June 18th, 2013 at 9:28 am

    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!

  • 29. bri  |  June 18th, 2013 at 3:08 pm

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

  • 31. Erica  |  June 18th, 2013 at 6:12 pm

    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.

  • 32. Tom Rezek  |  June 18th, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    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.

  • 33. Tom Rezek  |  June 18th, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    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 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.

  • 38. Marta @ What Should I eat for breakfast today  |  June 19th, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    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
