In numerology, the number 19 is composed of 5 main themes which consist of:

• Self-determinism
• Independence
• Exploration
• Humanitarianism
• Tolerance

The number 19 is both a starter and a finisher. It’s a starter because the digit 1 is a starter. It’s a finisher, because the digit 9 is a finisher. What a 19 starts and finishes is usually determined by itself rather than by a partnership or group.

A person with a birth number of 19 is self-determined, and is primarily self-focused. They may recognize that there is a human need, but what is done about it is usually decided on their own rather than with a consensus.

They are also often alone. Even while working or interacting with others, the self-determination aspect is so strong that they will still feel alone.

The number also contains the ideas of drive, independence, self-sufficiency, exploration, compassion, tolerance, enthusiasm, and a powerful initiative.

## Basic or Core Essence of 19

The core essence of the number 19 is self-determinism. This invites individuality, investigation, and creativity.

The basic meaning of the number 19 is found by reducing the number 19 to a single digit:

1 + 9 = 10

1 + 0 = 1

So the basic essence of the number 19 is similar to the number 1. The number 19 also contains the core of its individual digits, 1 and 9, and the number 1 again.

The core value of the number 19 is a combination of the intrinsic meaning of the digit 19 reduces to, the number 9, and the numbers 1 and 9. Since the number 1 appears twice in its core reduction, it is stronger than it would normally be.

## Further Insight

## What 19 Means Personally

The self-determinism is so strong with this number that you will continually struggle to find the independence that you desire. If you find that a solution or idea is something that has been used before, or is not original to you, you will continue to search until you find a completely original idea. This can cause a high amount of frustration and lack of contentment.

You are very ambitious and have a strong drive for success and power. Although self-confident, you enjoy receiving encouragement and accolades. You have a powerful work ethic which makes you a desirable addition to any venture. People are drawn to your unwavering dedication to your work.

You are a risk-taker and are not afraid to great lengths to achieve what you desire, even if it means a complete change of environment.

Your greatest fault will be your unwillingness to consider the thoughts and ideas of others. You may have a tendency to isolate yourself in order to prove your accuracy. You can also be a perfectionist, and if your ideas or actions fail, you are especially hard on yourself.
