If you really wanna test it, have someone else do 5 famous people (or people you know) and try to guess which description goes to which person.
See the villain's larger eyes insinuating a just-off-normal perspective on how they see the world? I see signs Lucius Hunt; just not as you see dead people. I am so very happy we saw..each other, and no I will not tell you what color love is. Stop asking.

well the person tying to pair up the results should know as much as possible about the people whose names are involved.

ok let me try to explain this in one post.

it just goes through some arbitrary calculation based on the number of letters in your name, and assigns you a random mix of general characteristics that you are likely to want to believe about yourself. (at the least you will feel like it is right because you want to believe that there is something or someone out there that can tell you something about who you really are and why you're here..its a basic human attribute)
If you really wanna test it, have someone else do 5 famous people (or people you know) and try to guess which description goes to which person.
well the person tying to pair up the results should know as much as possible about the people whose names are involved.
Okay, who is going to pair up the results?
anyone besides the person who knows the results.

Ok the tester will give 5 names of people he knows a lot about (doesnt have to be a famous person..it could even be people he knows) then he gives them to someone to put through the machine. The person who puts them through the machine will take the results and give them (in no particular order) to the tester to try to match them up with the people he named. If he can do it correctly, then the machine works. The most likely result, however, will be that all of them look pretty general and none of them seems to fit anyone exactly. (and if the tester is more interested in seeing if the machine works than he is in being right, he will not go to the website himself to enter the names)

Alright, here are the names-Timothy Bisulca, Katherine Bisulca, Lee Ann Bisulca, Jonathan Bisulca, and Stephen Bisulca.   Run them through and mix them up, I'll have a go at this.

1. Expression provides you a truly outstanding sense of responsibility, love, and balance. helpful and ever conscientious, making you quite capable of rectifying and balancing any sort of inharmonious situation. You are a person very much inclined to give help and comfort to those in need. You have a natural penchant for working with the old, the young, the sick, or the underprivileged. Although you may have considerable creative and artistic talents, the chances are that you will devote yourself to an occupation that shows concern for the betterment of the community.
The positive side  suggests that you are very loving, friendly, and appreciative of others. You have a depth of understanding that produces much sympathetic, kindness, and generosity. The qualities  make the finest and most concerned parent and one often deeply involved in domestic activities. Openness and honesty is apparent in your approach to all relationships.

If there is an excess of this in your makeup, you may exhibit some of the negative traits associated with this number. There may be a tendency for you to be too exacting and demanding of yourself. In this regard, you may at times sacrifice yourself (or your loved ones) for the welfare of others. In some cases, the over zealous has difficulty distinguishing helping from interfering. You may have difficulty expressing your own individuality, because of involvement with responsibilities and causes. Like all with this Expression  it's quite likely that you worry much too much.


Soul Urge number  means:
you want to lead and direct, to work independent of supervision, by yourself or with subordinates. You take pride in your abilities and want to be recognized for them. You may seek opportunities to display your strength and usefulness, wanting to create and originate. In your desire to manage the big picture and the main issues, you may often leave the details to others.

The positive  Soul Urge is Ambitious and determined, a leader seeking opportunities. There is a great deal of honesty and loyalty in this character. If you possess positive  Soul Urge qualities, you are very attainment oriented and driven to success. You are a loyal friend and strictly fair in your business dealings.

The negative side of this Soul Urge must be avoided. A negative 1 is apt to dominate situations and people; the home, the spouse, the family and the business. Emotions aren't strong in this nature. If you possess an excess of 1 energy, you may, at times, be boastful and egotistic. You must avoid being too critical and impatient of trifles. The great need of the 1 Soul Urge is the development of friendliness, and a sincere interest in people.

 Inner Dream number  means:
You dream of being totally free and unrestrained by responsibility. You see yourself conversing and mingling with the natives in many nations, living for adventure and life experiences. You imagine what you might accomplished.

5. Expression endows with the wonderful characteristic of multi-talents and versatility. You can do so many things well. The tone  is constructive freedom, and in your drive to attain this freedom, you will likely be the master of adaptability and change. You are good at presenting ideas and knowing how to approach people to get what you want. Naturally, this gives you an edge in any sort of selling game and spells easy success when it comes to working with people in most jobs. Your popularity may lead you toward some form of entertainment or amusement. Whatever you do, you are clever, analytical, and a very quick thinker.

If there is too much of this energy in your makeup, you may express some the negative attitudes of the number. Your restless and impatient attitude may keep you from staying with any project for too long. Sometimes you can be rather erratic and scatter yourself and your energies. You have a hard time keeping regular office hours and maintaining any sort of a routine. You tend to react strongly if you sense that your freedom of speech or action is being impaired or restricted in any way. As clever as you are, you may have a tendency to make the same mistakes over and over again because much of your response is glib reaction rather that thoughtful application. You are in a continuous state of flux brought by constantly changing interests.

Soul Urge number  means:
 you would like to be appreciated for your ability to handle responsibility. Your home and family are likely to be a strong focus for you, perhaps the strongest focus of your life.

Yeah..and one right out of 5 anyone could probably have gotten by chance. It's not about how well you know them...It's just that the system doesnt really work, once you take away it's ablity to trick you into believing.
