Learning style: visual learner

With a SoleNumber 4, you process information primarily through seeing. Visual learners like to read the information, rather than hearing about it, and you need visual aids, such as illustrations and photographs to interpret information. 

Painting, drawing, and the use of colour assist in your learning process. Visual learners are really good at using maps and have a great sense of direction.

Thinking style: logical linear thinker

In the process of learning, understanding and gaining knowledge, the thinking style for SoleNumber 4 is logical linear, rather than whole thinker. 

You are analytical, sequential and rational, and respond to data and cold hard facts. You like step-by-step instructions and need to understand what the expected outcome will be.

Creative process: 

With a SoleNumber 4, your concepts and ideas are progressive and based on a backward-looking, factual foundation. You looks at what others have done and use these external stimuli to create. 

Fostering creativity within yourself includes looking at many examples and ideas. For example, if you were creating a map, you would benefit from examples of maps created by others. This stimulates your ideas and encourages you to build on what you see.

Experiencing time: 

You experience time as ā€˜one step at a timeā€™, in a logical progression, with practical detailed awareness, rather than ā€˜all at the same timeā€™. Your subjective experience of time is that one event follows another in succession and when the event is over, it becomes a memory. Time has an order to it and SoleNumber 4ā€™s memories include a surprising amount of detail.

For those who experience time ā€˜all at the same timeā€™, their subjective experience of time is that they are not always discerning about which event or memory came first. Sometimes, they have little distinction between past and present events. Their time perception is often that ā€œeverything that has happened and everything that is happeningā€ is happening now.


Rhythm of the Tao:

The Tao is the natural order of the universe and keeps the world balanced and flowing.  Thunder energy is the Tao energy that matches SoleNumber 4.

When light and expanding, Thunder energy represents power and connection; it denotes release and heralds nourishment.

When dark and collapsed, Thunder energy is abrupt, loud, too powerful and chaotic. 

Your SoleNumber 4 embodies the natural energy of Thunder.


Knowing this, contributes to understanding yourself at a deep level, and helps you to become the best version of yourself that you can be. Walk the path to purpose and a beautiful life. 

The day that you were born is a remarkable day and there is an energy that is carried forward into your life. Your SoleNumbers help guide you in life and contain remarkable insights into what drives you and what makes you great.
