The Special Meaning of Numbers in China(1) 在中國,數字的特殊含義(1)

Yuan Chang-rue, head of the Anthropology Section at the Taiwan Provincial Museum, raises the theory of “ identity supernaturalism. ” He states that Chinese people believe that similar sounds can produce similar outcomes, so that “ identity of pronunciation ” has become the foundation of many allegedly beneficent numbers.
The vast influence of identical pronunciation: For example, in Cantonese the pronunciations of “eight” and “success” are very close, which makes the number significant for Cantonese. But for Fukienese it has no function.
Chinese have many taboos around the similarity of the sounds for “four” and “death”.
The study of names and the nine-boxed-paper, a very widespread belief among ordinary people, involves surmising a person’s personality and fate according to the number of stroke of the pen in the three characters of the same. In the West and Japan, a type of fortunetelling has been developed based on adding together the numbers of the year, month, and day of one’s birth, and using it to assess the person’s fate. Others are able to roughly guess a person’s personality from their favorite numbers.

臺灣省立博物館人類學組組長阮昌銳提出「模擬巫術」的說法,他表示,中國人相信相同的聲音會產生相同的效果,因此「諧音」成為許多所謂吉祥數字的依據。
像廣東人的「八」與「發」音很近,對廣東人就產生意義,但對閩南人卻起不了什麼作用。
中國人對「死」音近的「四」多忌諱。
民間流行的姓名學與九宮,是根據一個人的姓名筆劃數,來判斷人的個性和命途走勢。日本、歐美也發展出一套算命方法,以陽曆西元生日的年、月、日數字相加,最後得出一個數字,再根據他來判斷人命運。也有人能以某人偏好的數字,粗略判斷此人的個性。
