Life path number 4 is about putting all the pieces together, it is a builder number. You are grounded, serious, hardworking, analytical, practical and disciplined.
People with a Life Path number 4 are the worker bees of society. If your Life Path is a 4 you are determined, practical and hard working. Down-to-earth is a term that is probably often used to describe you. You find hard work rewarding and don't look for the easy way to the top or to finding success. Not only do you work hard yourself, but you expect the same from those around you.
The Fours like to be organized, and to put things back in their " proper place" … it is one of their strong points, and they feel better able to tackle challenges if they have a solid plan in place beforehand. They tend to be set in their ways and are drawn to leading an orderly life ie. "a place for everything and everything in its place." Home is their haven, and if their home environment appears sloppy and unkempt, that is a sign that a Life Path 4 person is not doing well.
They are usually very cerebral and need to find ways to relax their minds. Otherwise, great ideas live and die in their heads. They have a strong sense of right and wrong, are very honest, and value honesty in others. Fours' dreams are based in reality and they never question that you will have to work hard to make them come true. Loyal and very dependable, they make an excellent friend or partner, but may have just a small circle of friends.
On the negative side, Fours can be so set in their ways that they can often come across as stubborn, rigid or too serious. They also have a tendency to overlook tact and let their true feelings be known to all those around them, which can sometimes turn other people away from them. Although practical and good planners, Fours are extremely cautious, and don't deviate much from their master plan, and because of this can sometimes miss opportunities that arise because they don't act on them quickly enough.
