Ever wondered why you have certain personality traits that others don’t?

You may be more optimistic, caring, driven or quiet than most, but why is that?

Turns out, it has a lot to do with the day of the week you were born.

Ask your parents which day you were brought into this world (and if they don’t know, use THIS calculator), then scroll below to discover what it reveals about you.


If you were born on Monday, you tend to be a bit sensitive and emotional. Luckily, you know how to best manage your feelings. You’re truly empathetic and caring, always there when your loved ones need you. You’re family-oriented and nurturing, so you’re definitely the “mom” of your friend group. While you try your best to make sure everyone lives their happiest and healthiest lives, you know that there is only so much you can control. Being overbearing isn’t going to do you or those closest to you any good, so you know when you need to step back a bit and let them live their lives.

Being born on Tuesday means you’re a pretty energetic individual. Much like the Energizer Bunny, you just keep going and going and going and going. There’s really no stopping you when it comes to anything, because ain’t no rest for the wicked. Not that you’re wicked, you just aren’t about sleeping or binging the days away. You’ve set a lot of goals for yourself, and thanks to your work ethic, you achieve them quicker than most. But when things don’t go as planned, your impatience rears its ugly head. Nevertheless, you know your gumption and determination will pay off.

You’re deeply curious, Wednesday baby. You’re known to ask a ton of questions, because you just want to know why everything is the way it is. Nothing will stop you on your quest for knowledge, nothing. You’re a pretty adaptable person, always able to hold a conversation with anyone you meet. You can be a bit scatterbrained, but you make up for it with your ability to learn quickly. You don’t let much get to you, which others admire. When something doesn’t go your way, you just shrug it off and move on.

An optimist through and through, people respect your uplifting and motivational nature. You always treat people the way you want to be treated, which leads you to making many friends. Just about everyone loves you the second they meet you.You’re also a great leader, because you know exactly what to do whenever a problem arises. Your guidance is always requested. Because you tend to get bored easily, you’re always traveling to far off places. You can’t stay still for long, so you need to explore the world to keep yourself satisfied.

Because you were born on Friday, you’re known for your creative skills. Whatever medium you choose, you excel at it. There’s no one more artistic than you, that’s for sure. You’re fascinated by love and beauty, so you need to be surrounded by that in your life at all times. You have no problem treating yourself to a nice spa day or luxurious handbag. Material pleasures are your weakness. You’re greatly concerned with what others think of you, always doing your very best to please them. Ultimately, you just want to be revered by all.

A Saturday birth day means you’re responsible and serious. Your time-management skills are unparalleled. This makes you a bit of a perfectionist, but you always adhere to your exceptionally high standards. You’re thoroughly confident, never too concerned with what others think of you. The only issue is, others often don’t. This is why you tend to face difficulties when it comes to trusting others. You know you can count on yourself, but the same can’t be said for different folks in your life.

Your personality is strikingly vibrant, if you were born on Sunday. You’re positive and generous, always willing to help those in need whenever you can. All you want is for everyone to be happy. While you are often surrounded by others, you love nothing more than spending some time alone. You’re definitely an introvert, opting to stay in rather than go out whenever the choice presents itself. This is why you’re totally independent. You have no problem doing things on your own when your three friends are busy doing other things.
