An Executive Summary of the Universal Characteristic
Method of Human Profiling (UCMHP)
Dr. Alvin Ang

Abstract The Universal Characteristic Method of Human Profiling (UCMHP) is a numerical method used to profile
individuals’ character based on their birth dates. This method is claimed to be used widely and is also said to be accurate
and robust. This paper is a concise yet critical summary of the UCMHP.
