33 | New "33" Words Decoded | Aptitude and Quadrant

Today two new "33" words crossed my eyes while driving through a short section of road in Bellevue, Washington.  They were the words "aptitude" and "quadrant".  Let us decode and examine their definitions for any insight into why they might be "33" words, such as say "knight" or "checkmate".
  • Knight = 2+5+9+7+8+2 = 33
  • Bishop = 2+9+1+8+6+7 = 33
  • Checkmate = 3+8+5+3+2+4+1+2+5 = 33
And without further ado, the new words decoded.
  • Aptitude = 1+7+2+9+2+3+4+5 = 33
  • Quadrant = 8+3+1+4+9+1+5+2 = 33
Courtesy of Merriam-Webster is the following definition of aptitude.
a : inclination, tendency <an aptitude for hard work>
b : a natural ability : talent2: capacity for learning <an aptitude for languages>
3: general suitability : aptness 
In other words, "aptitude" is associated with being impressive.   Also, earlier this month Jon Stewart had Hillary Clinton on the Daily Show for a 'career aptitude test'- perhaps a subtle tribute to "33", which television is more than full of.
  • Clinton = 3+3+9+5+2+6+5 = 33
  • Bill Clinton was born Bill Blythe; his biological father, William Blythe Senior, was murdered on a date with a numerology of "33".
Moving on, the definition for the word quadrant; notice how the definition pertains to Geometry, something tightly entwined with Gematria and Pythagoras.
quad·rant
