Your 'chosen' number will actually always be a multiple of 9. Take a look at all the symbols associated with each multiple of 9.

Well it doesn't work for an old cynic like me. You must be pure and true, Novita. I think it only works for people like that.

Take a look at the symbol next to 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72 and 81. Notice anything?

And for your examples
8: not a two-digit number.
11 gives 1+1 = 2. 11-2 = 9

Some more examples:
37 gives 3+7 = 10. 37-10 = 27
49 gives 4+9 = 13. 49-13 = 36
99 gives 9+9 = 18. 99-18 = 81

Pray to the God of Nines, for He has quite a nasty temper and will smite you if you don't believe.

It doesn't. If it was really well and truly psychic, why does it not just ask you to think of a number...any number? Why ask for it to be manipulated? It has to do that because it wants you to end up with a number that is a multiple of 9, that's why!

I really don't know how to express it any simpler...I'll try, but failing that, I think you should go with Manc's explanation instead!
