Personality tests can be a fun way to get to know yourself, your motivations, and your quirks. The Myers-Briggs personality test is one of the most popular, splitting people up into 16 different personalities. While we all know personality type can apply to our work life and our love life, have you ever thought about the impact it has on your finances?
Since your personality type indicates how you interact with others, perceive the world, and make decisions, it shouldn’t be a surprise that some personalities have common money tendencies, too. Whether you’re an INFJ or a ESTP, we all have financial skills to work on.
Some personalities tend to be more fact-driven and careful, while others take a more adaptive approach when it comes to making financial decisions. How you view the future has a big impact on how you manage your money too. Future-oriented individuals place a lot of importance on saving and investing while other types would rather live in the moment. Even though introverts and extroverts tend to think of themselves as polar opposites, their internal motivations and goals can group them in similar categories.
