Learn About 5 Money Management Personalities That Can Provide You Some Needed Insight On How You & Those Who You May Know Operate
1) Strong Money Manager Personality
Some consumers seem to be natural savers and have a keen sense for wise money management.
They pay their credit card debt in a timely manner and rarely let the balance get to a high level. They normally have a consistent savings plan in place and have some real sense of their financial future.
2) Struggling Money Manager Personality
Other consumers seem to have difficulty saving, have high credit balances and struggle from paycheck to paycheck and they lack the ability to save in a meaningful way.
They have little concern for their financial future as they mainly live for the present or near present.
3) Decent Money Manager/Poor Credit User Personality
Still others can save effectively, yet they run up high credit card balances and have no real understanding of their financial future.
They may invest on a whim and in many cases have no clue of what comprehensive financial planning is and how it can help them attain their goals in the future in a more efficient manner.
4) Non-believing Money Manager Personality
Others think they can’t save, don’t want to save, don’t want to improve their finances and they seem to be willing to take whatever life seems to dish out at them—not looking for or expecting a better future.
5) Highly Informed Money Manager Personality

Observations of Note on Money Management Personality Types:
With all of the above money management personality types I have found that when pressed to explain their credit and financial approach in detail they all have varying answers—but none seem to hit the mark as far as having a true comprehensive understanding of what they need to do in their credit and financial life.
In addition, many high net worth clients did not have an umbrella insurance policy that would have more appropriately protected them and their family from future financial risks.
Learn How You Can Improve Your Money Management Personality…
If you have a money management personality type like any of those mentioned above or a totally unique one—it is important that you realize the type of personality that you have!
I have worked with all of the money management personality types listed above and every type was able to transform their credit and financial situation in an effective manner.
They were willing to try something that was new, fresh and cutting edge and unlike any other system on the market. They were able to find the solution to many of their concerns by looking within and seeing their situation for what it truly was. They then began implementing real steps to address their concerns. It is important that you realize that you can do the same if you are highly committed and you sincerely want to do so.
Those who had an inappropriate money management personality lacked financial understanding in a number of key areas!
On many occasions when those who managed their finances poorly heard their favorite radio announcer, professional athlete or entertainer pitch a financial product they jumped on board in many cases.
However, in many of those cases they did not have other key areas of their credit and finances addressed appropriately.
They then invested in a stock or other commodity with no real understanding of how it would affect the other areas of their financial life.
Before you invest in a stock, mutual fund, gold and other investments you must make sure that you have addressed your finances in an appropriate manner!
Don’t do like many who invest in a haphazard manner—you must address all areas of your finances in a comprehensive manner and then you can position yourself to invest properly for the rest of your life.
Do not do like many and put the cart before the horse—by not understanding the right way to invest!
If you choose to invest without addressing all areas of your finances you may be successful if your investment grows at the right rate. However, realize that it is a dangerous strategy even though I have seen it done successfully by many consumers.
If you decide to invest after you hear a convincing sales promotion that really impresses your heart and mind and you truly feel that investment plan is for you—you must stop—pause—and run through your mind—have I really addressed all of the key areas of my finances appropriately?
It is important that you realize that addressing all areas of your finances in a comprehensive manner and then investing is a wiser strategy if you want to achieve financial success at a high level on a consistent basis!
Final Thoughts on Money Management Personalities
Regardless of your money management personality type you must come to the realization that you can intelligently put a plan in place that can lead to a prosperous future for you and your family!
With the right approach and the right systems in place you can improve your and your family’s credit and finances to a high level!
You can become the answer to your own concerns if you gain the preparation and knowledge that you need in a proactive manner.
As long as you are sincere in your desire to achieve lasting success and you accept your responsibility and you realize fully that you are accountable for your future success you can attain the future success that serves your best interest by taking the right actions in the right manner.
By doing so you can avoid the headaches that those who have a money management personality listed above that works against their best long-term interests have! You can gain the assurance “within your mind” that you can live your lifetime where you can leave worry, anxiety, fear, frustration, lack of effort and excuses behind you in the wind—exactly where they should be!
You must “always” remember that many who struggle financially do so because of a poor or non-existent money management system.
That poor or non-existent money management system is often the offspring of having a poor or weak money management personality!
The good news is that any “money management personality” can be improved significantly by gaining the preparation and knowledge that is needed on a consistent basis!
You must avoid the problems that we have seen many consumers face over the years such as:
- spending more than they earn (you must plan and budget for success)
- not saving enough or not at all (you must have a consistent saving plan at some level)
- living at a level beyond their means (whether spending too much on housing, automobiles, clothing, social outings and the list goes on and on)
- not appropriately saving for retirement (you must plan for your elderly years so that you can live abundantly), and
- lack of self-control (tapping into their retirement and other accounts when it is not in their best interest to do so)
