Your Money Personality Affects Relationships

Your ‘money personality’ is a behavioural pattern relating to your spending and saving. In a relationship it may appear your Money Personalities clash.  By understanding how opposing types can be complementary in a relationship, you will become a stronger team.

Your Money Personality is rarely just the one type.  The large majority of us are a blend of two and sometimes three.

At different times in your life and depending on circumstances, you will very likely see more than one money personality type in yourself and that’s quite natural. As a result, you’ll probably see a cross over between these – in other words, you can show parts of more than one money personality at the same time. Continue reading
