    Default Monthly budget distribution and mbti, personality type and how those spend income?

    Looking for some data on how different types spend their income.

    If the same salary is given to the 16 personality types and they all own a home, how their yearly average spending would look like on a report?

    Would the ENTJ buy a couple of Rolex? Would the ISFP spend 40% on gourmet food?

    Please report about your case and about those you know well.

    How does your yearly spending looks like? You can give us some examples as well.

    Ughhh I hate budgets. I just make sure I don't spend more than I make. I don't have a lot of needs, so it's not very difficult to do that and still have some left over.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    The average ENFP probably can't answer this. Unless they're actually interested and then they can answer it the best. I'm the first type. I know that housing is my number one expenditure, but I'm sure that's not what you're looking for.

    Honestly, it depends on the salary.

    If it's a decent, average one, then everything would be balanced based on future needs, current needs, future wants, and current wants, all in that order.

    A salary based on what I absolutely need.. I don't need much at all. I'd just downsize to be able to compensate for the first three things.

    Ohhh interesting.

    I have little interest in material possessions so i don't seek a large income to supplement my needs. I'd say about 65% goes on bills, rent and food, 10% clothing and 10% miscellaneous and the rest go into my savings account. This is only a wild guess though.

    Yeah -- I'm the same way. I find keeping track of that sort of thing, much less using a "budget" to rule my life, pretty soul-crushing. So I don't. I make sure to prioritize saving for retirement, paying down my mortgage, maintaining a "rainy day fund", and paying my bills in full and on time, but other than that, I spend as little time on financial matters as possible. Like gromit, my needs are pretty simple, so I don't have a lot of trouble maintaining my savings in light of that.
