    Probably only if they also have great command of Si.

    However, I grew up and started living in the real world, and realized that I LIKE MONEY VERY MUCH. Money is an energy force that needs to be respected for what it represents and should be treated with care, and if you keep saying it doesn't matter, don't be surprised if this screws you over energetically at some point in life.
    Don't worry; I am learning that right now. You speak the arc words of my year. First foot moving into that real world right as we speak. Learning the embarrassing truth of where spending your youth holed up in yourself leads (feely withdrawn type ololol). That whatever my first instinct is about money/resources, this isn't my time to be saying it. It's my time to listen.

    Your story was a privilege check that hit in the right place.

    you do realize we then spend money on the possibilities, right?

    sometimes they pay off and make more money, other times they don't... in fact being risk-inclined tends to mean most of the times they don't - throw a hundred hero's at a goal with 20% of success, your probably not going to get many survivors. we can miscalculate investments by seen potential utility that the market doesn't support, we can underastimate problems and overastimate our own ideas, we can make money on one thing and then throw it all the next... possibilities are a dangerous business.

    These two:
    Ni: Spend elegantly and tastefully
    Fi: Money matters least to this type.


    I'm actually decent at saving too, but not a penny-pincher or anything you could call frugal.
    The idea of "natural saving" hits home. I don't have to budget really, I just sort of "know" & end up accumulating a savings & have it available for what I need. If this is some kind of "intuitive" way of saving, a kind of method to the madness, then yeah I can see the connection to Ne.

    I'm not understanding why some are turning this into a cognitive functions test. It's only about the dominant function, and it's only providing a clue, not an answer.

    Money makes me anxious. I want to not care about it, but I feel obligated to. I credit this to the never-ending civil war between my Si and ADHD. The qualities and things I tend to value are precisely those which are difficult for me as a result of my fickle ass executive functioning, resulting in anxiety. Whether that's "right" or not, I don't know, but it makes sense to me.

    I don't actually plan or budget, instead, I sort of just know (or think I know) how much I have to work with. I can be somewhat impulsive with my money (impulsive meaning: buying a $5 latte instead of regular coffee, or getting takeout when I could make myself dinner, etc--nothing crazy) when I have a good amount of it available to me (before the bills are due each month). Somehow, I have never been late on a payment, and I always have enough for the things I need, but I don't have much in my savings account, and basically live paycheck-to-paycheck. I make sure to do extensive research for big purchases, but I don't do that for smaller things. I think my spending habits have a lot to do with how I live right now. I know that my current way of doing things isn't going to fly once/if I'm to become more independent.

    Not sure what to make of this.

    What does "natural savers" mean? How is it different from "plan and save"?
