    Anything involving ENFPs. Fiscally speaking I should avoid them like the plague.

    Dish out the details! People need good lessons to learn from.


    As for myself. These past couple of years have been a blast. Money burns better than anything else. My investments on the stock market went down 70%. It wasn't that much but yet, 70% more than I have now

    If you have some extra cash to burn, turn to me

    I'm good with money. I shop a lot, but I know how to find deals.

    EDIT: Haven't gotten to the worst decision yet. Hopefully never will!

    Getting horses? Seriously, I love them to bits but they sure do eat a LOT of money!

    Stating my design business, which sucked all of my savings, put me into debt, made me late on my rent & behind on my car payment (I am NEVER late with bills), and has caused me to have to move back in with my parents.

    At least I'm getting a positive response on the resume I am now pumping out in order to get a job. People are impressed I had my own biz for awhile and pretty understanding about how it failed in this economy. Now just to get a decent job offer....

    Buying a house. Fortunately I haven't lost nearly as much value as many people have in the "housing crash", but looking at how much I've spent in interest (even trying to pay it off early - as much as I can) just makes me sick. I've had it for 5, going on 6 years now, and I've easily spent a full year's salary solely on interest (yeah - I've saved a small percentage of that back on taxes). In my mind, that's just burning money.

    I was pretty happy in my little apartment (don't get me wrong, I'm happy in and *like* the house too), and it was dirt-cheap. I'm single, didn't have a lot of stuff (the house was 60-70% empty for the first 5 years I lived here), and so didn't really need the extra space. Most of the other positives in a house (insulated from neighbors, yard, etc.) don't really apply much to me - I'm not a hang-out-in-the-yard type, don't garden or have large parties that might bother the neighbors, etc. I think a house *can* be a good use of money... but for me? I'm leaning towards no. But done is done, and I'm sure not about to try to sell it in the current climate .

    They always say that houses are a good investment and will appreciate in value - which may be true (even after the recent loss of value), but that increase is never going to even come close to the amount of interest I'll have paid - not to mention the fact that if I'd saved the money instead *I'd* be the one getting interest on it. And I haven't even had any large maintenance costs... yet.

    I lost a 5 dollar note when I was 12, man I was gutted, I searched for it the whole of lunchtime.
