How does your type affect how you handle your personal finances? What ways does it help? What ways does it not help?
For myself, I am very frugal. I love finding alternate uses for everyday objects and I really enjoying paying next to nothing for anything. I rarely shop retail as I enjoy the "hunt" for something that has not been mass-produced within the past ten years or so. My home is wonderfully eclectic and I have always enjoyed surrounding myself with things that seem small but have great symbolism for me. Almost everything in my home has a story. (I am trying to think of some existential reason for the dust-grizzlies under my desk though). I am far from the affluenza crowd.
However, when it comes to setting money aside for retirement: . Although I am future focused, I am future-reality challenged. And I work with the elderly and broke! What gives?
I am very curious to know how other folks feel their type affects what money means to them ...
