    I only spend money on groceries & necessities & bills but I'm bad at keeping up with bills. Sometimes my bills grow larger, since I forget to pay them. &_&

    I am better with money than I used to be, but not great. I need to control my spending on useless stuff and eating out.

    Not nearly good enough to use the term monies.

    Always been pretty good with that. I am too indecisive and fail at impulse-buying. Also, I always feel the need to research the hell out of the product as well as make a pro-con list..

    As a result of all this, I spend money mainly on groceries, necessities and bills.

    I am quite good.

    I never bought into this "INFPs may forget to pay their bills" nonsense. I ensure my bills are debited out of my account on a day where I know money will be in there. It may mean that I can't go food shopping because I forgot the bill was coming out that day, but the bill is always paid. This is a rare occurrence anyway and it usually just means I have to push back something else (shopping, going out, etc.). I am good at budgeting and have been able to stick to my current budget quite well.

    I am also excellent at paying people back. My rent/bill money is always on time (if I am in work!).

    I think the INFP problem is that you work might be intermittent, which means you might be so busy being preoccupied with that that you forget the bills.

    I was HORRIFIC with money for the first 10 YEARS of making it. So impulsive, the last thing you'd ever catch me doing is balancing my dam checkbook. I seemed to be "money optimistic" if you will.. believing that I could just do whatever I wanted when I wanted, and deal with the problems later. I had such a bloated sense of things working out (and guess what, they always did.. but usually for the worse) and it wasn't until I got hit on the head many, many times with the cold hard reality that I started to shape up. I was also able to get really good jobs from a young age, and made more money than most of my friends and some of my family. It didn't matter if I brough in 500 or 5k for the month, I'd squander it on partying, shopping, experiences, etc. Total lack of self discipline. In my late twenties I started to go through a change, because I stared realizing how much I don't really need or value material items. Like I don't really care if I have a big house, nice ride, and lots of fancy furniture. I DO care that I have enough funds to experience what I want, vacation a bit, and collect music and artistic works. Paintings, books, music, and technological stuff (life computers, iphones, video cameras) etc. But alot of the technology is just to stay connected and capture experiences or make artistic stuff with it. TO be fair, I came from a family that did not spend much time directing or advising me about money, and everything I do know now comes from working for finance companies and self research. Thats another thing, I am great at advising others how to manage their money, and I FULLY KNOW how to manage my own money, its always a question of "do i want to?" Impractical priority sysrtem in place. Anyway, now I'm older I've finally come to understand that If i don't make a car payment, i don't have a car. Setting up automatic bill pay for virually everything I am obligated to has helped me greatly. THis way the funds are taken before I can decide that I feel like spending that cash on a trip to cancun instead of the rent ;D And yes, its truly sad that it even has to come to this! But you gotta go for what works for you.

    I think I'm pretty good with money

    My INFP, on the other hand, is kinda hopeless >_<

    So, in the future I'll handle all our finances

    Depends, I worked for my family businesses for free so my concept of making money are different. And my studies went on the shelf for health reasons, admin accounting, business systems and human resources, civil structural engineering. For the last few year I ended up in various retail stores in the biggest stores part time and was expected to become management material. Seems I've been happy to under perform and my passion was missing without a desire to become more financially supported. This may change now that I have found my passion. Do I have savings, assets and much of a super, nope. These are material illusions in some ways perpetuating the belief in security that should this change creates a devastation of magnitudes by the proportion of savings and ability to bounce back. While my family and friends earn big incomes and have property, anywhere from 50k to 100K to 1million per annum in some instances...I make less than 25k. Am I concerned, I used to be, but then I saw my families mirrors, grandpa lost 1million while my father has 1million in assets and is the greediest person you are ever likely to meet too, no holidays or luxuries of any kind.

    I am in the process of reinventing myself so that now that I am aware of both extremes I will be stronger in creating my life without money controlling my responses and people controlling my responses.

    This way of perceiving sounds strange.

    Company website, rival company websites, forums, newspapers, amazon reviews, CNet, magazines devoted to the topic.. I'm trying to tone that down a bit now though. :P

    I don't like youtube reviews, probably because you have to watch the whole thing, listen to someone drivel on and on (or worse, squeel ) and get only one opinion at the end. It takes time, specially when I could instead go on a website, quickly read different opinions and move on. Efficiency.

    My mom (ENFJ) is also good with money. My dad (INTP) sometimes buys things impulsively and other times, sneakily gets me to research things for him.
