The role of money in your life is one of the aspect of knowing your Financial Personality. Your Financial Personality also shows your attitude and behaviour in a certain things. On how you think about money and your behaviour towards it. “Knowing your financial personality may help you change your financial behaviours for the better, says Dean Deutz, a private wealth consultant with RBC Wealth Management-U.S. in Minneapolis.” Sometimes we are changing our attitudes and behaviour to someone because of money issues. There are times that we can’t control ourselves in spending our money. And there are some of people who usually borrow money, maybe because of shortage, but others do it to buy unnecessary things. In my previous articles, I told you that it is okay to borrow some money and risk it but do it for essential things only or for those things that will surely help you gain more money more than your debt. But if you always borrow money and make it as your habit, stop it right away. That is not good for you and can destroy your Financial Success.

Spenders are the kinds of people who prefer to enjoy their money too early, the reason why they worry in the future. They don’t save much money and tend to borrow. There are some spenders who became casual borrowers. Casual Borrowers are those people who usually borrow money for unnecessary things that leads to heavy debt. It is not advisable to everyone especially for those people that don’t have a sustainable source of income. Also, these behaviour is not good and might lead to bad image towards you. Borrowers usually seen as irresponsible and untrusted kind of person especially if they see you spending too much money in unnecessary things. Instead of allowing you to borrow money for important things or time of emergencies, they will not give you because of breaking their trust. Lastly, the sharers. Those are kind of people who wants to share their money with their family, friends, organizations, and charity. They want to help people who needs a financial support.
