Take the quiz and learn how to manage your spending habits
You may not even know it but you have a money personality. What's more, the "money you" may be keeping you from getting to your goals in life. Three-quarters of Americans are stressed out by money, according to a recent poll published by the American Psychological Association1. The good news is: a little knowledge can go a long way. The first step in changing any kind of behavior is understanding your own tendencies. Then you can develop a plan to better deal with spending, saving and investing with a lot less stress.
A big part of this is your approach to risk—and that is one of the most important issues when it comes to an individual’s attitude toward money. In examining our spending habits, academics have had a field day trying to figure out whether an individual's attitude toward money is driven more by unconscious factors, learned habits, intellectual biases or just plain emotion.
So take our Money Personality Quiz. It’s a first step to determining what drives your economic decisions and how to shape them to reach your financial goals.
