The theme for August posts will be Finances/Money in Marriage, which seems to be a common issue between spouses. This post is a reprint from September, 2020.

Spender. Saver. Risk-taker. Security seeker. Flyer. All ways of how people are "wired" around money.
Even as there are behavioral personality characteristics such as outgoing, reserved, confident, calm, etc., there are also personality types related to our engagement with money and financial management.
Differing money personalities can create disagreements and even major conflicts in marriages, families, groups and organizations. But learning your own money personality(ies) can bring insights and more realistic expectations. Discover your money personality in about 3 minutes through a FREE online assessment that we've developed for use in The RINGS Experience.
In a bit you can take the FREE online assessment and receive immediate feedback through a PDF emailed to you. Money personality categories come from Scott and Bethany Palmer, First Comes Love, Then Comes Money, 2009. Most questions are from Syble Solomon, MoneyHabitudes.
Go ahead, take the assessment.
