You are what you are – know thyself, and thy weaknesses
Your personality affects your finances.
Your hopes and fears, insecurities, coping mechanisms (yes, you have them), and fantasies all play out when it comes to managing your money.
For some people, being frugal savers comes naturally while others easily shop ‘till they drop.
Some plan meticulously, while others live like there’s no tomorrow.
