Master Your Money Type: Using Your Financial Personality To Create A Life Of Wealth And Freedom – Hardcover
In this extraordinary ground breaking book, personal finance guru Jordan Goodman helps readers classify each individual investor into a ‘Money Type’ and describes how that profile can help anyone attain the wealth they desire.
A former long-tenured Money magazine reporter, he tackles the money issue endemic to Americans according to six psychological types–Strivers, Ostriches, Debt Desperadoes, Coasters, High Rollers, and Squirrels. Each profile is based on the emotional effects of money, whether that involves indifference, its use as a measure of success, or high tolerance of risk.
So these psychological examinations feature strengths as well as weaknesses, initial attitudes and suggested changes, individual/couple financial snapshots and anecdotes in narrative and in sidebars, quizzes, and summaries of actions to take. Names are unusually descriptive; Debt Desperadoes are measured by the number of maxed-out credit cards, whereas Squirrels are averse to any spending no matter the reason.
