“A conservative is a man who has plenty of money and doesn’t see any reason why he shouldn’t always have plenty of money”.
I did a radio show last month on Type and Money and I received such great response I thought I would cover it in my Type Tip Tuesday’s (for more information or to sign up for my Type Tip Tuesday’s please go to my website www.jessicabutts.com) for the next month. The article I am referencing is http://www.learnvest.com/2013/01/what-your-personality-type-means-for-your-money
We will break it down into four categories and how these four groups FEEL differently about money and how those feelings can affect your relationships.
Today we will focus on:
Myers-Briggs Types: ESTJ, ESFJ, ISTJ and ISFJ
SJ types are conservative by nature, I call them the “Police Officers”, an archetypal view of the type (see past TTT). They are reliable, structured planners and often make very responsible choices with money.
“They think ahead, make sure their future is taken care of, buy the same brands and shop at the same stores,” Linder says in the article, noting that they are careful caretaker types.
It may sound like this is the ideal way to be, but the case that first interested Linder in the study of personality types was actually an extreme Protector. “He was a conservative guy financially, but he got very emotional at the idea of spending anything here and now,” says Linder. “It was difficult for him to let go of this idea of a perfect future, even to take advantage of minimal-risk investments–or schedule a vacation.”
This, he points out, can lead to all sorts of problems, not the least of which could be marital discord. According to Linder, Protectors make up about 38% of the population.
If You’re a Protector: Although it may seem like being a Protector is a recipe for success, this personality type can have a lot of trouble with unanticipated change– and make bad decisions out of sheer panic.
