Who are you? How old are you? (in credit years)

Who are you?

We frequently get asked that question and and often talk about what we do for a living but seldom talk about our inner drivers – what motivates us to do the things we do. 

When buckling down to face a financial challenge, like paying off loans or budgeting for a house, we rarely take the time to figure out our money personalities.    It’s extremely important to come to terms with your financial self before tackling the big questions on spending & saving.  The Independent has come up with an excellent financial quiz which helps readers determine their money personality. 

Once you’re ascertained (with all honestry) your personality type,  then it’s time to buckle down to business.  For big spenders,  SpendonLife.com has come up with a simple questionnaire which,  when answered,  will help you gauge how old you are in credit years.   This quiz   helps you ascertain what goals you need to set in order to become a Credit Connoisseur – One who is the Master of One’s Finances (and not the other way around).   At 14 years old (in credit years),  I’m still very much a padawan.   I still tend to be fairly complacent about my bills and haphazard in the timeliness of my payments.   

So,  tell me, who are you?  How old are you?  =)
