Money Color – Green
Knowing your “Money Color” will help you better understand how you value money. Most people will be able to identify with some aspect of all of the Money Colors. If that is the case, then you may have competing money values. However, the one you identify with the most is considered your dominant Money Color.
Your money is a resource to assist you in reaching your goals and getting the things you need and want. If your values of how you use money prevents you from reaching your financial goals, consider changing your money habits. You can change your habits once you become aware of them. The colors are random but the values are well defined. The Money Colors are Yellow, Green, Red, Blue, and Pink. Green is the subject of this post.
Green – Money is valued for the status it provides.
You, are more likely to:
- appreciate something if it is considered prestigious (clothing brand names, neighborhood, driving the right kind of car)
- over-use credit and over spend
- impulse shop for a rare item
You are less likely to:
- shop sales, compare prices or look for bargains
- consider the cost of an item as long as it is the right name brand
- be concerned about the price, especially if it is an investment and will appreciate in value
“Keeping up appearances” is an appropriate mantra for people with Green as their Money Color. Their identity is based on what they have, and they will spare no expense to appear that they have it all. They want things now, so delayed gratification is not an option for them. There is not a second thought about using or abusing credit. As long as you have money, then you will spend it on what is important to you. If your Money Color is Green, what changes do you need to make? All the best!
