Hoarding – A Spender Gone Wild?

A Spender Gone Wild? A Lesson in Hoarding and Addiction

We love having the opportunity to share our relationship-saving message with people from all over the globe. It’s such a treat to talk to so many people whose relationships have been saved or improved, and always fun to hear the wide variety of individual money stories. Just last week a woman came running up to us, breathless with excitement about the “revelation” she had about her sister.

She told us, “You know what? I get it. I finally get my older sister, because I think I know her Money Personality now. She’s a hoarder, so I’m sure she’s a Spender.”

We didn’t skip a beat before we assured her, “Wait. That’s not the case.”

The difference between addiction and spending habits

There are addictions that invTHEhoarderolve money.

Gambling is the first to come to mind, compulsive shopping and even addiction to savings goes on the list too, but just because someone’s “addiction of choice” involves money doesn’t mean that that their addiction is ANY indication as to their Money Personalities.

People who are addicted to Savings aren’t necessarily Savers and people who are addicted to Shopping aren’t necessarily Spenders.

We could speculate all day long, but we would not be successful at determining anyone’s Money Personalities based on his or her addiction. Again, if a person has an addiction that involves money, that addiction has nothing to do with a person’s Money Personalities.

Addictions are tough. They usually happen because of a deep rooted need, fear, and unresolved inner turmoil. Money addictions will not give you any indications as to your loved one’s Money Personalities.

It is great to see the excitement people feel when they finally begin to understand their Money Personalities, and we understand the temptation to try and assess the Money Personalities of the people around you.

However, the only real, scientific way to determine both of your (and anyone else’s) Primary and Secondary Money Personalities is to take our online Money Personality Assessment and read our book The 5 Money Personalities™: Speaking the Same Love and Money Language.

What do you think about money and addictions? Please tell us your comments or stories at the end of this post…we want to hear them …. we appreciate you!!

Make it Happen!

    I would agree that people have money addictions for all different reasons. I’m often tempted to guess what someone’s Money Personality is, just by what I see outwardly. I know I’d better leave it up to scientific method Dr. Cameron has figured out and ask them to take the Personality Quiz.
