Sometimes I like to take silly quizzes when I’m bored. Especially the ones which try to figure out the essence of your being. I like them because you already know all the answers! It’s like acing the test of YOU :) And who knows YOU more than you do? (I do! Wait, what?)
Today I was fortunate enough to find a quiz such as that, only having to do with money. Which was kind of a life saver considering a) I was plum outta ideas to blog about, and b) I’ve always wondered what kind of superhero I’d be. (Although not sure this is one I’d be posting around on Facebook, if you catch my drift)
So today I present to you, the What Kind of Financial Superhero Are You quiz by the kids at LendingTree. 11 super easy questions with one fat prize at the end: A look into your financial psyche. Here was my favorite of the questions:
Last month, the bulk of your purchases involved:
— Things I never knew I wanted.
— Food, gas and groceries.
— Stocks, bonds, investment properties, etc.
— A swipe of my credit card.
That first one cracked me up :) I used to always find things I never knew I wanted! Groupon can help with that too… although I’m finding more and more how beneficial those daily sites can be when used right. But anyways, here’s what my results said about me – the new Mr. Green Machine:
“You’ve got cash projections that even the Trumps would admire, and you know how to find the best price on almost anything. Monikers like, ‘Frugal,’ ‘Fiscally Conservative,’ and ‘Tight- Fisted’ are not beneath you, and you feel confident about where you’ll be financially when the car breaks down or you’re ready to retire.”
Haha… You hear that Donald? I’m coming for you on the next Apprentice! Which is one of my all-time fave shows, btw. That Ivanka is hot smart! And it’s coming back soon too. My boy Lil Jon’s gonna be all kinds of biznass like up in thurr, I’m pretty excited! His trademark Whaaaat’s and Okaaaaaaay’s were starting to fade from popularity making me quite sad…
But enough about my ramblings — get out there and take the quiz. I want to see if you learn anything about yourself today, or if you already knew you were a Budgeting Bad A$$. Or, if you prefer, you can take your chances & click this randomly generated old post of mine instead. 50/50 chance it’ll be cooler.
