What Are the Money Types?

The most important thing to understand about your money type is that it is not your general personality. It is your instinctive patterns and behaviors around money. Often the way we behave toward money is very different from the way we interact with people. For example, some people may be outwardly loving and peaceful while internally they harbor a disdain toward money. Conflict and love/hate relationships with money are not just common, but prevalent in modern society.

Money types are considered archetypes and are based on the work of Carl Jung who identified 12 archetpes that make up the human psyche. According to Jung, these archetypes are a part of the human condition and are inherited from the collective unconscious at birth. So all of us share these archetypes, but we each have different archetypes at play at different times.

In Money Coaching there are eight archetypes:

  • The Innocent
  • The Victim
  • The Warrior
  • The Martyr
  • The Fool
  • The Creator Artist
  • The Tyrant
  • The Magician

When you take the Money Quiz, you will see that some of these archetypes are passive or possibly not present at all. Others might be more active which indicates that this is your most common way of dealing with money issues. The good news is that you can change your active money types whenever you are ready to do the work. Recognizing where you are now is a key to movingn forward in a new and improved direction!
