Recently I've become fascinated by the relationship that people have with money. It means so much to so many different people, and it is one of the last taboos, so it's mysterious. I devour articles on The Billfold about what things cost, and how much people pay for rent and groceries. It must feel like what people felt like to read sex research back in the sixties. Am I normal? If not, where do I lay on the spectrum? What are other people like?

But even my favorite blog talks more about people's

When you deal with depression, many other issues come into play. For me a major one is money. I have to watch myself (and sometimes so do others) for financial infidelity. Or in layman's terms "feelgood" spending. You know where you buy things you just don't need to fill that hole inside.

Now I am lucky that I do not do this in large ways. Like buying big ticket items. But I can still lie about what I spend by just not telling. And being that I am the budget maker and bill payer then that is not

É um livro bastante revelador sobre as causas de nossos "distúrbios" financeiros, que é como os autores chamam comportamentos que trazem problemas financeiros. Através de sua leitura pude revisar minha atitude perante o tema e tomar consciência de algumas crenças que ainda preciso validar se são mesmo verdadeiras.

O livro é dividido em 3 grandes seções:
1) A grande mentira - basicamente os autores informam que nossos problemas financeiros não são causados por falta de conhecimento ou competência;

Pretty interesting, especially the psychological aspects of why people act/feel the way they do about money. I didn't necessarily see myself in any of the personalities, but it made me consider how early experiences can shape beliefs about ANY subject. I'd definitely recommend this for anyone just getting comfortable with their financial strategies.

From this, I learned I am idealist financially and I already knew I was a workaholic and I'm married to a Saver. I'd like to read a book about the different archtypes in a relationship to get words of wisdom for our financial relationship.
