This is fun, thought-provoking, and takes just a few minutes to do. I think you'll enjoy it. It may (?) be slanted more toward Fools in earlier stages of attaining financial savvy, but I think the experienced vets among us will find value in it, too.

It's patterned like the NCAA tournament format with 4 general financial brackets just as the b-ball tournament has 4 regional brackets. Each of the 4 brackets has 8 "teams" paired off vs. each other. You pick what you consider the winners and advance your winners to the next bracket. You wind up with your personal Final Four and pick your winning financial priority for your own personal life/situation. As you'll see, each of the 32 competitors is explained by laying your mouse on it to help you decide what to advance.

Here are the 4 major divisions/brackets: Saving and Investing; Values, Communication, Advice; Protection and Security; and Spending. Expect tough choices! If you do this, you may want to tell us your Final Four and champion. Here you go:
