Interesting post Charlie

My background is in psychology. I teach psychology and also am a Marriage, Family Therapist. I am an INFP (split between T/J)and find the Meyers Briggs works very well in career counseling.

Awhile back I wrote a book, together with three other women, called "What a Woman" - a financial planning guide for the newly independent. We all came from different backgrounds. I focused on Prosperity and Poverty Scripts, which I believe have a lot to do with our view of money. Here they are:

Seven Components to a Prosperity Mentality
1. Awareness, 2) Healthy Self Esteem, 3)Purpose, 4) Ability to let go,
5) Information, 6) Plan and 7) Action.

Seven Components to a Poverty Mentality
1) Negative or outdated messages accepted as reality
2) Distorted perception, 3) Low self esteem, 4) Unrealistic expectations,5) Fear, 6) Inability to let go and move on and 7)Self sabotage.
