I like to take silly quizzes when I'm bored. Especially the ones that 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?)


Recently I was fortunate enough to find a quiz like that, only having to do with money. Which was kind of a life saver considering A) I was plum out of ideas to blog about, and B) I've always wondered what kind of superhero I'd be. 

So today I present to you the What Kind of Financial Superhero Are You quiz by the kids at LendingTree. Eleven super easy questions with one fat prize at the end: A look into your financial psyche.


Here was my favorite question:


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 anyway, 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.

Ha ha … 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, ahh, smart! And it's coming back soon too.


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 ace. Or, if you prefer, you can take your chances and click this randomly generated old post of mine instead -- 50/50 chance it'll be cooler.
