For many Social Bonders, their disinterest in money comes from never having been in control of their money, or not understanding how it all works. The resulting lack of confidence makes it harder for them to stand up for their right to be in charge of their own financial destiny.
Leaving the “money stuff” to someone else could end up costing the Social Bonder more than they can afford to lose. Should anything happen to the person who does control their money, would they know what to do? Their power lies in knowing what is happening taking control.
Just because Social Bonders don’t understand money now doesn’t mean that they can’t. They are just as capable as any of the other more “numbers oriented” archetypes of gaining control of and managing their own money. Simply shifting their belief in their own abilities can be all it takes to set them on a path to independence.
Understanding of where their money is going, what it is doing and who controls it is vitally important for everyone – including Educating themselves on the basics, like how to create a budget, and getting a financial advisor to conduct a risk assessment, are easy and attainable steps Social Bonders can take towards becoming their own financial powerhouses.
