Responsible money management is one of the things that makes successful adults. Yet so many people still treat their money like they’re teenagers, and whatever they want will somehow magically appear without them trying. This attitude can cause big problems later on in life. So we’ve come up with a handy quiz to test your financial age and find out once and for all if you’re a financial grown up.
What do I need?
All you'll need is somewhere to record the number of points you earn. It can be anything - from a pen and paper, your hand, or your phone.
If you scored between 8 - 10 points
Congratulations. You’re a financial grown up. You know that the more you know your money the better off you are. You’re disciplined and methodical and it will pay off in the end.
If you scored between 5 - 8 points
You’re a financial twenty-something. Your money is under control, but you haven’t covered all of the bases. You’ve begun to realise the importance of planning and preparation, but haven’t quite mastered the discipline it takes to be an adult. That’s okay though, you’re well on your way.
If you scored between 3 - 5 points
You’re a financial teenager. You still live like nothing is ever going to change. You haven’t yet figured out that money is a finite resource, and what you do with yours now is going to determine what you can do in the future. Maybe it is time to grow up a little bit.
If you scored between 1 - 2 points
Oh no! You’re a financial toddler. You treat money like life is a game of Monopoly and believe that whatever happens, you’ll somehow be okay in the end. Maybe it is time to examine some of your money choices, identify some of your goals and make a plan to attain them. Otherwise, you could be left sucking your thumb.
