My husband the other day was talking about how he had read a devotional about the four money languages. I had heard about these before, but couldn’t remember them so I promptly looked them up on google and found this fun video. We both could identify our money languages and could see traces of our secondary languages as well.
Here’s the line that I identified with most:
“We can take that trip. We can buy pizza!”
Amiable it is! Pretty sure I’ve been known to say, “Hey! We have unallocated funds [funds not put in the budget yet]….let’s go buy something fun!” Not to mention that the last time we had unallocated cash on hand, I ended up going and buying all sorts of food for people. Hello, money means love =) Plus, gifts is one of my top love languages.
Ryan on the other hand…well, he’s an analytic and…”Money means security.” He’s been known to have thousands and thousands of dollars just sitting in the bank. Handy, though, when it comes time that he wants to do something with it like buy a wedding ring or go to Sri Lanka or head to Norway for a few months.
Thankfully, I have some analytic in me too and he’s willing to spend on experiences, which helps us be on the same page money wise and we’re Dave Ramsey fans.
How about you? Are you a driver, amiable, analytic, or expressive?
