FOR ALL COLOR Q PERSONALITIES, money itself is either a mirror of self-worth or a means to an end. But how we negotiate our salaries, manage our budgets, and save for important goals is very much driven by our primary and secondary Color Q personalities. Each Color has a different and unique competence when handling this all-important aspect of life. Your natural Color Q salary negotiating and investment styles have been researched by author Shoya Zichy for seven years with close to a thousand people. Some of her proprietary results are being made available for the first time, and only in this book.
Given a choice, Greens prefer to deal with other things in life. When supporting just yourself, you see money as a tool to further your own personal development and create aesthetic surroundings. The rabid pursuit of riches usually turns you off. If you are the breadwinner, however, your attitude and involvement change rapidly. People you care about depend on you, and you will learn what it takes to provide for them.
Greens approach money in one of two predictable ways—you are either focused or spontaneous. Focused Green/Golds take a disciplined approach to saving for significant life goals like retirement. Spontaneous Green/Reds are sporadic savers and planners at best and innately high-risk takers when investing. While Green/Reds seem unlikely ever to accumulate enough to retire, you are supported by your almost psychic ability to predict investment trends.
