How to Play
What is Money Habitudes®
Money Habitudes is a game-like tool to help people understand and talk about their finances in a fun, constructive way.
Sorting the physical cards feels like playing a money game and includes interpretation cards as well.
Such engaging, hands-on activities make finance more approachable and build trust between people—even when they’re feeling anxious. In addition to getting people to talk about money, Money Habitudes can help people recognize their underlying financial biases and motivations to make real behaviour changes.
Here’s How to Sort your Cards:
At the most basic level, all you have to do is sort about 50 statements by whether they describe you or not.
(For example: “I think things will work out so I don’t worry about money” or “I will spend a lot of time and energy to get a better deal.”)
The process takes about 10 minutes
Interpreting Your Results
You can interpret your results in just a few minutes. The instructions are so easy they fit on a single card.
Then follow the instructions on the orange card and use the cream interpretation cards to help you analyze your results. Your combination of Money Habitudes is your money personality. There is no one perfect combination of Habitudes. Every category is good. Overusing or under-using any category can lead to challenges.
The questions to ask yourself are: How does your combination of Habitudes work for you? Would using any of the Habitudes categories more or less help you achieve your financial and life goals?
