Your Birth Order: How will You Spend Your Tax Refund?

          For those lucky people that are about to get their tax
refunds, did you know that your birth order influences
how you see money and use it? Many couples have
different ideas about money and some feel this issue
can lead to difficulties in a marriage. Your birth order
can explain your behavior.

Basic Birth Orders
The basic birth orders are the Only without siblings,
the firstborn, second born, third born and fourth born. 
After number four the series starts over again. Each
birth order has their own view about money and how
it should be used. This does not mean that you have
no choice in the matter as each birth order has both
positive and negative behavior patterns, see which
is yours.

The Only
This person mimics his parents and is the only birth
order without siblings.  If he was indulged by his
parents and given anything he wanted then a person
with this birth order may buy jewelry clothes or art
work. Anything for himself, as this type of Only
would not want to share. The positive Only would
be buying books, his first friend, or maybe theater
tickets for himself and a companion to share in his

The firstborn can be very frugal with money and save
it for their retirement or save it for their grandchildren.
Money can be used as power over others so by giving
gifts they feel more powerful. They feel the burden of
leading the family and want to be an example for the
younger siblings.  The other type of firstborn would
want to flaunt their power and may use the money to
throw a lavish party in their home to show others how
successful and powerful they have become.

Second Born
The second born uses money to protect themselves
from not being told what to do. Some of the most
successful people are second borns like Bill Gates
and Warren Buffett.  If positive, they will invest this
tax refund to further grow their nest egg.  If negative,
they may go on an adventure trip where they would
use their athletic skills or go to an exotic location very
much off the beaten track.

Third Born
This birth order doesn’t care about power or money
they see the human condition  and the beauty of nature. 
Their senses are very developed and they want to
understand and “Feel” life at every level. On a positive
note they may give their refund to the church, make a
donation to a worthy cause, or help a poor street person.
If negative they may throw a party where drugs and
alcohol are in abundance, or go to a rock concert.

Fourth Born
This is the baby in the birth order series and they may
want to seek advice from an older sibling as to what to
do with the money. They would tell them to save it for
the future as the older sibling will not always be there
to help them. Of course, they may not listen and just
want to have a good time with their friends. A party
barge would be a great place for a good time.

The Choice is Yours
Every birth order has a special way to look at money. 
They have a choice that is positive or negative and that
is why even the same birth order appear different.  Which
behavior will be yours and will you have a conflict with
your spouse if a Tax refund appears?
