Rajen on the Psychology of a Saver

Rajen on the Psychology of a Saver

Hi! There are two main types of people - savers and spenders.

What's also true is that all of us exhibit characteristics of both groups!

That isn't really surprising since the world we live in is in many ways - as Madonna used to put it - 'a material world'. So, the real issue for each of us is which trait - saving or spending - is dominant and which one is recessive.

The great thing about growing to understand this truth is that unlike our genetic makeup, there most certainly is something that we can do about which trait continues to be dominant in our lives... in the years and decades to come.

I've been thinking about this issue and discovered that an eloquently articulated opinion by a long dead novelist holds the key to understanding it. If you'd like to find out who that writer was and what he had to say that has such powerful relevance to our own 21st century way of life, then you're welcome to read my article entitled The Psychological Strengths of a Saver.

I hope you enjoy it. If you do, please come back to this page and leave a comment that will help other readers. Thanks and take care.

Warmest regards,


Rajen Devadason is CEO of RD Book Projects and its sister company RD WealthCreation Sdn Bhd. He lives in sunny, peaceful Malaysia with his gorgeous wife Rachel. He's a Malaysian Securities Commission-licensed financial planner, a life planning consultant, a professional speaker and a serial author... which probably explains why he's so exhausted! Some of his books are available here, and, if you're interested, here are some quotations he reckons are accurate, bold or cool.
