Study Shows Money CAN Buy Happiness

Money can buy happiness; turns out we’ve just been buying the wrong stuff. A study from Cambridge University showed that “Matching spending with personality was more important for individuals’ happiness than the effect of individuals’ total income or their total spending.”

For example, people described as extroverts actually were happier when they spent money on things like travel and entertainment. People with a personality described as conscientious find happiness when they spend money on health, fitness, and insurance.

Once you figure out your personality type you can spend more on the items that will make you happier and spend less on things that don’t.

Less buyer’s remorse and more happiness! I’m in!

Here’s a LINK to more on the study.
