The making of a millionaire may come by way of numerous methods, but typically your personality type has a lot to do with it. So, unless you’re resting on a hefty trust fund or a huge career break, it’s usually your natural predisposition that determines the level of your success. But how do you know if your personality equals millionaire status?

When the Myers-Brigg Type Indicator was developed back in the 1960s, the details of the 16 different personality types allowed individuals to grasp a clearer understanding of how their brains operate.
