Understanding Your Score
Generally, a score of 5 or higher in any one Money Type indicates it is primary or dominant, while a score of 4 or lower indicates it is a shadow Money Type. But if all scores are below 5, then it's most often due to a "disconnection" between a person's present state of consciousness and awareness around money and the associated words. If several scores are above 5, then the multiple primary archetypes are often at odds with each other as to which one is "running the show."
Understand that it's not just the primary or dominant Money Type that is key. It's also knowing how your shadow or non-dominant Money Types interact with the primary Money Type that impacts one's way of moving through the world where money is a fact of life. For instance, one may have a high Magician or Warrior score (two of the more "positive" Money Types) but may also have a high shadow score in Innocent, Fool, or Victim. If so, then the "voices and messages" of the shadow archetypes may be distracting the Warrior (the archetype of Action) or the Magician (the archetype of Knowledge and Wisdom) from being fully present and focused on the task at hand.
More importantly, the results are not "who you are," but "where you are" emotionally and energetically when you took the quiz. Things can and do shift depending on which archetypes may be more active or have been triggered by a specific event or incident.
