What Type of Fire Are You?

The financial independence movement has spawned a ton of varieties. It’s not a one-size-fits-all crusade anymore, which is a great thing! Financial independence should be for everyone, shouldn’t it? The different flavors give everyone the opportunity to pursue financial financial independence, in one way or another. 

That begs the question – with so many kinds, what type of fire is right for you? You’re in luck, because I made this awesome quiz to help you figure it out! You may even find out that you’re FI without even knowing it!

  1. I got Traditional FIRE, but I think if you were to add a question asking something like “Do you have a plan to reach your FI number?”, then I could define the all new classification of “Clueless FI”.

    1. Dads for Dollar$, your funny! I actually laughed out loud! At least you have a sense of humor about it all! Besides, I am guessing you are hoarding more “clues” than your letting on!

  2. I got Lean FIRE! Um, what just happened?! It did force me to think about things I haven’t really thought about. This was a good way to bring insight and fun into a finances which, at times, can be lacking in fun.

    1. My BF wrote the “results” for me. I gave him a guideline and asked him to be funny. I think the lean fire one was his best – it was so ridiculously hilarious! But I’m glad it got you thinking about some of the reasons for pursuing FI – that was the whole point! Glad you enjoyed it!

  3. Hi Melanie
    Cool Quiz and very interesting blog.

    I got PASSION FIRE which describes pretty well what I expect once we achieve our goal. My wife target FI by end of 2024, I guess we could get there even sooner but want to make it as enjoyable as possible and by then it will be easier to travel with our two children.


  4. “What do you like about your current job?”
    –> This question needs a “the content”, “the impact” or “learning new things” option 😀

    I got passion fire, but I actually love my job haha. Maybe this is as good as it gets for me 😉 😉

    1. It’s great to hear that you love your job! I’ll check out the options there, maybe it’s time to tweak it!
