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!
Types of Fire
But before you take the amazingly innovative (and fun!) “what type of fire are you” quiz, let’s go over the possibilities. These will be super brief, but don’t worry – if you’re really interested in any of them – well, there’s a post for that.
- Passion Fire – Freedom to pursue your passions

Also remember – this quiz is mostly just for fun. If you answered the questions honestly, you’ll probably get an answer that works for you, but the quest for financial independence is incredibly personal. There’s always going to be nuance that quizzes just can’t capture.
