What's my type of FIRE?

As the FIRE has spread, the Financial Independence community has become more and more creative, "FIRE" has evolved based on simple but important questions such as: 

  • What kind of lifestyle do I want to live on my journey? 
  • How do I plan to reach my end goal? 
  • What am I willing to do or not do to save money? 

Some people want to retire ASAP because they hate their job. Others love their job and aren’t in a rush at all - they just want that intoxicating feeling of independence!

Similarly, some people want to maintain their current lifestyle, while others want to cut back and bring their FIRE date forward as fast as possible. 

While everybody’s answers to these questions are different, some common patterns have emerged that have led to the creation of 7 types of FIRE (so far!). 

The quiz below aims to help you discover the type of FIRE that suits you best, based on community stereotypes we’ve researched and experienced here at Pearler.
