    I am not sure if this is the right section for this question but I'll answer it anyway. Why would it matter if it changes people anyway? The big question should be - Why are you affected by their change?

    Someone else's life isn't your responsibility therefore it shouldn't affect you.

    Everyone is different.

    Money can change many people, but it won't change all.

    Probably, it will always be the case. However, some change for the betterment because of the more blessings they receive.

    On the other hand, it can change a person to be arrogant and boastful if he/she lets money rule his/her life. Hence, the love of money is the root of all evil.

      If the person's inner world is empty, money will definitely change him/her in a bad way. On the contrary, people with a good soul will always use their earnings as a tool to make this world better.

    Money doesn't change you. Only YOU can change you.

    If you want to use money as the excuse for your change that's a different thing.

    Some people are really focused on money - so they're more likely to be affected by big changes in their financial status - for the better, or for the worse.

    Fantastic advice, great response, if you're the type of person who is fickle to change, then that's what you are.
    You should'nt let it bother you, look after your own life, and let others take care of their's.

    Money changes your life, when your life changes it's bound to have an effect. It can be good, maybe now you can support your favorite charity or give back in some other way. Or maybe you become greedy, the almighty God effect. You choose...

    So it will change you one way or another...

    I've never seen money change people. They just do more of what they did before and are more of what they were before.

    Those who were giving and helpful are more giving and helpful.

    Those who were selfish and spent there money foolishly, do more of that and thus do not have a lot of money for long.

    wow, this is so true.

    I have personally known 2 people to win the lottery.

    The first won about $300,000 and invested it and made even more money. They never have to work a day in their life again.

    The second was my mates parents, they won over $1 million dollars and within 3 years were broke and had to go back to work again.

    It is all about your mentality. Yes I agree.

      First person was brilliant... and would be exactly what I'd do if I won. Second person got blown away by "wow, I can finally own this and that and everyone's mother and so on" and now struggling by squandering it on nonsense... same as some athletes do, actors, singers, etc. It's so sad.

      I'd only wish I could win the lottery, or the IM lottery after putting in hard work and finally seeing my first 5 figure or 6 figure a year total afterward. I'd definitely reinvest part of it, put another chunk in savings in an IRA or something of that nature, help my parents with some of their struggles (God KNOWS I wish I could do that now!), put some away for my wife and our son, donate some to a homeless shelter or children's cancer society, and of course enjoy a bit of it.

      It always irks me to see people that have tons of money blow it away, and others who struggle to make money do things to help others even though they barely have it themselves... hell, if someone wants to squander $500k, give it to me... I'll figure out something great to do with it! Trips me out...

    This thread gives an interesting insight into the various mindsets of the other members of the forum. Some perceive it as a goal, and others see it as a tool to help achieve true goals. Money can be a lot like a gun, in the wrong hands it can be a very harmful thing, but in the "right" hands, it can offer security and protection.
    Money itself doesn't necessarily change people, but what people do with it (good or bad) is facilitated by having more of it.

    Money does not change you. The opportunities change you. Take an athlete who hits the big time. All of a sudden he has more money than any of his buddies. He can blow it--or he can make the money work for him. His life will change. He will change. Was it the money or the opportunities?

    I believe that the money just brought out his personality. Choices (the opportunities that money brings you) tend to bring out a person's personality.

    Yes, they may. But I think it just depend on how money change people in one way or another. If it changes people for the better, so be it.

    The world is a constant change, anyway..

    A part of me would love to win the lottery (well I guess most of me, because it's so easy!) but really I'd like to work hard for it as well. I feel like I made something of myself to "earn" my money, and not just have it handed to me. But would the money change me? Not a chance. I'm very big on staying true to myself, no matter how much money (or lack of) I have.

    Money in itself can't do anything. It's your attitude towards it. As someone already mentioned, the Bible talks about the love of money being the root of all evil. The love of money for poor people can lead them to steal. The love of money for the rich can cause them to be haughty and arrogant.

    These people just act in accordance to want they currently have. If their changes doesn't affect your way of living then don't bother thinking about it. Free yourself from stress and things will go perfectly.

    Money, as everything else, change people. It really depends how you've earned the money.

    The question is how would you change? You'll have the opportunities to express yourself and handle the responsibility and the good will yet people are not perfect and mostly get mislead with their selves which leads to the "money change people" as we understand it.

    Yes, it does chang people's attitude, it brings out the real person in them and quite a much of such people think that they will forever remain that way--the money guy.

    I have a friend whom I currently live in the same room at school. As at last year when we lived a in a different hostel or room, he would call on me for help and I would willingly provide it. I could be in my class at night reading and I would abandone whatever I am doing to go and attend to him, provide food in most cases.

    Alas this year, he has turned into the REAL person I didn't know him to be. I have had a little problem with finance and he has proven to be who he really is. Talk about people who could walk on the poor and use them as a footmat, that is who he is. But I am not bothered, at least, he has showed me his really colours and I am glad he did.

    Sure it changes people - but not always for the worst. It won't change a person's basic character. If they are a rat with money, they were a rat without it. Money can relieve a LOT of stress, though. That's a good thing.

    I once knew a guy that bought a hotel for $100,000. About 8 years later he sold it for 11 mil. After he got 5 mil the company could no longer pay the rest and he got his hotel back and sold it again for some odd mil (can't remember). Any time I saw him after that he was cruising around in his Mercedes with the top down. He was always grinning and laughing. He was always a nice guy - but with all the money he was a nice guy that was just bizarrely happy. LOL.

    The only way to know a person is by dealing with him/her with money or live with that person, Money does change people but the change doesn't always have to be negative, some people feel when they have money they have power so they abuse it and some don't...

    I have also noticed that some rich people feel that everybody wants to talk/know them because they have money, so at the end they become paranoid and try to separate themselves since they don't know who is real and who is not.. the more money you have the more you become afraid of losing it..
