Are you a FICO High Achiever? If so, what's your horoscope sign?

Let's try something utterly un-scientific, but possibly quite revealing.  For those of us who are FICO High Achievers, is there a possible correlation between those things that are considered to be "typical" of people born under your horoscope sign and your diligence with keeping your FICO score high?

 

For instance, I was born in September, and I am (so my friends say) a "true Virgo". I'm quite analytical and very detail oriented. Those are two common traits of Virgo personalities. I'm the type who balances his checkbook monthly, and am very punctual (almost annoyingly so) about bill paying and keeping accounts straight.

 

Other family members rarely, if ever balance their checkbooks and frequently forget to pay bills in a timely manner which seems to coorespond to their "more global (big) picture" way of looking at finances, ie. "I thought the money was there, I keep my balance in my head".

 

So, what star sign are you, fellow High Achiever's?  Do your finances/bill paying style correspond to your "personality profile" of your zodiac sign?

Well, although I consider astrology utter nonsense, my wife (25 August) and I (14 September) are both Virgos which does fit in many ways I must admit.  We're both detail-oriented, risk-averse, thoughtful people.  We both have high FICO scores.  We don't bounce checks.  And neither of us has ever had an application for credit denied.

So do I - I have a sting in my tail  Smiley Very Happy  I am guessing my scores are high enough to be a High Achiever

And I've found the trick is not to stop the sliding
But to find a graceful way of staying slid

I am a "Sagittarius",  half man, half horse, so I guess that means I am all screwed up.   Smiley Very Happy

Virgo. But I don't know if I would be considered high achiever in the mid 700's.
