When People Are Not Level-Headed


We recently held a contest that asked our participants to tell us about situations where they are not typically level-headed. Well, we’ve got the results and it looks like the vast majority are not level-headed when it comes to shopping. For those of you who are in the same boat, we’ve got a blog post that talks about how to avoid impulse shopping. Check out what people had to say about when they are not level-headed.

Here are some of the entries we got from our “When are you notorious for not being level-headed?” contest question. How many can relate to any of them? Tweet us @lendingstream!
