#StrengthsFinder #deliberative in olden #Singapore. When our forefathers used a biscuit tin to stash the cash.
Deliberate with me.
Imagine right now, you withdrew all your money (I mean ALL) from the bank, didn’t have a real safe but still had to store it in your house. What kind of container would you use? This was the same thought process as our forefathers in Singapore decades ago.
Back then, they did not have banking facilities that our generation has grown accustomed with. They could not just withdraw small amount as and when required. They had ALL their savings at home. And the only way they knew to safekeep the hard earned money was in the form of tin “safe”.
Made by emptying a tin of “Khong Guan Biscuits”. This safe did not have codes or locks. All it had was a sturdy tin rectangular frame with a round opening on top that could be opened with a simple pry.
It could withstand most of the elements - rain, small fires, small flooding, physical deterioration and maybe even robbery if put beside other day 7 other tins of biscuit in the kitchen.
So if we looked at the worst case scenario of storing cash, this “tin bank” would have helped to mitigate much of the risk.
Explained further by the StrengthsFinder definition of Deliberative: The genius of Deliberative talents is in your ability to reduce risk and prevent problems through innate anticipation and careful thought.
As compared to a purse, sock drawer, envelop or under the pillow, the biscuit tin was the safest safe.
