Phrenology: Acquisitiveness

Acquisitiveness describes the greed to increase one's possessions, to acquire, hoard and save. 

It can be aimed on material or immaterial fields, depending on the development of other faculties. It stands for the love of oneself's capital and is thus basically an self-centred faculty.
