The financial planning industry is populated with givers -- that is, people who put others' interests ahead of their own, Michael Kitces writes.

Kitces recommends the book "Give and Take" by Wharton's Adam Grant for lessons on how financial planners can best serve their clients without becoming victims of their own giving nature.
