Do you find it harder to befriend, the wealthy?
Do you think wealthy people are generally more selfish,self-centered,and less compassionate,
than middle to low income people?
I find it hard to befriend wealthier people because,they usually just brag about all the "status"
and all of their stuff it's so annoying ^_^'.
What are your opinions?

Hmm... well you know just because there wealthy or poor that doesn't mean anything about there personality.

Anway I don't care about if there rich or poor. Just need a guy that's there when you need him.

I probably prefer nice poor people than wealthy people! The poor doesn't deserved to be poor! Everyone should be equal!! That is what I think, but I don't know about you.

Thank you so much to soujiokita fro making my avy and sig! Mega thanks! *hugs*

Well I'm not really all that sure I've got friends from both social classes... though I'm in a lower one myself.

I generally see this pattern no matter where I'm at. Most of the rich people these days tend to be "show-offs", thinking that they have enough money to buy what they want, but in turn, they are quite selfish. Most of the middle and low income people end up spending their money just to help complete what some of the rich people started, and the rich people end up saving their money more often. However, I find it better to be a bit conservative and allow my earnings to add up before I buy anything luxurious and long-lasting. In short, I'd rather befriend a nice person who is willing to sacrifice their own money to help those who need help, condoning the level of wealth that they have.

Ummm... I'd rather befriend a nice poor guy than a wealthy snob. However, the rich aren't always snobbish. I think having the strength of character to be humble even when you're rich is good.

To the question in your thread title, of course nice & poor over the rich snob. Not only in terms of preference, but nice people are obviously easier to befriend. There's not much of a debate there.

But I dont know.. you're generalizing a bit too much I think, to say that wealthy people have these kinds of personality problems. Hypothetically there can be people who turn around and say stereotypical things about lower class people too (e.g. they're dumb, cause social problems, lazy, uncultured, rude, etc.). The fact that some less privileged people detest the wealthy for being 'snobs' obviously in itself, shows that not all 'poor' people are nice.

I think its about perception. I don't know if the confidence/snobbiness of the rich is something you can blame them for. It's a fact that they're different in a lot of ways from the average person, and being the humans that they are, naturally would acknowledge it and give themselves too much credit for it, becoming elitist and what is referred to in this thread as self-centered and snobby. Those who are not as privileged don't understand the wealthy culture (which is not just about showing off and spending money.. that's oversimplified) and while often envying what the rich have, condemn their bad personalities at the same time, which is a convenient way to escape feeling inferior.

Both are at fault. People should try to get along instead of trying to pick out shortcomings in others. But then again, that's not human nature is it..

seeing as how this question seems to over-generalize social classes, I'll just say this. I'll choose the nice guy over the snob anyday, regardless of that person's economic status.

You can't just say all rich people are conceited. Sure, some of them might be, but it's not always like the movies ^.^. Just be friends with nice people, and don't judge them by how much their parents make...that's just kinda weird...heh

i'd definitely be friends with nice people. i hate people that are cocky, self-centered etc. unfortunately, majority of the people that pops up in my life are like that which explains why i don't have that many friends. i especially hate people that thinks they are so smart that they can belittle people. people like that are just trash of society.

I love to befriend with kind, caring, funny, helpful and polite. I felt these people are my role modal and I should develop these qualities too. I wanna become one of them!
Wealhty people are always associate with self-centered, selfish and not helpful. It depends on really what kind of people you really are. Even when these people are not wealthy... Are ya sure they would not brag about what they have? Wealthy people "brag" bout their "Status" as they afriad that people would think their company have gone bankcrupt...
It is just a mask over people. My closeset uncle is a rich man....He's my fav uncle!

well, i have friends from both worlds, so i don't find any problems befriending the wealthy or poor. as alisha said, it will depend on their character and personality and it's not fair to generalize all wealthy people as snobbish and boastful or stereotype the poor as being nicer. but in response to the title of your thread, i would of course prefer a nice poor friend over a wealthy snob, not because i would be choosy over their socioeconimic position, but because i just want to have a nice friend.

it doesn't matter if there rich or poor. i believe that it all depends on their personality. a couple of friends of mine are rich but they don't brag about it. then i see these other people that brag about it all the time. they make the middle class and lower class fell sad.

I agree because my sister knows some one who is wealthy and doesn't really act like that.I'm not saying all wealthy peopel are like that but I befriend people on the account of their attitude towards me or atleast try to.I also befriend them if they need some one to be their friend.

I totally agree, the general attitude of the wealthy is rather snobbish at times, but if you go deep enough into anyone you quickly discover they are not as bad as they seem. They have hidden thoughts ambitions that get masked because of that rich mask they put on because they are insecure. But all in all I think it really truly depends on the person and how they were brought up.
