You, in all likelihood have met little to no "rich people". The only ones you've seen are the ones on TV or on the internet - those ones are generally egotistical and assholes because they're playing a certain character OR because that's the type of person it attracts.
You've probably comes across tons of very "rich" people everyday, they just dress normally and act normally. That guy training at the gym quietly in normal-looking clothes? He could be a millionaire, so could any of them.
It's not like they'll be wearing a rolex and driving a Lamborghini, that's just showoffs.
desu I have lived with pretty poor people and they can be massive jerks
>playing loud music as they drive in to the apartment complex at 3 in the morning >leaving a dog out in the rain >swore I heard domestic violence once >take parking spot for three hours and leaves only when the tow truck comes and doesn't even bother apologizing
That's simply a characteristic of the human psyche. If you're rich, you're almost always going to attribute it to yourself and conclude that this makes you better than non-rich people, despite that in 99 out of 100 times, becoming rich had to do with either pure dumb luck or cheating the system.
I helped managed a unit complex on the Gold Coast and it was full of wannabe rich people that were being dragged down by debt. The top 4 units were actually full of successful entrepreneues and they were all down to earth and based.
The richest guy there looked like any other Aussie but he'd always come down with a coffee and Tim Tams and chat away with us, it was a real eye opener of the mentality that actually rich people seem to have. Very good communicators, very positive and friendly and the wannabes below them actually fit the stereotypes most people have of snobby rich guys.
>>1077085 >in 99 out of 100 times, becoming rich had to do with either pure dumb luck or cheating the system No. Most wealthy people (who didn't inherit it) got there through legitimate business practices and good decisions. You'd be pretty stupid to believe that all rich people cheated their way there

When did this become a "shit poorfags say" thread?
Everything is luck, you were born a neckbearded male and not the Japanese schoolgirl you wanted to be, which for you is unlucky.
Can you say someone who was born very business minded and charismatic eventually got rich by 'luck'? Sure, as long as you knowledge that EVERYTHING is luck, including your own fortune that you're not a AIDS starving niglet in Mozambique.
>cheating the system
You fail to see that most 'systems' do their best to prevent any of this shit happening. If someone was smart enough to cheat it, then that's just that.
Tell me, what's your super green ethical way of getting rich? Basketweaving? Yeah fuck off you'll stay poor forever.
>>1076906 Depends what you do with the cash. It's not acquiring the income that's demonized (generally) but what you do with it. If you do a Bill Gates and give it mainly to charity and those who created your income (microsoft employees), you're a legend. If you become an "instagram millionaire" , ie someone who has money and wastes it, then you're admitting that polishing your vacuous materialistic ego is more important to you than helping others.
Being rich doesn't make you a dickhead, denying your duties towards others makes you one.
>>1076906 It's mostly the ones who made the money through illegal means, inheritance or loopholes that are dicks. The rest are either normal people or normal people that have more money than you so you project your insecurities onto them.
>>1076906 For someone reason, people tend to exhibit sociopathic tendencies when they're rich. Even if you make a poor person FEEL (through a game or something) as though they are rich, they will do the same thing.
