    Re: Which class do you identify with?

    Yeah, I'm not feeling this poll. When I think of terms like "middle class", I think economically, not educationally. I've known folks with nothing more than a high school degree and some tech school who have pulled themselves into six-figure incomes because they are smart, hard-working and damned good at what they do. Also, if one marries "well" it's possible to go from "working class" to "privileged" simply by saying "I do!"

    I tend to prefer Human Fighters, especially in 4th edition. If it's 3.5, I would rather pick a class from the Book of Nine Swords, but that's just so my characters can compete with spellcasters in later levels.
    lol I get what you're saying!

However, I believe it's an easier way to get people to participate in a poll such as this, by asking them which 'class' they put themselves in based off of educational levels as to posting income amounts.
    Well theres high school dropout small businessmen that are upper middleclass in income...and high school grads...personally education does not equate to income...a college professor with a doctorate can make a 100 grand a Police Captain can make 140,000 depending what dept.

    I don't "identify" with any of them. I'm a human. They are all arbitrary.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I think class levels separated by static income designations and "official" education levels are arbitrary and largely inaccurate.
    I don't identify with any of those classes.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Alright, Eco. You sure changed my opinion with your sarcasm.

    How do you fit into the income/social class in the United States?

    Upper (old money/privileged upbringing/ivy league school)
    Upper-Middle (Higher degree than a BA/BS)
    Middle (white collar professional degree)
    Traditional Middle (working - blue/pink collar -4 year college degree)
    Working (no college degree)
    Poor (HS, GED)



    I consider myself in the traditional middle class.
    Sorry, cannot vote. 80k with G.E.D., and a white-collar job, so where the hell do I fit in that poll?

    I have a Masters Degree, but I wouldn't consider myself "upper/middle class". I went by Blackdog's salary chart to decide.
