7 New Social Class Level Calculator – What class are you ?

A friend of mine sent me this and this caught my eye .

No more 3 “class system” but 7 levels !

As I read through it and did the quiz what I found / saw is that if you want to be successful / rich there is one common factor . Successful people deal with successful people & are friends with successful people .

Birds of a feather flock together

Also successful people do certain activities that other people don’t ,socialising is key .

In short if you want start a journey to becoming successful you need to act and be around successful people .
Also a lot of hard work is needed , my dad always said :

there’s no substitution to hard work

Maybe we should listen a bit more to them :-)

Happy Thursday,

The new classes are defined as:

Elite- the most privileged group in the UK, distinct from the other six classes through its wealth. This group has the highest levels of all three capitals

Established middle class – the second wealthiest, scoring highly on all three capitals. The largest and most gregarious group, scoring second highest for cultural capital

Technical middle class – a small, distinctive new class group which is prosperous but scores low for social and cultural capital. Distinguished by its social isolation and cultural apathy

New affluent workers - a young class group which is socially and culturally active, with middling levels of economic capital

Traditional working class – scores low on all forms of capital, but is not completely deprived. Its members have reasonably high house values, explained by this group having the oldest average age at 66

Emergent service workers - a new, young, urban group which is relatively poor but has high social and cultural capital

Precariat, or precarious proletariat - the poorest, most deprived class, scoring low for social and cultural capital
