What are the common traits of the not-so-well-to-do?
Those with no saving and are most unlikely to have a better life in the near future.
That they lack money? All people have a variety of differences regardless of their lot in life. There are many "poor" people who are quite happy and live peaceful lives and have a great attitude about making due with what they have. There are others who have problems like addictions who have kind of made a hard life through bad choices, then others just hit an unexpected hard turn - layoffs, bad economy, businesses closing down. The same can be said for "rich" people - some of them are not happy despite having monetary wealth and they never have "enough". Others are very kind, hard working, generous etc. Some are born into wealth and never know the value of hard work etc.
Aside from not having money, I don't really see how there would be an across the board commonality among the poor - nor the rich for that matter? Everyone is different.
I agree! Those who earn less than $40,000 are actually more happier than those who make more! People are learning to become more self-sufficient and live with less.
I think that ego is a person's biggest downfall, no matter their rank in society. It's inherant in people who are perpetually unhappy with life, and it's all across the board - rich, poor, middle-class, third-world, first-world.
That's really kind of judging lots of people.
Are well- to-do people better.
You can not have money and live well or happily.
I have a disability and can no longer work but that doesn't say I have certain traits. That's being very unfair.
But that's my opinion.
