    For DEEP ANALYTICAL thinkers only, how does one original socioeconomic class ( i.e. the socioeconomic class you were born into) influences one's formative & adult outlook on life whether it is your educational, life choices, career opportunities or lack of, how you view society, etc.?

      Being born into poverty will certainly affect educational, career opportunities and such.  But your attitude affects it far more; if you are content to sit back and accept what the hand you were dealt rather than work through it, striving for improvement, has far more effect.

        Good analysis.   For example, being born into a middle class environment can make one highly risk averse & extremely security conscious.  Middle class people are generally conformists & don't wish to rock that proverbial boat because it means loss of status & marginalization by family, peers, & associations.  Being born into a middle class environment makes one ever wishing to toll that line.   If one is solidly middle class(as I was as a child), there is emphasis on propriety, good manners, good behaviors, & forever following rules.  Yes, rules rule the lives of the middle class, particularly the solidly middle class.  Wilderness, how you ever watched the program KEEPING UP APPEARANCES- the main character Hyacinth Bucket epitomizes middle class propriety to a t.    I went from solidly middle class as a child to somewhat upper middle class as an adult to middling class now that I am retired.

        The problem is people born into poverty are less likely to have the role models, inspiration and consequently the resources to change their status.

        I don't agree with thE Horatio Alger paradyne, and say that it is very difficult for one to pull ones self up by their boot straps without boots.

          I don't know - there are plenty of movie stars out there - probably the most common role model. sad

          But you're right that a reasonable mental attitude is difficult for those that are surrounded by poverty.  When parents, siblings, relatives and friends wallow in poverty, blaming others for all that is wrong, it's very easy to fit into the same mold.
