I also got 9/20. I don't see how being tall has ever helped me make more money though.

I laugh at these foolish lists, especially since their only purpose is to make you press the wrong arrow to go to the next (wrong) page. It's all about silly ads and absolutely no substance.

I got 12/20. That means 60%. I do not see why being blond makes any difference?

13/20 for me, but that includes two ˝ scores I gave myself.

I'm familiar with the research behind most of these items, but I think they're mostly correlation, not causation.

Dumb article. I'd have gotten rid of many of the things and have inserted others. I scored 9/20

Agree. Almost fell for that arrow myself!

I am old, and it's too late to become rich. I do not even day trade and expect no large inheritance, so what's the mechanism to get rich?

But I have enough to eat. Does that count for something?

Not blonde or tall. Not born rich. Decent looking, and medium height in my country. I got the others. So got to be rich :-)

I meant to ask... What do you get AND did you make "rich", if you are a high score person?

10 to 14, depending on whether I gave myself a 1/2 score on some questions or not.

Am I rich? We will have to define "rich". If we talk about being in the top 1%, which requires an annual income of $380K and/or a networth of $8M, then I am not rich.

14/20. Born rich? Good looking? Blond? Tall? Uh...nope, nope, nope and so nope.

I also don't smoke and I'm not into real estate.

First, what is rich? 500k, 1m, 2m, 10m, 100m, more?

Probably would get credit for 5 or 6 of the 20 if I took half credits for some of them.

Spoiler alert, don't wast your time (like I did) reading the article. A lot of BS.

un-spoil alert. BS or NOT is in the eye of the beholder.

Everyone entitle to their opinion. I happen to think many politicians, movies, daily news, youtube video are a bunch of BS.... We still love to watch and read them.

I think anyone score high and "rich" would agree with the article. :-)

btw, "rich" is also a relative word.

Well since I'm only in the top 2 or 3% (depending on which article your read) I guess I'll never know if I would agree.
