My NW is not yet a million but I voted anyway. I interpreted the poll as asking what my attitude to money is, regardless of the size of my stash.

Thrillionaire

Thrillionaire - I have characteristics from several of the categories but Thrillionaire fits me the best.

The real question is how many millions you have.......a person with fifty million will always have a different answer than one that just achieved their 1st million.......the real question is if you're a millionaire, how many million do you have?

Not quite there, but adding the value of my pension, I qualify...

I live in an 800 square foot house, in kind of a working class/middle class neighborhood. The only clue would be a new Subaru Forester in the driveway.

Some of the snooty acting neighbors would be surprised that the old guy walking his dog was doing pretty well.

Oh forgot, put me down for #3.

Another couple of million would not change my answers or lifestyle. However, 50 Million more probably would.

That in essence is why I quit working. An extra 100k each year continuing working wouldnt change my lifestyle, it would just be more money in the bank...I would need many millions to change my life. And it would change it if I ever had it. But I wont.

Sometimes Thrillionaire, sometimes Realionaire. I have a nice house, sports car and country club membership. But I don't spend a lot on clothes, watches, jewelry etc. I drink inexpensive wine & beer and use coupons for almost everything.

I don't need as much as $50M to change my lifestyle. About $10M, or perhaps even less, would allow me to move to a snobby neighborhood, or getting that 3rd home on the waterfront of the Puget Sound. I may even fly only business class. Then, I would change my screen name and come back here to vote for category 1.

3. but aware of 5 in that with no heirs some day I will have to decide where it goes if there's any left.

As a 3 it does tickle me on the rare occasion when I am in a nice store but dressed in my usual casual (something clean on the top, something clean on the bottom - DONE) style and get ignored or condescended to.

I've worked too much, making me an Ill-ionaire.
Then I drank too much and was a Swill-ionaire.
Fortunately I've managed my assets well enough to be a Still-ionaire.
Though by the time I'm gone I hope to be a Nil-ionaire.

Yeah... not only that... we all think alike on issues like whether to pay off the mortgage or not, when to take SS, etc.

50 million more... Hum, let's see... You know what they do with a prize race horse when "he" is retired.... He's put out to pasture, so to speak....

For me, 50 million more and my retirement pasture would be Las Vegas.

Yes, this was my point in an earlier post. The obvious answer for more mature people with a million or three is #3. However, if you have say an order of magnitude more than this it would probably be different. Maybe #1? Very different having $25 million vs $2 million. Hard to appreciate this unless it actually happens because most people develop a strong satisfaction with their current wealth, especially once retired. To be otherwise would just make one unhappy.
Seems like NW-Bound might be an exception?

I doubt you would have $50 million for very long.

Maybe, but it wouldn't be from gambling losses.
