Poll: Fat FIRE

Not sure if I have seen this, how high net worth gets at the upper reaches here. For anonymity purposes, vote without leaving a comment if you prefer. For simplicity, lets not worry about the value of pensions, but only the value of what your estate would be (investable assets, house, etc.). I will include 2 lower rungs so everyone can participate, but I am most curious about the higher end and how far that goes.

Are you asking people to vote on their own net worth or what level should be considered Fat Fire?

Their own net worth

I am impressed there is a $25M+ vote. Never saw anyone discuss that kind of wealth on here.

Poll options really need to be more granular. Most will fall between 1 and 10, and that's a large range.

I put the lower options for completeness. But am really mostly interested in how many eight figure, or even nine figure, net worths there are here.

I agree, but there are already 18 votes in the 1-10 category, so if I change it now I have no way to split them and the results would be forever skewed...

And you think you’ll get complete answers? Or even honest answers?

And you would trust the results? Interesting.

I could not see anyone honestly at that level wanting to reveal it on this forum, for various reasons not much different from real life.

I’d be curious to see another poll of current net worth with several more lower tiers including multiple tiers below $1 million. For what you’re looking to find out this poll works and if these are honest answers there are some very high net worth individuals that participated.

LOL!
That poll really has nothing of value for who we are or who we are talking to each day. If wanted to know 8 figure wealth then that could of been accomplished differently.

So, if someone here has been retired for 10 years took their pension in a lump 10 years ago and have had it invested in stock or real estate that doesn't count in your poll. Not sure your poll was or is an true results worth taking the poll.

The poll needs to be broke down in 5M increments or less to get an overall view. A total net worth or just portfolio assets only.

I'm not trying to belittle you but the poll you started is just not giving a good view of the wealth here in my opinion.

Someone answered >$100 million.

I'm surprised they are in this forum, since a lot of us discuss DIY, LBYM, etc. And there are a lot of discussions regarding how to stay under the ACA cliff (excluding 2021 and 2022). Anyone with that kind of funds would find many of the discussions rather boring.

Because I think it's far more likely that people would punk the OP, for setting up a silly poll where 99% of the responders fit into one category than honestly report that much NW on a public forum. Or are you the guy with more than 100m+?

It's really not that unbelievable. One of the posters here used to have a signature line that said: "I'm not rich, I'm a poor guy with money. There's a difference"

Meaning of course that people can become rich for a variety of reasons that won't impact who they are as people or change their base behaviour.

I know for a fact that a poster who used to frequent this forum years ago had a net worth well into the eight figures for instance. He still found value in this forum.
