Poor, Rich People Very Different in Nature

I think almost everyone has observed this. All you have to do is deliver a few pizzas to mansions and to trailer parks, and see where your tips come from, and you’ll see this in a action immediately.

There are several factors that may contribute here:

• Poor people know how far a few extra dollars go.

• Poor people tend to be less tightly wound, and generosity tends not to come from uptight people.

• Rich people got rich because they love money, and are thus prone to hoarding it.

• Lots of (though far from all) wealth comes from aggression and compromised integrity, which runs counter to kindness and generosity.

Could be other factors as well.  Who knows?
