Study: The rich are more narcissistic

Here is yet more scientific evidence to prove F. Scott Fitzgerald's famous words:

Let me tell you about the very rich.  They are different from you and me. They possess and enjoy early, and it does something to them, makes them soft where we are hard, and cynical where we are trustful, in a way that, unless you were born rich, it is very difficult to understand. They think, deep in their hearts, that they are better than we are because we had to discover the compensations and refuges of life for ourselves.  Even when they enter deep into our world or sink below us, they still think that they are better than we are. They are different.

Other recent scientific studies have shown that rich people are more likely to be aggressive driversact unethicallylack empathycare more about tax rates than jobs and education... and have more sex. So there you go.

The original narcissist.  If only rich pricks would turn into pretty flowers!
