I'm not saying that genetics purely determines the personality, but it does indeed play a huge role.

How do I nature-nurture debate?


This too will pass.

75% of that article are true. Although some of the ideas are quite bullshit tho. It's not just for "rich people" only, it's a list of life advices for anyone who wants to get a stable and good life.

I bookmarked this, then share it with my friends. Thanks for posting :)

A lot of people become rich for a whole bunch of reasons, mostly through hard work, effort and/or a lot of luck. While I understand why people would be upset with children being super-spoiled by rich parents and get an inheritance after their parents die, the reality is that is how they have done business for so long, that it was simply to be expected thing to happen, whether the kids learned about the ins and outs of being rich and powerful or not.

If they do know the responsibilities of being rich and influential, then it really isn't that bad, but the problem is when they don't. There is no way that getting rich can be considered a bad thing, it's what you do with that money and influence that affect other people's perspective and overall mindset towards you.


Just stop worrying, and love the bomb.

Unfortunately, to democrats wealth has everything to do with politics. Point out that Mitt Romney was wealthy was half their campaign against him. Sad thing is it worked lol.

I think it mostly comes down to luck, some people work their asses off and never get rich. Then, some people don't really care to be and I know for a fact after I got so much money I would start giving hefty sums away to people in need.

A lot of people can get rich because of inheritance of relatives and being born with greater opportunities, whether than be in higher education or jobs (also by relatives). In other words, yes, you can be born rich. Fuck off Republicans
