What’s in other people’s bank accounts doesn’t matter to me at all. But if you’re a particularly nosy panda, Might be so There are several ways to find out how much your friends are hiding.
One curious Reddit user recently asked the following question:What are the non-obvious signs that someone is rich?’ many thought. From having casually expensive hobbies to always keeping quiet about their finances, we’ve collected a few signs that someone might be wealthy.Enjoy reading this discussion. . Upvote for subtle signs of abundance that you’ve noticed in people you know personally.
They are quiet when the discussion is about cost of living pressures, distracting the question from themselves or moving the conversation in another direction.
I had a very wealthy running buddy. For me, the unobtrusive sign was the books on his bookshelf. They weren’t books to read. Those were investments. He once told me that if someone tried to take his place, they might aim for the big TV, but they should aim for the bookshelf.
Most of the time they are tight-lipped about money, but they never hesitate when presented with a bill.
They are very selective about who they choose to be friends with for various legal reasons.
True generational wealth remains very low profile.
No digital footprint. They actually pay people to keep information about them off the internet and in the press.
They keep a low profile and drive cars that blend in. Nice and reliable car, but not too flashy.
They don’t have luggage when they board the plane.
So many wealthy people have multiple homes, each with its own separate wardrobe.
minimalist home. I don’t know why, but wealthy people prefer a simple aesthetic that’s honestly not homey.
An expensive hobby. He sails, skis, golf and more. Especially in areas where these activities are difficult to access or if they have been active for a long time. You live in the Midwest and have been surfing since you were 10? Probably rich.
change. Their clothes fit perfectly. Because they don’t expect off-the-shelf products to be a perfect fit.
For me it’s a few things..
1) There is a lacrosse field for children in their neighborhood.
2) It’s a big old house with a gravel road.Bonus points if you park in the small gravel parking space near the street
3) “I spend the summer in…”
They go out of their way to eat meals with fresh vegetables. It’s not just corn and tomatoes.
Oddly enough, I’ve noticed that wealthy friends I have eat differently than their middle-class friends.
Teeth are a subtle sign. I know someone goes to the dentist multiple times a year, but it’s an expensive habit. Their parents had the money to establish that routine when they were young.They had the money to maintain it.
People who are truly wealthy don’t have to “prove” they are wealthy. A 500k private yacht charter is nothing special if you are very wealthy.
People who are really wealthy don’t (generally) crave your admiration just because they’re wealthy. Their friends don’t say if you’re doing a 500k a week charter they probably are too.
They usually don’t wear ugly or fashionable clothes. All the carefully made clothes that you can use for a long time. They may have a luxury car, but it’s not new and it’s not red.
In my experience as a waiter at a fine dining restaurant, they treat you like a normal human being.
I don’t know if my boss coined the term, but “10 Millionaire” treats you like just “help” and makes you feel less human…
Luxury station wagon. I grew up in an affluent neighborhood, but these families are so wealthy they don’t need to show off their wealth.
Will others lose their jobs? Has the cost of a car suddenly doubled from what it used to be?Inflation that makes your money feel useless? Are eggs a luxury item?
None of that changes anything about their spending habits. They carry on as if nothing happened. They never bother to comment on it. They get a new Volvo every three years, eat two eggs for breakfast, and keep buying prime steaks at the grocery store. Their lack of panic says a lot about their financial security.
I’m in New York and the plastic face of a 50+ man. No one has perfect teeth after a certain age without any blemishes or lines without some kind of medical intervention. Most of the time, only wealthy people spend this much money on cosmetics (although lower-income women find themselves getting stuff, while men usually don’t know what they’re doing to do it). rich)
You might assume that you are normal and related to what you do, such as getting your yard work done or cleaning the house.
Based on actual experience, he had just paid a mechanic $3,000 in $100 bills to fix a grain silo while sitting in a restaurant with his picture on the wall behind the cash register. , a dirty farmer with a broken down truck.
Or someone who doesn’t boast and is trying to catch up with their neighbors.
A friend of mine worked in real estate. They said they identify someone with money/credit by looking at the tire as they pull in. If the tire is clean and tread left, it’s probably a good prospect, so a senior staff member can check it out. It needs to be dealt with. Dirty tires are almost bald. Give it to someone new. Because it takes a lot of footwork to approve them.
The main difference between those with money and those without is how they react to money-related emergencies.
If your bike is stolen, the poor man will understand how much trouble this will be for you.Turn will support your life. They may also find it difficult for you to change bikes. For them, the bike is not a necessity (perhaps they have a car), it’s just a fun exercise toy that they can easily swap out.
Wealthier people can magnify this money-related emergency even more. I have money that I wouldn’t mind too much if my bike was stolen, but I don’t have money that wouldn’t stress me out if my car was stolen, but with a certain amount of wealth, it’s a problem.
