Their result for The Social Stratification Test ...

Middle Class

You scored 31 social prestige!

Before reading your results, remember that social stratification is a trait of society, not individuals. Prestige is socially constructed. It is completely made up! Your personality characteristics, intellect, and everything else that is wonderful about you is not reflected here.

Social class is usually measured by income and educational attainment. In addition, your position was measured by understanding how you live your day to day life.

Your characteristics:
[x]You save your money for a rainy day. You might teach your children to save by giving them piggy banks.
[x] You live in a patriarchal family.
[x] You are open to compromise with your children. You encourage them to "be creative", "work independently", and "challenge the rules". These messages will provide your children with skills that lower class children will probably not have.

The upper middle class (about 10-15 percent of the population) is composed of professionals such as doctors, lawyers, and architects. They participate in politics.

The lower middle class (about 30-35 percent of the population) includes less affluent professionals such as elementary school teachers and nurses, owners of small businesses, and clerical workers. Not all members of this varied class hold degrees from college, but they share a goal of sending their children there.

It is human nature to assume that people we interact with have the same skills and knowledge that we do ourselves. We also assume that the opportunities to learn those skills have been available to everyone else. They haven't.

If you are interested, look at how the values of the lower class and high class compare to yourself.
