Just for kicks, I decided to take the Murray “Do you live in a bubble” test. Basically the test tries to determine which class you are aligned up with the most closely, and whether you’re a 1st or 2nd gen in that particular class. Try this link: ( “Do you live in a bubble“) to try the online test out!
Okay below are my results and I have to say that the categories that the site test projected is pretty close to where I would put myself within the spectrum.
I think particularly interesting in my case is the fact that my family has shifted out of middle class too, but when I was growing up, we were definitely just middle class. In fact, I refer to myself as “Lower Upper Middle Class” whereas my family (parents and sister’s family) are both solidly Upper Middle Class.
While this test worked for me, I don’t put a lot of merit in such tests, and while the test is designed by a true professor that did some leg work to put together a decent test, one size does not fit all. Upper Middle Class has different meanings depending upon where you live, and your culture.
Try the link above, it may be amusing for you too…
