Archetypes of the Rich and Famous

Daniel Gross wrote a fluffy but amusing article at Slate about the different flavors of Rich Folk you might come across.

But you don't have to be a millionaire to be "generally insecure [..] thirsting for privacy and exclusivity, and [...] a lifestyle [which serves as] a constant reminder of status and success.", or to be a "Practical, unassuming type [...] Who hate[s] to spend money unnecessarily, but 'willing to splurge for things that matter to [you]'" or "[someone who] view[s] life in holistic terms[;] willing to splurge to make sure [you] look good, feel healthy, and stay in good shape", or any of the 5 Archetypes.

And you certainly don't have to be a billionaire to have more than one of these archetypes as part of your personality.
