How do you tell if someone is rich? Richness is inside not how much money you have. If someone has a lot of money they might be the most caring person. many give lots to charities and to other people. they may live well. But I am perfectly satisfied with my little house and garden, so I don't compare myself to others.

Some are not down to earth and/or view the less wealthy as below them.

This is a hard one to determine as most people are likely to say 'No', but I guess first impressions can be deceptive! I usually use a blind test, and see how that person treats somebody without seeing them...

"Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely." - Lord Acton

Wealth and power tend to go hand-in-hand. That said, I try not to indulge in stereotyping and making assumptions about people I meet.

I've known rich people who are nice. However, from what I can tell from how they're portrayed in the media, most rich, FAMOUS people aren't very nice, purely in it for money and power. There are exceptions though. Seems like if they started out poor and weren't born rich, they tend to be more well rounded, empathetic people.
