Do you ever catch yourself assuming someone is not nice just because they're rich?

No. Money can change people, but we need to give everyone a fair chance before we make assumptions. :)

money doesn't make the man. they may tend to be snobbish, but those with real class are the most approachable people you'll ever find, and class cannot be bought

I think the quality of being "nice" is unrelated to economic status. I also think many people make the mistake of assuming someone has money just because they appear comfortable or seem to have "more." Likewise, they assume poverty because someone doesn't wear a suit, drive a nice car or live in a big house. We're far to materialistic and far to quick to judge people, in my opinion. Nice is as nice does!

I can usually feel the "air" when I see them and then make the determination.

Being a jerk doesn't depend upon wealth or poverty, however we all need to strive to create a community in which individuals can develop their potential and be dependent upon access to or denial of opportunity caused by the status of your asset base and disposable income.

the question is strange... a rich person can find easier solutions to look nice...
maybe it was about their behavior :) because all is in the end about attitude

I know better than to judge a book by its cover, but sometimes the expressions on their faces when they think no one is watching is a good indicator. And the eyes.

Some people are born into money.. Others earn it.. Regardless, both poor and rich can be equally nice or difficult to deal with.. I love everybody because everybody has something to teach me.. :)
