What Class Are You Really?

Not that this really matters, of course. Brits definitely aren't obsessed with this. Oh no.

What Class Are You Really?

You got: Upper Class

You’re pretty rich, you’re pretty important, and you don’t see why anybody should have a problem with that. Money’s there to be spent, not talked about, and you don’t see why you should be ashamed about living life the way you want to live it - or why everybody thinks you’ve got it easy. If you were a vehicle, you would be a luxury yacht, sailing on a sea of the oppressed masses.

You got: Traditional Middle Class

You live a fairly comfortable life, in a proper respectable home with a proper respectable job. But you don’t like to shout about it, and you don’t really understand anybody who defines themselves by their money (how tacky). Anyway, you feel you’ve earned it through hard work and generally doing things right. If you were a car, you would have leather trim on the interior (but not leather seats, because they're a bit showy.)

You got: Aspirational Middle-Class

Yeah, you’re pretty well off and you like the finer things in life - and you’re okay with people knowing that. You’re ambitious, you want to be able to afford the lifestyle you feel you deserve, and you're going to do your damnedest to make sure you achieve it. If you were a holiday, it would be to a slightly nicer destination than your neighbours.

You got: Just Plain Old Sort-Of Middle Class

To be honest, you don’t really care about what class you are - you’re just busy getting on with life. You’ve got an okay job, you earn enough to have a pretty good time, and there's plenty of people worse off than you. You don’t really get everybody else’s obsession with defining themselves by their money or taste. Of course, that didn't stop you taking a quiz about what class you are, or sometimes wondering if everything you were ever told about how society worked was a massive lie.

You got: Traditional Working Class

You’ve worked hard, you’re doing okay, and frankly anybody who looks down on your because your job isn’t a fancy one can shove it. You’re the bedrock of the country, you live a good life, and you’re proud of that. If you were a vehicle, you'd be a good old Transit Van. But a nice one, not one of those old clapped out ones.

You got: Lower Working Class

Life’s not easy - it’s a struggle to make ends meet, and sometimes it feels like society’s out to get you (that's because it kind of is). But you know what? Screw anybody looking down on you. You’re just trying to get on with your life, and you don’t need fancy clothes or shiny cars to prove your worth. (A SHINY CAR WOULD BE NICE, THOUGH.)
