On a scale from 0 to 20 points, where 20 signifies full engagement with mainstream American culture and 0 signifies deep cultural isolation within the new upper class bubble, you scored between 9 and 12.

In other words, even if you're part of the new upper class, you've had a lot of exposure to the rest of America.

So because I eat at Applebees and attend my town's yearly christmas parade I've had "a lot of exposure to the rest of America?"

Edit: Not to mention the fact that I've only left Oklahoma/Texas twice.

This whole quiz seems very classist.  A high class person can enjoy and know about NASCAR (case in point... okay, maybe not. ;) ).

Guy in the pic was "Mr. 5 Time"  Jimmie Johnson, anyway.  Not really one of my faves, but I know him because of how many bloody championships he's won in a row.

Anyway... full of fallacies, this quiz.

Between 5 and 8 is what it told me.

Hey, now I remember where I heard this guy's name before. He's the asshole who co-authored The Bell Curve.

EDIT: Whoops, sorry. I didn't see how old this thread was when people started posting on it again. Since I hadn't remembered this thread I thought it was new :-\

On a scale from 0 to 20 points, where 20 signifies full engagement with mainstream American culture and 0 signifies deep cultural isolation within the new upper class bubble, you scored between 0 and 4.

In other words, your bubble is so thick you may not even know you're in one.

Meh, this counts as new results I guess.
I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.

Why do the most furious nationalistic people look like they suffered brain damage as a kid?

No offense to anyone who actually has suffered brain damage.

I scored 5-8.  Which is weird, because although I'm well-educated (as are the rest of my immediate family), I'm hardly upper-class.  Hell, I'm barely even middle class.

My father was the first one in his family to go to college, and only the 3rd to graduate high school (including extended family).  He served with distinction in the U.S. Army in Vietnam (later in life, he convinced both me and my brother that the military was not a wise career choice).  I worked a bunch of shit jobs before, during, and after college.  I suffered through two lengthy spells of unemployment thanks to our shitty economy.

Does any of that sound even remotely "upper-class"?
