    How Classy Are You?

    It used to be in class-conscious Britain that there were three social classes; working (or lower) class, middle class and upper class. People often refined that by describing themselves as lower middle class or whatever.

    Recently the BBC has been running a story which says that the old three classes are outdated and it suggests seven new ones, namely:

    • Elite
    • Established middle class
    • Technical middle class
    • New affluent workers
    • Traditional working class
    • Emergent service workers
    • Precariat, or precarious proletariat

    You can answer a few questions to find out where you fit in:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-22000973

    Yours truly is in Elite apparently!

    I answered Precarious proletariat... cause it sounded cool then i took the test you posted and came up with Elite... I guess it aint so cool... Perhaps I was thinking of the Praetorian Guard for the Praetor...

    Re: How Classy Are You?

    I tried that survey on the BBC website a few days ago - it's already been widely rubbished by participants as a load of nonsense and providing inaccurate results.

    Case in point - I tried it for myself and got Precariat, the lowest class (which I'm certainly NOT) and then I tried it for my dad and got Elite, the highest class (which he is definitely NOT) - we're both middle class.

    My dad was a college lecturer in textiles and finally paid off the mortgage on the house a decade ago, he is now self-employed and runs a tourist shop. That doesn't sound to me like upper-class elite, but nor does it sound like lower-class poor.

    Plus they fail to take geographical location into account. Everyone I've met down here in Sussex seems exceedingly upper-middle class and well-to-do from my perspective, yet someone with the same money/career/interests in the Scottish Highlands is always going to seem more rural, rustic, down-to-earth and lower-middle class.

    I think I'd fall somewhere between established and technical middle class.

    financially, I'm purely middle class... but in terms of cultural capital, I try to go to things like concerts, Broadway shows, and museums/art shows whenever the opportunity arises.

    Re: How Classy Are You?

    It's the usual load of old nonsense; apparently I am part of the ''Precariat, or precarious proletariat''.

    ''The poorest, most deprived class, scoring low for social and cultural capital'' ... in other words I am ridiculous well-off by global standards.

    Only a student right now but it looks like I'm headed towards technical middle class upon entry into the workforce (hopefully within the next few years). Culturally, I like to think of myself as elite.

    I am predicting that as a society the West will drop all doublings necessary for distinctions of class , the UK probably being the worst - almost everything before maybe 1980 was doubled for class , this "doubling" being in my estimation one clear instance of discrimination - separate doubled bathrooms restaurants drinking fountains for blacks ( maybe exactly the same but repeated ) . Actually US cultural world dominance one thing we all must be greatful for is it's rather aggressive opposition to class , egalitarianism , if the English are still hobbled by that absurdity .

    I'm at a loss to know what to make of this. In the UK there are no separate facilities for different ethnic groups or anything like it. Nor, as far as I'm aware, has there ever been. This is something the US once shared with apartheid South Africa and which is now thankfully confined to history.

    There are, I suppose, informal separations on a class basis in the UK. For instance, there are pubs and bars in my own city which I wouldn't dream of entering. And I don't mean the straight ones! It's just that different social classes stick, by and large, to their own places.

    Emergent service workers


    This class group is financially insecure, scoring low for savings and house value, but high for social and cultural factors. According to the Great British Class Survey results, lots of people in this group:

    * Are young
    * Enjoy a cultured social life
    * Rent their home - almost 90%

    Re: How Classy Are You?

    I'm "elite" but yeah. I also assumed a "solicitor" in a lawyer and "stately homes" is a bad synonym for "second property". In the US, a solicitor is a door-to-door salesperson, thus the "no soliciting" signs.

    Still, I would consider myself born, raised and currently upper-middle class.
