15 Questions That Will Tell You If You Have What It Takes to be Wealthy

Okay, so we all want to be filthy rich: some of us want it for the right reasons, while some have a more sinister end in sight. But do we actually have what it takes to amass real wealth?

This quiz from CNN Money compares some of your traits, from your marital status to your looks, to identified characteristics of known wealthy individuals and tells you the likelihood of you becoming filthy rich.
  1. How optimistic are you?
  2. When you grew up, were your parents rich and/or home owners?
  3. How healthy are you?
  4. How smart are you?
  5. What level of education did you complete?
  6. Physically, are you tall and/or good looking?
  7. How many siblings do you have, and are you the eldest child?
  8. Are you married?
  9. Do you have kids?
  10. Do you exercise, and/or smoke?
  11. Would people describe you as nice, persistent, and/or materialistic?
  12. Do you believe that a woman's place is in the home?
  13. What's your source of livelihood: employment, your own business, or are you retired?
  14. How would you like to jump out of a plane?
  15. Who would you rather emulate? A man known for throwing extravagant soirées in his art-laden mansions around the world, or man whose idea of a wild party is playing bridge online at the home he bought for $31,500 in 1958.
While some of the questions are obvious enough (If you were already born rich, what's the likelihood that you'll end up being rich? Duh?), some of the others are actually quite interesting. I have listed all 15 questions here, but you have to take the quiz to see the explanation for each item and your final score.

As you can see, I managed to get enough points to have a good chance of becoming rich. I guess I have my jaw-dropping good looks to thank for that. :P

So how do you think you'll do? Tell us all about it in the comments section below.
