Rich people have no idea what you’re thinking

Upper-class people are less adept at reading other people’s emotions than their lower-class counterparts, according to a new study published in the journal Psychological Science. “People from a lower-class background — in terms of occupation, status, education and income level — performed better in terms of emotional intelligence, the ability to read the emotions that others are feeling.”

… In another experiment they conducted, upper-class people became much better at reading emotions once they were asked to imagine themselves on the other end of the economic, educational or social spectrum.
