The results of a recent survey indicated that individuals who are worth more than $5 million are happier about their jobs, relationships, and work than rich individuals worth $100,000 or less.
The survey by the Spectrum Group found that 53 percent of those worth $5 million or more are “very satisfied” with their jobs versus the 21 percent of people worth $100,000 or less that are “very satisfied.”
It is not too surprising that those worth more are happier. That is human nature. However, it is noteworthy that up to 47 percent of the people worth more than $5 million are not “very satisfied” about their jobs. Isn’t that peculiar?
Nearly three quarters of the millionaires [worth $5 million or more] are very satisfied with their marriage or "committed relationship" - far more than the 45 percent reported for the merely affluent. Millionaires are also significantly more likely to report higher levels of satisfaction regarding their relationships with their children (59 percent vs. 52 percent).
