    Wow... this is really interesting chart... I'm not sure it's really true, but I find it interesting that Teacher trumps engineer.

    thinking about it, teachers, even if their income is not high, can play smart with their specific knowledges so that they can be seen as wise men and women, and thus be respected as ones
    Of course, knowing a lot of licentious things about your children or yourself sure helps

    judges have less prestige than lawyers though...... weird O.o

    Wow, having a bachelor's degree puts my education in the 91st percentile? That's kinda surprising.

    Well, average: 61st percentile. Not that classy, but classy enough, methinks

    There's a chart just like this in my sociology textbook that arranges all major jobs by prestige and such... its very interesting to see like that though Seren


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Average for an Architech with a bachlors is 78 to 80 percentile.

    with a masters only a percent higher?

    when they say weath(households worth) they mean how much the prices of the things you own is?

    cause if i change that it goes up to the upper 80's.

    I was just really shocked... that my mom who was a teacher was almost as high as my uncle who was an engineer. I mean he is by far much wealthier but she has a better quality of life hands down. If you would look at the side by side you'd think that my uncle was the oldest and my mom the younger... not youngest ... because California aunt has that one (looking the youngest).

    I just thought it was really neat to see it all put together like that.

    That's...interesting. I can't really figure out where I'd fall in there, since I'm a junior in high school, but it's still neat to play around with.
