Ever wonder how to differentiate class from one individual to another? The New York Times came out with an interactive chart to distinguish class for a person. The most influential characteristics that could used to describe a person's class are through their occupation, education, income and wealth.

Playing around with the chart, the top 10 most prestigious job titles are:-
3. Database Administrator
4. Computer Systems Administrators
5. Astronomers and Physicists
6. Chemical Engineer
7. Chemist and material Scientist
8. Network and Data Communication Analyst
9. Computer Support Specialist
As you can see, many pretigious job titles in IT, while chief executive from management is only upper middle. For my case, I am computer support specialist, I am heading to maybe engineering management and probably what I want to be is Chief Executive. You can see my occupation class is heading down and my income/wealth is heading up. So, it's clear to say occupation class mean nothing, the income/wealth mean something.
