On a scale from 0 to 20 points, where 20 signifies full engagement with mainstream American culture and 0 signifies deep cultural isolation within the new upper class bubble, you scored between 5 and 8.

In other words, you can see through your bubble, but you need to get out more.

  1. I think my bubble is actually a lot thinner than this survey suggests and even within the confines of the survey since I was pretty strict in terms of interpreting the questions. Still a fun non-scientific survey!

  2. If turning off Oprah and drinking shit beer is wrong, I don’t want to be right.

    Also, the questions seemed to overly specific. I worked on the floor of a factory one summer… collecting logistical information for a college class. But before that, I worked the stockroom and floor of big box store, and I worked minimum wage at in a kitchen.

    No one hangs out with smokers in January in Minneapolis. Few people smoke in January in Minneapolis.

    1. Yeah, like a said, just a fun but certainly not a very well-constructed or scientific poll. But my guess is that it does capture something given that Oprah, Pabst, NASCAR, smoking, etc are markers of a certain class of Americans.

  3. But my wife is in a bubble with a score of 2 (though she is very civically engaged in our town):

    On a scale from 0 to 20 points, where 20 signifies full engagement with mainstream American culture and 0 signifies deep cultural isolation within the new upper class bubble, you scored between 0 and 4.

    In other words, your bubble is so thick you may not even know you’re in one.

  4. I was at 8 – 12

    By the way, if some of the questions were not about “close friends” but rather about relatives and inlaws there would have been a lot more “hell yes.”

    Also, my son is U.S. Army officer, though my wife and I were never in the military.
    And I do teach at a military school!

    I wonder how my wife is going to come out.

    By the way, Kiwanis and Rotary are not made up of professionals, not factory workers.

  5. My score was “between 9 and 12”: “In other words, even if you’re part of the new upper class, you’ve had a lot of exposure to the rest of America.”

  6. Here’s what it told me:

    “On a scale from 0 to 20 points, where 20 signifies full engagement with mainstream American culture and 0 signifies deep cultural isolation within the new upper class bubble, you scored between 13 and 16. In other words, you don’t even have a bubble.”

    I consider myself to be in a redneck bubble. Why weren’t there any questions about gays, firearms or abortion.
