Won't you tell us more about the assignment or would that interfere with the exercise?

It`s one of my psyhological course assigment.During the discussion I said that it was practically impossible to find a millioniare and to speak with him. So my teacher gave me that assigment on purpose in order to help me breake my stereotypes.

Which university is this?

And would, "yes, I'm a real trillionaire" be acceptable?

Some people may be reluctant to 'advertise' their wealth. An interesting aspect of the Maserati car brand is that it tends to attract a very diverse demographic of people, most of whom really love the brand, it's styling and what it stands for.

You should also try Ferrari Forum by Ferrari Life - The International Website About Ferrari & Lifestyle where, I suspect, there may be a higher concentration of millionaires than here. Also, as I am sure you are aware, the manner of asking the question can affect the results of your experiment. Now that you have explained a little more context, hopefully more folks will be forthcoming. I would take this sort of approach, providing more context and purpose, if you also try Ferrarilife. Good luck with your assignment!

It's quite important. Few who have earned their wealth will respond to the initial post without understanding why you're asking. It's an odd request about a subject we don't like to discuss openly. Some whose fortunes were passed down to them would be much more likely, but there are fewer of those folks here.

As Mowlas mentioned, try the Ferrari forum. No offense to Ferrari owners, but, as a whole, there are MANY more people over there who'd be willing to respond to this unusual request.

It would really depend on the currency

We are all millionaires if we counted in Iraqi dinars!

And also if we're talking about cash in the bank, easily realisable assets, or property or whatever.

+1

By the way millionaires are counted in every official study as people with over $1 million in investible assets (cash, stocks, bonds).

Real estate, cars, paintings, businesses owned by the person are NOT included in the calculation. Mega huge number of millionaires in the U.S. and around the world if one includes real estate, ... too.
