    Caution makes sense, although I suspect you mean this in an wonder and awe sense, which I wouldnt.

    On a more shallow level, they intimidate me. If they lose $20k on something unexpected, they're out something cool.. if I lose $20k on something, I've lost an entire year's worth of hard work and sweat.. Considering all of my belongings combined probably cost somewhere between $30-40k including my car, it's hefty. There's something scary about people not batting an eyelash at sums of money.. it is just a sort of power I will never have or recognize..
    They also intimidate me on their very different lifestyles... I think I'd be nervous on how to act and what to say if I ever had to go to a richer, fancier dinner party sort of thing.. I'd probably make an ass of myself to at least one person.

    But that sort of thing is all shallower.. in the end, I don't much care. Poor people do dastardly things to get what they want sometimes--and so do rich people. I don't think money is an account of character persay.. but the socialization of that person will be different.

    What I truly think about rich people is the sheer confusion I get from them. From the insane stunts, to the effed-up spoiled kids, to the decision-making process that makes me tilt my head, and finally to the greedy and over-arrogance.. It just seems like those things are more rampant in that sort of environment where survival and community just isn't as big of a deal with the luxury of money being there. At least, that's how it seems... I'm not rich, so I don't tend to get to socialize with them often.

    I admit I'm a little intimidated by opulence. When I visit a pretty wealthy relative's huge house, I feel kinda lost. And small.

    Or maybe I just find the coffee table books kinda tacky.

    I love rich people. they're confident, they're extravagant, they make good conversation, they don't have all these should's and supposed to's (usually) and i tend to fit in in places that are high profile. I also appreciate the politeness and hospitality and "who cares if it's expensive if it's fun" approach to life. being stingy and unnecessarily frugal is not noble, it only results in boredom, restriction and lost opportunity costs.
    that being said, how they got their wealth is important too.

    ^this. money is nothing but lens into one's true character. if a rich person is nice to a person who is economically/strategically unimportant to them (such as a waiter in a restaurant where they're sure none of their associates are present) then you know it' because they genuinely want to. it's almost like people view people as inherent ass holes who need to be kept in check by financial restraints and that rich people are just regular assholes who are allowed to be assholes because they're not accountable to anyone. this is of course complete BS as there are several rich and poor people alike who genuinely have no desire to be a jerk.

    I never gave it any thought, certainly not about being frightened by them, or the poor for that matter.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    it depends, there are a ton of different types of rich people.

    i probably appreciate self-made people, who earned their money by doing something important or creative the most. and who don't rub their money in other people's faces, or are at least generous with it.

    i have no respect for stuck-up people who have been rich their whole lives, completely take it for granted, look down on people who aren't at their status, and have never done anything to deserve it.

    this doesn't just apply to "the 1%" or super wealthy people, upper middle class people too.
