Session I: Are Rich People Worse Humans?

1.If you have watched the video, please and share what you have learned from it with your table members. Which part of the video impressed you the most? Why?
2.Did you think the rich is rude or stingy before watching this video? Why or why not? If yes, please share the outrageous behaviors of the rich you have knew or heard before with your table members.

4.There are two options for you: (1) You are poor but considerate, so you have more friends who really like you; (2) You are rich but self-centered, so you have fewer friends who really like you. Which one do you prefer and why?
