Yeah I highly doubt the validity of this study, keep in mind the "source" that the article cited has also performed "studies" such as:
Becoming a Vampire Without Being Bitten
A Single Exposure to the American Flag Shifts Support Toward Republicanism up to 8 Months Later
And then it charges you to view this crap.

That's a common misconception. Let's take that theory and apply it to anyone.
For the next 10 years, be as frugal as possible. Then report back to me and let me know if you became rich or not.

I don't need a study to tell me this. However, I have to say they have more class and never treat the cashiers or waiters/waitresses rotten, only lowlife cheap poor people act rude to their servers/cashiers...that much I will give the rich. They may lack empathy, however they know how to "portray" empathy.
