I think it’s safe to say that most people wouldn’t mind having a little more money in the bank. Maybe a lot more money. According to a 2008 survey by Pew Research Group, 43% of Americans report that being wealthy is “somewhat important” to them, while another 13% said that being rich was “very important.” Of course, wanting to be richer is one thing; actually accumulating that wealth is quite another. However, there’s plenty of research to support the idea that there are certain sorts of people who are likely to become wealthy — and I’m not just talking about the kind who were born that way. In fact, according to research by Fidelity, 86% of today’s millionaires are self-made. Check out 10 traits that tend to show up in the wealthiest people, and how those characteristics help them bring in the big bucks in my new post on WiseBread.
