    -55, so no privilege for me!

    Being gay screws my privilege over, it would seem.

    Got 60, so just got into the "Privileged" area due to adding +10 for attractiveness (I sure as hell ain't disfigured!).

    I don't see why Jewish gives more privilege than Christian? Surely that depends on the country. In the UK Christianity is by far the majority, is it not?

    Edit: And I agree with a previous comment that education should also be a factor. And family status too, like living with parents/parents divorced/orphaned, or for 'independents' - married/children/single. Something like that anyway.

    Given the maximum is 1,230 I'm not. Even when it's 230 if we take plutocrats out the equation it's still way under half, the scale in the pic is *******s.

    I don't think the country bit is where you're from, but rather where you live

    Odd table, why are scientists considered a neg factor on privilege?

    It was also a bit strange that atheist is considered neutral, nowadays in the UK, I would suggest religious affiliation is fairly strongly aligned with poorer groups and atheism is more aligned with affluence.
    I'd assume because scientists don't tend to earn much and well at least with Jews we all know the old folk tales about Jews being successful and rich bankers etc etc
