In the "A Millionaire Next Door" book, authors mention people, who do not have money but behave as they did. Apparently, a Texas saying for such people is "big hat, no cattle".
I am reading posts from people of all ages, who describe their meteoric rise to wealth, getting a large inheritance, etc. In your opinion, how often such posts are fake or exaggerated? Have you met folks who create an empty image of wealth? What are their motivations, aside from vanity? I know we do not have hard data on this, but let's speculate.
(I do not mean any particular post or user here, it is a general question.)
