1. Aggressively challenging a person to justify themselves in language the adviser is capable of comprehending.

They may have better priorities than the investment banker with veneers, but they practice the same “the best deserves only the best” elitism that is short on joy and contentment.
And if you think all this is solely the province of the 1 percent or 1 percent wannabees, know that there’s a hipster out there somewhere striving for the most ironic t-shirt and the best, most effortless cool.
