Am I working class? Is this person middle class etc? These questions aren't particularly good, class analysis is not like a horoscope where you have an identity. It's a macro view.

Asking, am I working class is like asking if a particular drop of water is a cumulus cloud or the sea. That's the kind of questions or viewpoint that class is well-suited to. It's not great at the interpersonal stuff

@KingMob Althought treating class as a boolean is indeed stupid, there are some frameworks that treat class in ways usefull for analising interpersonal dynamics (but usually in terms of group settings instead of dyads).
