In a 2016 study published in the Association for Psychological Science, researchers at New York University claim that, compared to the working-class, the rich aren't as likely to notice or be interested in the people around them.

 "Social class affects information processing in a pervasive and spontaneous manner,"

Compared to members of the upper class, members of the working class have a more interdependent and holistic social outlook. Along the same lines, working-class individuals have been found to more accurately judge others' emotions and feel more compassion for others' suffering.

This study now posits that the contrast "may have as much to do with attentional neglect as it does with reduced empathic ability."

(But it doesn't explain why when standing at the bar waiting to be served, i'm always ignored as if i'm invisible)

Attachment difficulties in members of the upper classes may be explained by amongst other things "boarding school syndrome". There was an interesting article in the Telegraph, of all places, and there is lots of information on the psychologically detrimental impact of disrupted early years of children cared for by a succession of different au pairs and nannies.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/secondaryeducation/11662001/The-tr...

For those interested in Attachment Theory, John Bowlby described his own experiences of boarding school in his book Seperation, Anxiety and Anger where he states " I wouldn't send a dog away to borading school aged 7".

I suppose at least coming from a long line of scum protected me from the ravages of early years care in the capitalist class. Worrying thing is that governments world wide are pushing harder and harder to get workers of both sexes away from their infants earlier and earlier, and getting parents back into the ranks of the exploited.

I also know what you mean about being ignored at the bar, I sometimes think I must be wearing Harry Potter's bloody cloak!

On the first day of a world of free access. I will jump behind the bar myself and serve you, i will pull the beer pumps for you all. We can then toast ourselves for a change.

Plus the pork scratchings are on me.

Analysis of information in Psychological Science from more than 16,000 participants from two studies has revealed links between challenging behaviour in childhood and political discontent. 

Naughty children are more likely to be left-wing.

However that does not mean that left wing adults (I assume the research makes no distinction between left wing and socialist) are likely to have been naughty children.
