To date, the most popular calculator we’ve ever developed is our What Is Your Income Percentile Ranking? tool, which we suspect is so popular among a large number of our tool’s users for two reasons:
- It allows people to anonymously find out how favorably they rank among others, feeding their egos and leading them to feel undeservedly smug.
- It allows people to anonymously find out how unfavorably they rank among others, feeding their envy and stoking misplaced feelings of inadequacy–driven rage.
Today, we’re going to introduce a new tool that is specifically designed to satisfy these exact same emotional needs for both these types of tool users. One that will once again allow them to anonymously compare themselves with others in a way that will either provide them with some sense of secret satisfaction or that will only confirm their secret shame. Because that’s the kind of emotional payoff that these types of users are really seeking when they use tools like our income percentile ranking tool without any understanding what that information is really communicating.
But if you’re one of these kinds of people, we’re not going to be responsible for encouraging your emotional state. In fact, we’re not even going to tell you why you will be absolutely compelled to not just use the tool, but to tell all your friends about it.
All we will tell you about the tool is that the math is based upon the results of actual scientific research and that, as with our income percentile ranking tool, the emotional outcome for you will be just as useful.
So what are you waiting for? If you know you want to find out your percentile ranking, and we know you do, you need to enter your data in the tool below….
If you would like to put your results into a geographic context, Doc Palmer can help you out with that, and also provides some important information that you might need to optimize your data entry.
Finally, to our friends at FINRA, we won’t keep you in suspense for a month this year: Happy April Fool’s Day!
