Ok, now this might be a stupid thread, in which case it’ll probably get deleted. But I thought I’d explore the psychology of a person living damn near the edge of the poverty line or somewhat close to it. I’ve only come across a handful of people that fit this category, but a surprising majority of them have a playstyle which suits the phrase “I just don’t care”.
Here’s a case in point, let’s just call this guy “bob” for anonymity. Bob has an amazing repertoire and is well known throughout his community. Bob has also won SBO before. He is a fan favorite to some as well. Bob is also poor.
In a brief description of his playstyle (I would disclose which game but that might be a dead give away), he plays with many risks and rarely plays conservatively. Now assuming you only have like $1 to spend in the arcade (that’s roughly about 4 games worth), what possesses an individual like this to play so wildly and without regard to many other things that richer people think about?
