    Myth I: Social class is invisible.

    Reality: Significant correlation (r=.25) between self-reported social class and observer perception of social class (from viewing short video clips). Kraus & Keltner, 2009

    All you need is 15 seconds of speech to make those judgments, no additional benefit from longer exposure.

    Myth II: Social class is permeable.

    Reality: we vastly overestimate class mobility. Higher class people overestimate more.

    Self-described class (controlling for objective class) varies by race: Whites rate themselves as higher class than Latinx and Black. Data from general social survey.

    Myth IV: Racial Progress

    These results get me every time. Perception of progress far exceeds reality.

    Overestimation in part driven by belief in a just world.

    Everyone overestimates racial progress, but high income Whites overestimate most.
