Maybe it's not a surprise but it seems the concept of financial independence hasn't yet worked its way into the American dream. Or maybe it has but this isn't reflected in these results because of the way the survey was worded. There's not much a respondent can do when the survey questions confuse income and wealth. I think you paraphrased it correctly at the bottom, so if that's what they meant, then net worth is really off their radar.

My own take has been to focus solely on my FIRE number, the rest doesn't matter-- or perhaps it all falls into individual tastes once you hit your target.
