The Cantonese expression 憎人富貴厭人貧/窮 (hate the rich, discriminate the poor) illustrated a mentality that is considered unhealthy. I am trying to find a simple description of this attitude
I came up with
小人心態 (petty-minded/ small-minded)
自大自卑 (arrogant and with low self-esteem)
So, the detailed description of 憎人富貴厭人貧/窮 would be 自大自卑的小人心態 (a pretty-minded, arrogant and low self-esteem mindset)
自大自卑的小人心態 sounds very wordy. is there a simpler term for it in Chinese or English?
Notice: 憎人富貴厭人貧/窮 doesn't limit to discriminate the rich and the poor, it also applies to discriminate the successful ones and the failed ones
Just think up 受害者心態 (victim mentality) -- everything bad happens to me is other people's fault
