We all know how much America is into image and status. So what are the status symbols of today — the things that people use to determine if you've made it or not? A similar survey conducted in the 1980s listed such things as car phones and a dishwasher. Other items from the '80s survey included owning two cars, having a color TV and having a sun room.

Today's list is much different, as you might expect. But what did people think were the top 10 status symbols of 2014?

1. A fancy car.
2. A designer watch.
3. A swimming pool.
4. Flying first class.
5. Owning a second home.
6. Having a tennis court.
7. Sending your kids to private school.
8. Having a vacation home.
9. A home with electric front gates.
10. A nanny.
