Indira, they should have included (IMHO) an option “Prefer not to say.” Some people have a problem talking general finances; others, not so much. I’ve seen other surveys (haven’t taken Medium’s yet) where questions like kids, gender preference, even gender have a NOYDBMF [none of your damn business, my fellow!] option. I suspect whoever did this one for Medium isn’t as experienced as Alexainie.
