Which of these proposed teasers (to the same content) would make you want to click it?

1. Passion is bullshit

2. Goals are for losers

3. Lies that Billionaires tell

4. How Billionaires avoid looking like jerks

5. It comes out of a bull’s anus and billionaires can’t get enough of it!

6. How the rich keep you poor

7. Bad advice from rich idiots

8. The biggest lie that rich people tell

9. Can luck be manipulated?

I already have the opinion of an expert in this field. But I want a second choice to do some A-B testing on.

All of the teasers are honest representations of the material, at least so far as Internet teases go. And by that I mean that when you read the content you'd agree the headline made some sense with the material. It's a low standard. The headline is just to inspire curiosity.

Which one makes you most curious?

All of them look like link-bait.

TLDR:
2 is the only one I would click unless it was posted by someone I trust to post interesting links.

"1. Passion is !$%*!$%*!$%*!$%*! dull, most intelligent people know that luck is a major factor while passion gives you more opportunities to be lucky or unlucky.

"2. Goals are for losers"
Seems most interesting since it actually has got something to say.
Or, might have.

"3. Lies that Billionaires tell"
Snore.

"4. How Billionaires avoid looking like jerks"
Snore.

"5. It comes out of a bull’s anus and billionaires can’t get enough of it!"
Sensationlist crap,

"6. How the rich keep you poor"
Potentially interesting, might get a click.

"7. Bad advice from rich idiots"
Then why would I read it?

"8. The biggest lie that rich people tell"
Rich people aren't homogenous, so that sounds false.
Not interested.

"9. Can luck be manipulated?"
Depends on the defnition of luck, so, not interesting.

3-8 all look pretty good to me. 1 and 2 not so much, but only because they are topics Ive seen you write about before. 9 strikes me as truly unclickworthy.
