Let's look at all the different aspects of having, shall we say, a bit of attitude.

It is possible to quantify attitude. There's always a cause and effect in play in these sorts of situations.
And, if you work hard enough at developing an attitude, it will earn you quite a degree. A degree of what, well, that depends on how the others around you react.
And always remember - it takes two to tango.
