In case any of you were wondering where you "ranked" in the eyes of JW's worldwide.... this is what has been observed as general guidelines from people that have actually lived as a JW in the last few decades:
Let's start at the very top classes here on earth of actual PEOPLE or GROUPS:
"Faithful and Discreet Slave" - Now only the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses below - Removed
Anointed Ones - Removed
The Governing Body
Watchtower Attorneys (Brothers who are Attorneys or Doctors) (They get invited to live at Bethel at the expense of "the flock")
District Overseers - Gone....
Circuit Overseers (wives are slightly exalted)
Bethelites are in this general area depending on age and job description.... (Bethelite women? That was invented decades ago for them to have wives at Bethel.....then somewhere along the line they allowed some "holier than thou" single sisters in Bethel if they were RN's.... they didn't stay single long though due to a pillow shortage at Bethel one year.) But this oddity has shown up in recent years. Most JW's don't know how to deal with a single female bethelite since she is obviously trying to climb this ranking list.
Missionaries (Gilead Graduates) (wives are exalted)
Pioneer Elders (no bonus more than the elder's wife bonus)
RBC Elder (Now LDC member) (no bonus for wife....she never sees husband LOL)
Elders (and ranks among them) Presiding Overseer..... Gone
Watchtower Study Conductor (this title USED to mean something)
Theocratic Ministry School Overseer (this old title used to mean something)
Service Overseer (used to be the "pioneer elder above" often enough)
Pioneer Ministerial Servants
Unbaptized Male Publishers
Regular Pioneer Sisters
Auxiliary Pioneer Sisters
Regular Pioneer single sister
Auxiliary Pioneer single sister
Sisters who speak
Sisters who try to teach
Sisters who are educated with a career
Unbaptized Female Publishers
Non-JW Children of JW's
-------- Armageddon Survival Line -------- (if you are near this line your survival at Armageddon is in the "gray area")
Billions of innocent babies.... (well not innocent... they are baby vipers who should be killed along with the other heathens)
People with tattoos
Younger disfellowshipped people (crime was "immorality" which can be understood by most since they all masturbate and feel guilty afterward)
Disfellowshipped (former brothers and sisters)
Apostates who don't like the JW ranking system.
Did I miss someone or a rank? ?
@TrueTomHarley They should try being inclusive ...no need to track or keep records on people.
Instead they have setup an "exclusive" system with ranks even amongst themselves.

PIONEER: from Old French peonier foot soldier, from peon foot soldier. - Merriam Webster Online Dictionary.
Helping people in need is one of the cornerstones and most honorable pursuits in Christianity. It takes a spiritual person to voluntarily look after others who are incapable of taking care of themselves. But in the Watchtower world it isn't permitted if you want to remain a pioneer - only time spent preaching the Watchtower message counts, and is the main marker of spirituality.
Looking at this from a distance now, it is clear just how perverted this is....
