I suspect you've had a lot of bad experiences with scenario 1 Beingist. Any truth to that? I know I have. Personally I would love a good way to move the principal motivator in the economy going from number 1 to number 2.
of my experiences, bad or otherwise are with scenario 1 people. I've never, ever even met
any sincere scenario 2s or 4s (to my knowledge), and only one scenario 3 person (who was the CEO of my last job, and who deserves a special mention, because he was more about 1) making money and 2) providing people with jobs. Providing value was 3rd on that list).
