What motivates is not simply the mechanical ability and financial reward, but the ethical value in the results. This list is somewhat more complicated and detailed than the two motivations given in the lesson! This is how I classified it.
No, Inspiration--Description of the Developed (Logical or Intuitive) Motivation
1. Due to frustration. For vengeance – taking revenge against someone or something as the result of hatred.
2. As an escape or distraction from danger, fear, pain, anger, great embarrassment, despair or boredom– by supplying a service, without the provider having a good reason for doing it (by his/her masochistically, slavishly or blindly following the demands of a leader or of a situation) and unequivocally accepting whatever motivations are implied– alternatively in extreme cases, by committing suicide.
3. From selfish desires, by seeking personal benefit. For reasons of pride – so as to obtain due recognition of ability or talent, by means of a demonstration of it to oneself and to others.
4. For the sensation provided--of answering curiosity, getting a thrill or sense of adventure, for the love of the action or the pleasure experienced by its execution. This includes the healthy aspects of the associated physical activity, felt or known to be present.
5. For individual (material-property or social-position) benefit, both work-related activities and ego-building in general--the planning, fabrication and distribution of goods items or the supply of services having commercial value. It includes the organization of employees and the control of and payment for their activities.
6. For "soul-status" – with the optimistic belief that the activity will enable the doer to obtain a better place in an after-life. Logically this consists of the voluntary acceptance of social responsibility for doing good deeds, to transfer credit into a Heavenly account. To give practical help to others,
and by the adoption of a compassionate non-materialistic or idealistic style of contribution.
7. As an expression of love or deep affection for someone, where the associated actions and their results are shared-- in many cases, this includes the conception and raising of children, thereby establishing a beneficial connection with posterity.
8. By the search for universal knowledge – to meet the need for the discovery/disclosure of scientific or technical facts and their greater understanding, with the intention of making the practical applications of these findings possible or easier to use.
9. By discussion of developing theories and common experiences-- for the subsequent spread of knowledge and technique, by teaching and the use of educational programs.
10. To provide social justice and for its means, by making some order and improvement to the world, by the conscious giving of ones time, money, energy, skill and intellect, for the benefit of neighbors, community and even for an enemy.
11. As a sign of religious faith, by spiritual identification. To glorify God, by religious observance.-- This includes the reciting with sincerity of various prayers, performing charitable deeds, joyful celebrations (feasting, singing, dancing, music, and generally showing happiness), the fabrication and use of well-illustrated books (for children), decorated articles of religious use, communal gatherings in elaborate or beautified prayer places etc.
