The 3F Theory

Three things drive action & motivation:

  1. Fame - The need to seek public approval, traits like honor, respect, family name, etc.
  2. Family - The assurance of safety and security. Traits like being a homebody, family, taking care of others, club membership, small social groups, cliches.
  3. Fortune - Driven by metrics/money/competition. Driven by the excitement of the chase, need of logic and security of numbers, traits like competitiveness, excellence, being the best or worst.

There are no absolutes. There are both good and bad aspects to these three characteristics.
