Thanks, this is an excellent reply. Sometimes you will find that someone’s goals truly are something different from what you might expect. But more often, I suspect that people aren’t fully aware of the trade-off or haven’t fully embraced it. I mean, so much of what we do is just because it feels right and not because we’ve consciously considered it and come to a decision. And, maybe I should have spent some time acknowledging this possibility in my post, because I definitely simplify the situation somewhat. I guess the point of this post is to be somewhat provocative, to point out ways someone might be acting that might not match their true values (here I mean values that hold up under reflection).
