Who wants what?

| "Man never knows what he wants; he aspires to penetrate mysteries and as soon as he has, he wants to reestablish them. Ignorance irritates him and knowledge cloys."

I truly loved this summary from Seth Godin. And I believe that we all have each of those in us to varying degrees. Some are to be managed, some are to be silenced and some are to be encouraged.

The ego–seeks applause and recognition.
The lizard–seeks safety, wants to fit in and not be rejected or criticized.
The artist–wants to be generous, creative and make positive change with impact.
The boxer–wants to poke and be poked, seeks revenge and ultimately victory.
The zombie–wants to turn off and be entertained.
The philanthropist–wants to help, anonymously.
The evangelist–wants to spread an idea.
And the hunter–wants to successfully track and bring down a target.
