I don't know that I'd use the term profit, but getting a paycheck is a huge motivator. I think, on more simple terms, we all need money to live, so we work. If we want some of the nicer things that require money, we work harder.

Sometimes it is one of only two

This question could've been worded better. "Profit" is a very, very loose term. Anyone who works does it for some kind of profit.

I agree with Jesse. And I would say greed is the strongest motivator.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Thursday 6/15/06 - 12:58:24 AM EST (GMT-5)
Most definitely.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 6/16/06 - 3:48:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes I think so
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 6/24/06 - 8:42:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
Security. I would deffently pick the thing that won't kill me over the thing that will.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 6/24/06 - 9:31:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Profit motivates most people. Not: helping someone out, being nice. Just greed. It's all Me, Me anymore.

sometimes people do stuff out of greed, but not all people
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 7/2/06 - 1:31:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think so.

I want enough money to live adequatly - after that, I don't care about money.

People are motivated by love, family, morals, and a host of other things.

No, not at all. Negative Reinforcement is WAY stronger then positive reinforcement!!!

Unfortunately, yes. As far as I'm concerned, greed is part of human nature, all though there are exceptions.
14 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 11/11/06 - 12:37:35 AM EST (GMT-5)
sadly yes
14 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 11/25/06 - 3:15:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes most people only do things for monetary gain
14 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 11/27/06 - 5:08:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
Money....yay.
14 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Monday 11/27/06 - 9:00:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think profit is the only motivator for most people.
13 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 4/6/07 - 11:12:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, more money = more stuff
more stuff = show off, or live easier
more stuff doesn't = happiness
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 5/2/07 - 2:38:05 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah..People are greedy
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 5/2/07 - 3:49:00 AM EST (GMT-5)
Well, it's the value of things. If I was offered some cash for doing something I thought less valuable than that, I'd do it. otherwise, meh. I don't think it's the thing that controls me... yet.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Wednesday 5/2/07 - 10:35:15 AM EST (GMT-5)
I would say that profit and success is the biggest motivation for people.
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 5/7/07 - 7:14:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
id say that or striving to survive
13 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 5/7/07 - 7:34:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's the only thing that motivates me to go to work.
