Neither. With most things, I have competing instincts (see, e.g., Freud et al.).
Neither? Where your drive to pursue something comes from then? If it is not from you or others influence. You wanna get out of the discussion, don´t you?
Say yes, then we laugh, then you can get back to your normal life.
You clearly missed the message of my last post. I never copy the behavior of others for the sake of copying. That said, I do copy the behavior of others when it suits my desires.
Nor do I "do everything I want to satisfy my instincts". At times, restraint is necessary to satisfy competing instincts. Do I want to wake up every day and go to work? No. Do I enjoy the financial rewards of doing so? Yes.
It is not as black and white as your first query implies.
