    Default Is money more important to you than what you're doing or vice versa?

    I'm wondering this. Pretend that you don't need money, just pretend, Would you take a job that earns a ton of money, but disliked. Or a job that earned a little money but loved?

    edit: To clarify: Money is no concern in this situation.

    I don't care about money that much, of course I've never had to do with out. I'm sure if I had to, I'd feel differently. I live off very little a month, parents help me out a little, but I'd rather have a job I enjoy than a job that I was earning tons of money.I suppose if I had grown up poor I'd feel differently. It could also be the fact I'm an NF

    I'm assuming I still need to work to have this money. Because if I didn't need to work, I'd be doing volunteer missions of some sort. Or being lazy.

    It depends entirely on the job vs suiting my needs. What I've always wanted out of life requires money (traveling.. You don't need much, but to do it right you do need it.) and so if I found a job that allows me to do that, I'd work it whether the actual job sucked or not.

    If traveling had to be done on my personal time, I'd take a crappy entry-level job that I could disappear from for weeks on end without people whining about it vs a good job that required me to be there reliably.

    I guess I should have made it clearer. Money isn't a concern in this situation, you have at least the basics covered, and are able to do whatever you want. Now you can't afford 72 siberian tigers (let's be reasonable)

    I'm doing a new volunteer job which I absolutely love. And even though I'm earning no money, it's worth it to me. I'm gaining skills and I'm helping people learn english. I help adult students who don't speak english and it's great. I love it. Once I get more experience, I'm interested in going after a paid job as a classroom aide in adult continuing education classes. I don't want to teach a bunch of people at once. But I am good with one on one.

    No tigers?! Do not want. >:c

    Kk. In that case I think yeah, I'd stick to a crappy entry-level job that I didn't totally hate but I didn't love enough to dedicate real actual time to either.

    Well of course I'd do the job that I love. If money is irrelevant then why would you take a job that you liked less?
