    Other:

    To affect others and the natural world in positive ways and feel the exchange of energy between us as I do so. To be in the moment, while looking to the possibilities ahead of me.

    I want to respond before I read others' responses because I'm afraid the other responses would influence what I'd put down!

    Primary motivation: Hmm. To live life to the fullest (which tends to imply my aiming for a 'balanced' life, so as not to leave some path/perspective unexplored), gain the most knowledge and experience that I can out of life, and always try to find some peace/purpose in my life, and hopefully in the process contribute something to other people in my life, or to wildlife, or to some idea that I care about.

    Of the options achievement comes closest, on the level of learning and personal growth.

    Achievement.

    This means personal development on many levels, which includes family, friends, satisfaction, career, assisting others, appreciation, learning, growing, mind, experience, body, soul, heart, spirit, and lots of other good stuff.

    INTJ classic answer: Achievement.

    who cannot control their emotions, who wallow in sad
    memories and allow themselves to be provoked this
    easily -- weak people, in other words -- they stand no chance."
