    I can understand that, but I didn't see your value of wealth as expression of a selfish drive to accumulate excessive wealth.

    I had an appreciation of beauty as one of mine and there is a side to that I would see as superficial and not value, but I don't think my appreciation for beauty manifests in that way at all.

    If it matters, even if I don't share the value for wealth, I respect someone who would value the platform of freedom adequate financial resources can provide.

    Thanks. And I really think the only reason for my high "independence" score right now is because I don't really trust anyone right now... especially after this whole fiasco where they're thinking about being unfair to everyone and removing anonymity. I'm disgusted by the whole thing, and it's undermined my faith in people... hopefully only temporarily.
