    To die.

    It'll probably be fulfilled.

Wherever the seed drops, it will strive to live out the potential in it, whether it has to overcome less than suitable soil, bend this way or that to get the best light, etc. It simply is itself. And human beings strive to be who they are as much as possible. Just it is much more complicated than being a plant or animal because part of our nature is to have conscious awareness of a level of existence that plants or animals are not bothered about. Plus we have choice between what is good for our nature and what is not good for it. Whereas a tree cannot consciously do something against its own nature. It can only be a victim, like if its environment is polluted and it sucks up chemicals from the ground that are bad for it.
    Love the comparison.

    The ultimate motivation for doing anything is one's own happiness. I think we differ only in the method used to try to obtain that end.

    Sorry but I don't believe in this statement. This is not true for everyone. Like for me, yes we often try to have fun and be happy, but that's not my ultimate motivation.

    I believe it is based on the person's dominant function.

    Then what is your motivation? Your dominant function can affect what make them happy, but I doubt any healthy person is adverse to being happy.

    Ensure that other people are okay and at peace. It's been known to me for a while.

    I can't remember if I posted in here or not. Anyway, my purpose:

    Be a good, healthy, happy, productive person. If I have kids, help them to be/do the same. Have fun and make people smile. There's probably more I'll come to understand as I get older and wiser.

    I guess that's another one - gain wisdom, experiences.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Do I need a purpose? I'm just here for myself, for now.

    I'll do whatever I think is right, I'll be a good person etc. but I'm not here to do that. That's just who I am. If I find a purpose later in my life, then so be it.
