    i dont really get all the fuzz around money either, because all the things money can buy just start to feel like a norm after you had it for a while, so you need to get better stuff to replace the what has gotten a norm now in order to feel satisfied again or you just start to get hungry. however that satisfaction isnt happiness, even tho most people cant differentiate the two. im not saying that having money isnt fun or necessary for living, but getting few coins for selling art that you have made and are most likely proud of is just stupid, thats just trading happiness to temporary satisfaction and if you also need to work for making that trade, it just doesent make much sense. i would understand if it was about selling prints and not the originals and you could get a living out of it, but if its like few hundred you get from few hours of work, meh, i rather write shit on typoc and watch youtube

    Why are you so anxious to make your bro into something he is not? He's happy where he is. Maybe worry about your own stuff?

    There's nothing wrong with him. He doesn't value money. It's part of the charm of some INTPs.

    I agree with what @Moniker @tanstaafl28 and @andante said. Some people just aren't very motivated by money. If they are happy that's what should matter. Just leave your brother alone and mind your own business.

    Especially since "becoming rich" is an empty end unto itself. I can't relate.
