Related Words, Beliefs, Background for Choice #45

self test A on the above           self test B on the above   


I aim to maximize well-being, while minimizing consumption and eco-logical footprint.  I like the 5 “R”s: reusing, repairing, recycling, refusing to buy what I don’t need, and reducing waste. I like voluntary simplicity, and "small is beautiful" appropriate technology which has no significant environmental impact and takes advantage of what is abundant (including human labor).   I don’t think "more is better" and like the freedom to take personal responsibility and say “I have enough!” (Note: many have no choice and practice enoughness out of necessity, beginning with
frugality /making do.")


I prefer experiences / things that are richer, bigger, louder, longer, faster, stronger, with more features etc. It’s human nature to seek status and prefer winning over losing; being associated with powerful things whether they be machines, houses, cars, human body parts etc rather than feeling small, weak, and powerless. I like having the freedom to generally have more! (Note: With “prosperity theology” or “abundant life” some connect this with religion / New Age thinking. Critics point to traditional religious vows of poverty / asceticism, and “live simply so that others may simply live.”)
