The nature of my most pressing need(s):
What if I or we were born in a pre-computer era?
I believe we do what we do to support our social life.
Perlmonks.org is about socialization not about work or Self-Actualization
I think if some poeple code or WORK on their computers because they enjoy it then it's a social habit! not a work habit! Even if they get paid for it.
That is why some people are happy at work and others are not, because their work became a social habit!
Self-Actualization won't be as needed If you live alone and no one else recognize your sucesss!
Therefore I must say that We (human kind) are all about socialization!
