Tradeoff's in Human Desires

As humans, I believe we share a set of conflicting emotions/desires. Accepting the paradox, and then gradually learning to navigate them may lead to a fulfilling life.

We share tradeoff's in :
  • Experience Seeking: There is a desire/thrill in learning new things and experiencing new environments/situations.
  • Problem Solving: I believe humans are problem solvers having an innate need to "figure it out". This is linked to our ability to change/manipulate the environment and thus, experience a degree of control where there might be none.
  • Stability: We have a bias to the familiar and seek comfort in rituals and routines. Love is also a part of that stability seeking behavior; in a environment that can feel all too familiar a loveless affair.
