New ideas and experiences. This one is most important for the artist / logical theorist, who really need to experiment and expansively express their thoughts and feelings, but it’s equally important for those whose “safe space” is clarity and concrete definition. And I think anyone can play here — so long as the ideas are manifesting not just as “thought exercises” but as actual, tangible tries(tying back up to one of the first two) and ideally with one or two of them sticking, at least for a bit.
Objective, external measures. It’s so tempting to think of this as “internal logic,” but it’s not. It’s about tangible and measurable. It’s about playing in a space where there’s a winner and some losers and the rules are clearly defined, and there’s no wishy washy negotiation. It’s about clear and hard results, from machinery to Monopoly to mutual funds.
People. And conventional social values. Of course. But it’s more than passive consumption of others. Active engagement in conversation, the human experience, human values and fears and aspirations and motivations and influence. Test things, play with things, see if you can make people happy. See if you can get them to share.
