Are you self- directed or self centered?


While taking a economics class the professor was talking about self- directed vs self-centered. In a free market people are assumed to be self-directed. The example he used was Mother Theresa. She was self-directed because she could have made lots of money lecturing and writing books, but she chose to work with the poor.

    Been reading about Churchill. He had an interesting life. Born into royalty the men in his family had a knack for going broke. He was expected to be royal, without money to live the life. He wrote to support himself when royals didn't work.

    Actually he is not liberal at all. Had a long chat with friends about this subject and semantics plays a big part in the question
