What Motivates Us To Work? TED Talk by Dan Ariely

A very talented software developer sent this to me.

I really enjoyed this very popular TED talk "What Motivates Us To Work?"

Below is the description from the TED talk:

"What motivates us to work? Contrary to conventional wisdom, it isn't just money. But it's not exactly joy either. It seems that most of us thrive by making constant progress and feeling a sense of purpose. Behavioral economist Dan Ariely presents two eye-opening experiments that reveal our unexpected and nuanced attitudes toward meaning in our work."

I especially enjoyed the experiments,  the "Ikea Effect" and the Adam Smith vs. Karl Marx discussion.
