    AlfredoPrietoMa Thanks. Yes, Social Influence and Relatedness, along with Ownership & Possession, are in the middle so they could go either black hat or white hat depending on if you are in control or if it is controlling you.

    Can’t wait for the next episode. I would love to bring this to the Spanish community. I’ve seen you come often to Spain (or at least EU). How can I help to bring this to the “next leveeeellllll”?

    JoseManuelRodriguez Haha, if there’s good conferences in our area, do make a referral to me ;-) Also, feel free to translate anything I write to Spanish. Maybe you can even write the Spanish version of my book. Hope all is well with you!

    Social Influence and Relatedness plus Meaning are a big two driving my life. However, I thrive on measurable Accomplishment as well. I wish I could make more things measurable. :)
