1 Category A people work primarily enough to support their lives outside of their jobs. If they were financially secure, they would no longer continue with their current line of work, but would rather do something else instead. They don't see their work as making the world a better place, nor are they focused on advancing to a higher level job. Their jobs are basically a necessity of life, a lot like breathing or sleeping. Category A people are eager to retire. 585 750 1335
2 Category B people basically enjoy their work, but do not expect to be in their current jobs five years from now. Instead, they plan to move on to a higher level job. They have several goals for their futures pertaining to the positions they would eventually like to hold. They don't see their work as making the world a better place. Category B people can't wait to get a promotion. For them, a promotion means recognition of their good work, and is a sign of their success in competition with coworkers. 347 290 637
3 For Category C people, work is one of the most important parts of life. They tend to take their work home with them and on vacations, too. They love their work and think it makes the world a better place. For them, work is about more than making a living. They are not focused on advancing to a higher level job. Category C people are not particularly looking forward to retirement. 570 613 1183
