We all strive to achieve an absolute level. As different as we all are, achieving means different things to us all. Some want to be physicists, some want to teach. Others want to build the perfect program and push Microsoft over the edge. Still, in our pursuits we select refernce groups, or "types" that we aspire to be. What groups do you all reference? I'll give you mine to start. I'm a student of Psychology, so naturally Carl Rogers, Jung, Freud, and Dorthea Dix would encompass that part of my particular choosing. I also have profound respect for JFK, MLK, Nixon, Wayne Gretzky, Mikeal Gorbachev, Neils Bohr, and Edward Van Halen.
