Some importances are "negative"
« on: November 19, 2017, 06:03:02 am »
I just realized that certain things matter quite a bit to me but in a negative way. For instance, I do not like the cold. I do not like crowded cities. I do not like pollution. Now, if I were doing RI, the only importances I would create would be the opposite of those --- I would create warm weather, wide open spaces with clean air.

The reason this is important is that I am faced with a crucial life decision. And I realized that the way to make the decision is to figure out what maximizes what is important to me while minimizing the things that are important in a negative way.

As Life would have it, it seems that things are perfectly balanced between what I really like and what I really hate --- if I deal with the cold, crowded pollute spaces, then I can get a job with a lot of money. I dont deal with the cold, crowded, polluted spaces, then I am faced with a much harder path to getting a lot of money.
