We humans are born to be “players” and NOT “pawns”

Right from the caveman times we are born to be autonomous individuals , not individual automatons.

Our brains are wired to be intrinsically motivated and hence we are inherently “Type I ” individuals.

Outside forces including the very idea that we need to be managed have conspired from time to time to change our default setting and turn us into “extrinsically motivated” Type X individuals.

To return us from Type X to Type I where we are out our autonomous best just needs infinite minded leadership and creation of a conducive environment built on trust.
