    Default Shepherd, scholar or bartender; what would you rather be?

    If you could choose out of the three out of the hypothetical professions; what would it be?

    Shepherd
    - Huge plots of land, your own food/livestock, live within your means, off the grid/not having to conform with government/societal norms/rules, enforce your own rules own your property, etc.

    Scholar - Very well known/admired, numerous works/publications, very wealthy, prominent pioneer/revolutionary worker in your field, many connections in society, etc.

    Bartender - You own a very successful establishment, converse with many interesting people day in and day out, very laid back atmosphere in the bar, you work from early morning to early evening, converse with usual patrons/regulars whom you are good friends with, etc.

    “The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.”

    I prefer elements of all three but if I had to choose one I'd prefer the Shepherd. I don't like to be bothered.

    I'd rather be a bartender:

    You get laid a lot.

    You make cash money every night, and lots of it, if you are good.

    You get to meet lots of interesting people.

    You get to throw out the people you don't like.

    You get laid a lot.

    You get to avoid working behind a desk.

    You tend to work unsupervised.

    You get laid a lot.

    Interesting that you say that; I noticed that people are usually a mix of these personalities or simply one or the other. Shepherd symbolizing a longing for a simpler life; modest, yet entirely individualistic. Scholar symbolizing a longing for the acquirement of power and influence; endowing a person with the key ingredients for this. Bartender personifying the everyday man; not too modest nor overly-socialized; representing a balance between socialized power and individualized modesty.

    Thanks for answering philosophically broski!

    I pick...

    The high end PIMP - You start as a mexican street drug dealer in an American suburb. You beat street rejects before slowly but steadily climbing the social ladder. You sell your junkie girlfriend but are smart enough to think bigger business. You buy a handful of women and end up as a dubious whorehouse manager. You become a top tier pimp. You are wealthy, successful, feared yet admired. You meet interesting people every day. You have a gold tooth, wear a silver chain and you consider shaving your chest hair a sign of weakness. You get paid to slay bitches.

    Scholar of course, but PhD lengths in the US are absolutely insane (4-6 years, possibly 7 at Harvard), I really can't believe it.

    Scholar. I'd like for my life's work to have influenced the world in a meaningful way somehow. But Bartender would be my second choice, just seems like a fun lifestyle and you'd probably hook up with a ton of babes.
