VEDIC SOCIAL SCIENCE : THE SPIRITUAL BASIS OF CULTURE
The political person sees it in terms of political power, national identity, party affiliation etc. The religious person sees it according to his belief and judges people by theirs. A subclass like the artist sees it in his way, according to his aesthetic values. 

If our primary goal in life is pleasure we develop a servile attitude in life. The pursuit of pleasure is the pursuit of the external, coming under the influence or domination of the senses, which places under the control of our environment and its sources of pleasure and pain, reward and punishment. We pursue immediate sensation and gratification, which in turn deprives us of a life plan or purpose through which we could master our destiny. 

If our primary goal in life is wealth we develop a commercial attitude. We see things in terms of how much money we can make through them or how much property we can accumulate by them. This also causes us to manipulate the world and other people to gain more for ourselves. If our primary goal in life is power or status than we develop ambition. We want to become somebody, gain recognition, become famous. We create followers for ourselves and subordinate others to our drives. If our goal in life is knowledge than we develop the intellect. We seek pleasure, acquisition and achievement through the mind rather than through the body, senses or outer world.
