b. Economic; (emphazising useful and practical values; 'average American businessman'
c. Aesthetic; (placing the highest values on form and harmony; judging and enjoying each unique experience by its grace, symmetry or fitness)
d. Social; (altruism, philantropy)
e. Political; (primarily interested in personal power, influence and renown)
f. Religious; (mystical, concerned with unity of all experience, and seeking to comprehend the cosmos as a whole)
