Interesting view. IMO, people who pursue highly paid careers are there to get paid. It's the most important part of their game. Getting paid is the only form of recognition that counts. Everything else is just 'noise'.

People who's priority is to feel good about themselves choose much less competitive careers. Careers where they are not measured by their market value.
