Fundamental or Instrumental?

Are you a person who has chosen his or her career path for instrumental reasons? Do you do things, as Daniel Pink explains, "because you think it's going to lead to something else, regardless of whether you enjoy it or it's worthwhile"? Perhaps, it's a high paying career choice?

OR

Are you a person who has chosen his or her career path due to fundamental reasons? Have you chosen your college major because it will let you do interesting work even you don't know exactly where it will lead?

Why do you think you are a fundamental or instrumental kind of person?
