<p>Prestige is my absolute priority. It's extraordinarily satisfying, regardless of how much I make.</p>

<p>Apathy, they're all important factors. For me, the differences between each one is slight, so the fact that one is ranked higher than another doesn't mean that I "don't care" about the lower ranked one. However, I have a hard time believing that you think a high level of educational attainment is more important than good health.</p>
