Identity

People who value hedonism are moved by their senses. They actively avoid suffering and seek experiences and things that give them pleasure. While popular culture focuses on the sexual connotations of hedonism, this value is about far more than sex. Good food, comfortable environments, and a focus on an enjoyable, pleasant life are all hallmarks of hedonism.

Love

Work

Caution

Conflict

Happiness

Hedonism in its most healthy manifestation separates the appreciation of pleasure and the cultivation of long-term sources of pleasure from the immediate and relentless desire for it. The distinction is an important one. A healthy hedonist will create a life that is full of abundance and pleasure and also appreciate all the little sources of pleasure in life. This means investing their energy into building a well of pleasures that can be drawn upon. An unhealthy hedonist seeks out immediate gratification at the expense of more long-term sources of pleasure and may find themselves running faster and faster on the hedonistic treadmill.
