To learn the truth !!! and to figure things/problems out. To contribute to the betterment of mankind. Researchers in any field/discipline must have inquisitive minds, analytical skills, and a overbearing passion in the heart. They must also have the mindset of wanting to do something that is important, not for themselves and not to achieve recognition or monetary rewards but for society as a whole. Like educators, I think researchers play a hugely important role in developing people and concepts that will propel us all into the next generation and make the world a better place to be. Another big motivational factor in any type of research is attaining job/career satisfaction, knowing that your work actually means something and realizing that just anybody can't do what you do.
