"It ocucurred to Ishida that instead of working to accumulate material things and attempting to become wealthy, people should view work as a way of developing character. ... Over the next several decades, Ishida's followers turned the concept of work from drudgery and an unwelcome necessity into a religious and philosophical experience. The more diligent the individual and the harder he or she worked, the greater the spiritual, emotional and intellectual satisfaction."

Boyé Lafayette de Mente in "The Japanese Samurai Code - Classic Strategies for Success" about Baigan Ishida and "The First Zen MBA"

I believe that this quotation may appeal to people with Connectedness who tend to feel being part of something larger, and to a minor extent also to those with Belief ("developing character") and Intellection ("intellectual satisfaction").

"There is no such thing as a "self-made" man. We are made up of thousands of others. Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us, or spoken one word of encouragement to us, has entered into the make-up of our character and of our thoughts, as well as our success."
