What motivates human behavior?
Is it 'avoiding discomfort' that motivates all human behavior? Humans act based on their needs and in one way, they can be said to act in order to avoid discomfort as unsatisfied needs lead to discomfort.

Do you agree?
I tend to think that humans are inherently prone to instinctive actions (I use this word to avoid the labelling of good and bad, at least for now!), and thus any rule or policy goes against their will. It would be adhered to as long as the individual and collective needs (as aligned to the self) are satisfied. And perhaps that is why we see societies evolve to the everchanging needs and desires of the sub groups contained within.
I dont want to delve too much into imagined situations but the basic premise of this thread is to suggest that the instinctive nature of humans is to seek pleasure and avoid pain (dianetics anybody?), in whatever form and substance it may be. That is why we find even those purported of high morals and ethics falter at times.
The primal nature of humans. Avoid discomfort - no holds barred.
