Correction of a Dopamine Study's Conclusion on Willingness to Work vs Regional Dopamine

Beneath the immediately-below example is what I stand by as a  correction, reactive to the 2012 study: http://news.vanderbilt.edu/2012/05/dopamine-impacts-your-willingness-to-work/

That someone could look at these results and conclude that smarter people are just lazier, without explanation and despite all logic, blows my mind and suggests an inherent arrogance in those managing the study's results. Laziness is purely of Prefrontal Cortex domain - Lethargy is of Anterior Insula domain.



--- example of why dopamine is not Reward ---
In contradiction to the conventional assumption: Dopamine is required to have thoughts for employment in actions, to at all first be able to receive a potential reward. Simultaneously, personal efforts and works that go unappreciated or under-appreciated doesn't just provide no-reward, but even deflates a person's constitution - yet the tasks were completed all the same, and to quality level, so where is the reward for what was definitively done? Emotions of shared-connection are not rewards, they're encouragements and excitements - both those things are premier, while reward is caboose. Also, how is something that, downgrades the pace/number/scope of thought-processing when it's reduced possibly a reward for it, if it doesn't react to the thought-environment but the thought-environment reacts to it? Obviously, it's been given the incorrect placement in a process - making any designation that moves closer to the reality, better: 'thought-processing fuel' physio-fuel, physio-energy, physio-drive seem to be appropriate in my current perspective.

The "less willing to work" Anterior Insula dominant person:
- has a higher number of thoughts on the task and its better goal
- has larger awareness of customization-possibilities and branching-options for whatever job
- can do the job at a higher quality and with greater efficiency
- their determinations from sensory-data provides them with notably-deeper details, delivering greater default-accuracy,

But all these increased details mean that there's a whole lot more to calculate and process - possibly by factors - so even an equal-level of prefrontal-etc dopamine would be insufficient, and present them as very-tired before the outset of a task. Since having those advanced capabilities directly results in a significant amount of affirmation-deprivation from all sorts of sources, they are even further lethargic. And because of that, all their advanced capabilities would become debilitations, and they could not possibly work at parity. To make things equal, as much as can be, and to make both persons experience and hold an equal level of energy, fortitude, and control, the advanced-capabilities person would require an upregulation to the point that they have no lethargy, no slowed thoughts, no stress, and also excess prefrontal etc dopamine that will cover all the additional process which will be produced from engaging with the task

In all cases, Anterior Insula dopamine level is the barometer which determines what is optimal and most-healthy for the Prefrontal Cortex and Striatum regions. With either prefrontal-etc dopamine heightened-excess or deficiency, there will be loss of self-control. The heightened-excess will have difficulty restraining actions of want, and the deficiency will not have the energy to do, think, engage, and will be impacted by mood.

Too much excess will facilitate:

impulse behaviours
selfish tendencies
possible decline of moral considerations

Deficiency will impose:

lethargy
pain of all sorts
lack of focus
difficulty thinking

Despite the possible appearance of pros/cons to dominance of either disposition, the traits that characterize the successes of the prefrontal-etc dopamine-dominant person will be present and then comprehensively-evolved in the anterior dopamine-dominant who is receiving prefrontal-etc dopamine supplementation to make matching the expendable energy-reserves between the two cases.
Outside of targeting a prefrontal-etc dopamine-dominant’s energy for
Typical prefrontal-etc dopamine-supplementation for an anterior insula dopamine-dominant would be established exclusively according to their brain-regions’ existing dopamine-levels, targeting a final prefrontal-etc dopamine-level that proficiently-receives, without any down-weighing, all incoming process-designations from the anterior insula, with significant extra dopamine-provision to handle all interactions and encountered-challenges.

In a somewhat-sardonic, but genuine and applicable perspective: The significantly prefrontal-etc dominant person probably experiences much of their success and satisfaction by the undue total-condition and concession that interacting with them is demoralizing and damaging to the anterior insula dominant, who experiences reduction of their affirmation-dopamine, deflating their focus/energy/awareness/decisiveness, rendering them incapable for dominant-role positions. That, in turn, enables the less-capable and considerate to fit as naturals for decisive and directing high-pay roles - but a duplicate example-industry which, conversely, saw those roles filled with people of anterior-dominance, having their prefrontal level either upregulated to match energy-parity or simply being adequately-high naturally, would output a quality and efficiency that's incomparably superior, and of much greater moral responsibility. That difference, I think, would establish a completely different business world-scenery than what we're now familiar with, and one that remains thoroughly unknowable ahead of it becoming the reality.


Because strong prefrontal-etc dopamine dominance most-easily exists where anterior insula dopamine-level is low, its heightened-presence can erroneously be attributed with producing
Prefrontal-etc dopamine-level impact can be all-ruling on a person’s functionality, but it is not directly determining of either character-quality presence or absence – although it will make outward-presenting whatever character-qualities are established by either high or low anterior insula dopamine-level.

presumed as producing commonly-accompanying traits, such as workaholic, selfish-tendency, sociopathy, poor-reasoning and understanding,

While one who is strongly prefrontal-etc dopamine dominant can produce workaholics, to selfish-tendency, to sociopaths with no considerations for others, heightening anterior insula dopamine levels progressively reduce selfish tendencies and non-objectivity, all the way up to being inescapably hard-coded as self-objective, and never experiencing some more crude selfish emotions, which exist only in the absence of large-enough comprehension and understanding - those being what generates compassion and accurate consideration of details.

In the cases of both prefrontal-exuberance and prefrontal-depletion dopamine environments, there is possibility for environment-correcting:

- Anterior-dominants with prefrontal dopamine-upreg (I think best via a yet-unmade cocaine-analog and not an amphetamine, like Adderall, because amphs stupidly boost adren (anxiety/stress and health-risk - for what?) and deliver small dopamine uperg / cocaine gives strong dope and lowers adren for pretty accurate circulatory-compensation - almost like made for this purpose + is short-termed, 30-minute complete wear-off till complete normal, rather than prolonged


- Prefrontal-etc dominants can probably get some proficient comprehension bumps in meditation, and fill their understanding head-room to develop thought-stream to utilize their available bandwidth
