A rule someone else probably already invented

An incentive in any plan whether economic, physcological, or just someone giving a dog a bone is dependent on what that incentive means to the reciever and their interpretation of it. Hence any plan that rests on the idea of incentives driving people to a certian goal or standard will invariably fail as the people partaking in it not only become desensitized to it, but all begin to redefine the reward in their own mind. We do not have standard selves or standard meaning and the differences between what incentives mean to each individual means that you can’t get a steady response especially the simplier the reward becomes. (I think people often respond to complex issues similarly and simplier ones do their frequency meet with more different strategies).
