Search for meaning. They want to do things that contribute to improving society’s wellbeing and simultaneously, their own. Volunteer work makes The Independent happy. Career choices are also affected by the desire for a meaningful and significant life. Meaningful choices = A good life.

The importance of services. The Independent simplify and prioritise their lives, and invest in services. Even though they are family-oriented people, they love their “me time” and they use services to make more free time. There is always time for self-indulgence.

Food for wellbeing. Organic and locally produced food appeals to The Independent. They support local producers. They feel that organic food is healthy and good for you.

Do the things you love. The rest of the world disappears when The Independent are doing the things they love, including hobbies, such as skydiving, sailing, woodworking, cultural activities etc. They are interested in the world around them and thoroughly research the topics they find the most interesting.

Less is more. Quality is everything for The Independent and they are willing to pay for it. When they buy the things that they really want, price doesn’t matter. Heritage and the story behind the product are important. The Independent have cut down on consumption step by step and they sell or recycle the things they don’t need.
