What on earth makes you think that this is anyway unique to "techincal people"? To be slightly pithy: Money motivates most, but happiness motivates all. By which I mean: Everybody wants a job they enjoy doing. Everyone. Now this may or may not be possible depending on where the person's skills lie, but that in no way diminishes their wanting happiness. And of course, a large part of happiness in a typical job is making enough to feed, clothe, shelter yourself and so on, and obviously this desire for food and clothing is no way unique to anyone. So really, saying "techincal people are less motivated by money" is a silly, arrogant saying. Now you probably didn't mean it that way, but I wanted to point it out that your statement some how implies that "techincal people" (whatever that is) are some how better, because they're less interested in money. Which isn't true.
