OK. We have to settle on some first-principles to begin with. What I've read is this: Self-identified (and that's what I was speaking to, their strong self-identification) contractors are people who, by their own admission, have _freely_ chosen to reject captive employment for the delights of contracting because they have the following characteristics or beliefs:

-=- prefer to job hop
-=- get bored at the same job
-=- intend to leave a company for greener pastures
-=- enjoy honing their particular skills on fast-paced projects because
it is intense and demanding and they always want that level of
work activity
-=- believe that opportunities for innovation will typically lie w/in
themselves at a new organization, rather then w/in themselves at
current org.
-=- believe that their lifestyle TENDS to discourage deadwoodhood (I
like that neologism!), whereas captive employment doesn't.
these are tendencies, not absolutes.

Does that sound right?
