I am trying to describe the following kind of person/personality:
He who cares only about doing beneficial (or useful) things. Before any decision is made, he asks a question like "Will it definitely generate some practical benefits?" For example, before he chooses a subject to study, he needs to see first if the subject can lead to any good job, not subjects like pure mathematics or theoretical physics. Interest and curiosity are not the driving force.
His happiness comes more from his (material or physical) need being satisfied, not metaphysical needs like curiosity being sated.
How can I describe this "benefit-pursuing" personality? Is utilitarianism a right word? Is pragmatism a right word?
