ok, ran into a new question and almost :rofl: I never expected this question.

Why do people collect things? Why do people have such big collections? Why do you collect 3d puzzles? Why do you collect music? and lighting?

this is a hard thing to explain why do Americans collect things? what is the purpose? I was at a loss to explain it properly. It is something of the American culture.... just don't know how to explain it.... Anyone else ever run into this? or find a good answer?

Filipinos in the area asawa ko and the "family" is from do not collect much. or is this just something local to my wife's area in the Filipinas?

Commonly, Filipinos don't collect things because the hard earn cash is spend for the family than spending it to something not useful for daily living. I only know few who collect things and they don't buy it, usually given.

Filipinos spend money first for food, clothing, shelter and then likes or hobbies if it is affordable. Usually, Filipinos make things than collect.

In the 18th century collecting became a popular activity that could display both your devotion to a particular subject and your wealth. Usually this was somewhat more lofty in scope than "collecting 3D puzzles" though clearly some people were merely imitating a fad and were not true collectors, but rather mere hoarders. Common things to collect were art, wonders of the natural world, or prints.

It's meant to be a pleasurable activity that keeps on giving when you enjoy your collection. Something beyond yourself is meant to be gleaned when one takes a step back and marvels at the fruits of his/her labors.

It has remained popular since.

:ot2: they may collect money... but don't see much out of it.... they spend what they collect..... :blink:

in collections, I am referring more to those things which make no sense... toys, model trains, beer bottles, wine, magazines.... etc.... sometimes collecting is meant as an investment, provided it is something "worth" collecting.... but then again, you never know what is worth anything... like hubcaps or old cars..... just trying to see hwo to explain to someone who has never seen it or been raised around it, how to understand it....how do you explain something which you grew up around and just accept it????

let's give him another chance...

5 Most Common Reasons

Since childhood, most people must have had collectibles that they wanted to collect. The things people usually collect are those that they found interesting and meaningful to them. Collectibles can range from free stuff like leaves, rocks, shells, stamps, and bottle caps, to those that cost money like action figures, figurines, t-shirts, plastic and models. Collectibles can be anything, really, as long as the person who collects them believe they are worth collecting.

So what are the reasons why people collect them?

Satisfaction – We have to admit, some people simply love collecting things. Adding another piece to a collection gives the right amount of satisfaction for any collector. The feeling of accomplishment is much, much greater when the collection is completed.

Interest – Some people collect things that hold their interest. Some examples include plastic models for mecha (giant robot) fans or figurines for those who like cute stuff such as Precious Moments figurines. Some people’s collections would include those that are currently in style or fashionable for that period of time. The problem with following fads when collecting is that when it becomes out of date, interest in the collectibles drop drastically.

Fun – Collectibles can be fun to collect and some people do it for that reason alone. It is especially nice to see one’s collection growing and like what people would say in a party, the more the merrier.

Trading – Some people prefer to collect stuff that they know they’ll earn a profit from by trading with other people. Alternatively, there are those who collect things that they know they can use to trade for stuff that can be added to their own collection.

Selling – There are people who sell completed sets of collectibles for a high price as can be seen in many online trading sites. Some pieces, such as the rare, unique, or limited ones can also fetch a good price. People who sell pieces or whole sets can either be collectors who are just after the satisfaction of completing them and want to make a profit, or are simply in it just to make money.

The above are just some of the most common reasons but there are others as well. Have you ever had your own collection? If you have, what was the reason you did?

does this help... :unsure:
