"One of the theories that gives great insight on the first question - how to be sure we find happiness in our careers - is from Frederick Herzberg, who asserts that the powerful motivator in our lives isn’t money; it’s the opportunity to learn, grow in responsibilities, contribute to others, and be recognized for achievements." [1]

It's not what motivates a scientist's argument that determines its validity; it's the quality of the evidence and analysis that the scientist uses to support the argument. [2]

The scientists who contributed to the Manhattan project had the powerful motivation of ensuring that Adolf Hitler, then consolidating power over Europe and crushing the freedom of people there, would not get a super-weapon. (Discussions of Hiroshima and Nakagasaki tend to focus more on laments that 'innocent' civilians were killed, rather than on satisfaction that 'guilty' dictators were stopped; see Ethics of World War II.)
