Thanks Maarten and thank you for disagreeing with me, as it opens the door for meaningful discussion. I contend people do pursue happiness foremost because they invest their time in things that make them feel good. For example, being in a committed relationship, having a satisfying career, money in the bank, good health etc. These are all aspects tied to the pursuit of happiness.

I get what you are saying and I am completely satisfied with your main contention, however actions speak louder than words. Most people’s actions leads to pursuing happiness irrespective of whether they recognise they have a purpose, let alone pursue it. All the best!
