Anissimov's phrasing is correct. The set of values we wish an external
superintelligence to satisfice or maximize is presumably a subset of the
values we wish to satisfice or maximize through our own efforts. What
you would-want your extrapolated volition to do *for* you, if you knew
more and thought faster, is not necessarily what you would-want to do
for yourself if you knew more and thought faster.
