I am considering going for a few certs (though I don't necessarily need them for work) and I was wondering if any other people get certs for personal fulfillment/fun. At my job, additional certs won't get you a raise or anything, but people do seem to give you A LITTLE more respect if you have them . I'm refering to more system/network admin types, as opposed to programmers (there are not a lot (any?) of people who just do programming where I work). A few of the certs out there look interesting, and it seems like more fun than blowing my money in a casino or something .

Well, I originally got my SCJP cert because I wanted to challenge myself and really kick up my skill level a notch. Studying for the exam and the strengthening of my Java knowledge were the biggest benefits I got from taking the SCJP. The paper itself hasn't done much for me.
