    Well, I'd like to see the thrust bearing(s) in your exact fan motor. 

    Without knowing, I would assume that the motor would have a similar life turning in either direction.

    No it will not lessen the motor life at all

    No, why would it? They are designed to work either way.

    If it was designed to operate in a given manner, troll boy, then it will not effect the life span

    No, the motor will not have a shorter life span no matter which direction it is run.
