Intrinsic Motivation

The difference between extrinsic – and intrinsic motivation can be easily observed by looking at very young football players.  After a training session they are rewarded with chips and a coke. Those who go for the game are intrinsically motivated, will play at home as well and can become top football players. Those who come for the chips & coke are extrinsically motivated and will only play if rewarded afterwards.

The global results on BasicProfileScreen reflect Intrinsic Motivation, or a mixture of personality aspects that tell us what people like to do by nature in a professional context. The more job requirements ‘fit’ with the natural attitudes, affinities and drives, the more people are intrinsic motivated to do the job, the happier they are and the less they need external motivators to achieve.

Knowing people’s intrinsic motivation is beneficial for both individual and organization. Motivation to achieve.
