Intrinsic Motivation Test

The Intrinsic motivation test is a powerful measure to help understand the internal motivators and drivers of an individual. It identifies an individual's ideal role from a motivational standpoint, it can be used to determine whether a specific role will give them that 'buzz' to work well.

The Intrinsic motivation survey helps understand the motivators and drivers of an individual. Intrinsic can identify what an ideal role would be for a candidate from a motivational point of view. The tool measures what will give an individual the drive to convert competency into performance. What will make them ‘do’ instead of simply being able to do.

The Intrinsic motivation test consists of 105 questions and measures ten dimensions of intrinsic motivation which can be used to profile a candidate against any job.

Intrinsic helps predict how individuals will actually perform in the job - focusing on what they ‘will do’ rather than on what they ‘can do’.

The Intrinsic test of motivation can be tailored to a specific company or role.

Intrinsic offers you an understanding as to how an individual will convert competency into performance: that is, what motivates them to actually 'do' something rather than simply have the capability to do something which ability tests assess. It does not measure 'extrinsic' motivation - drivers such as salary or bonuses as these can be assessed during an interview.
