  6. 6. 6 Motivator Categories <ul><li>Theoretical </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The discovery of truth. The chief aim in life is to order and systematize knowledge for the sake of knowledge itself. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Utilitarian/Economic </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Practical interest in money and what is useful. Time and resources are meted out with an eye to future economic gain. </li></ul></ul>10/08/10 © Copyright 2010 Data Dome Inc. Page:
  7. 7. 6 Motivator Categories <ul><li>Aesthetic </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Interest in form and harmony. Life is a series of episodic events, each enjoyed for its own sake. Has a heightened sense of beauty and inner vision (not necessarily talented in creative artistry). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Social </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Inherent love of people. Seeks to eliminate hate and conflict. Other persons are ends in themselves (not means). Altruistic, kind, empathetic, and generous, even to their own detriment. </li></ul></ul>10/08/10 © Copyright 2010 Data Dome Inc. Page:
  8. 8. 6 Motivator Categories <ul><li>Individualistic/Political </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Power, not necessarily politics (most leaders). Others may be seen only through their own eyes and used as simply the means to an end. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Traditional/Regulatory </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Unity and order. The need to be regulated or the need for structure from an outside source. Seeks to comprehend the cosmos as a whole and to relate themselves to a global totality. May alternate between the negation and affirmation of life, or seek mystical oneness. Dislikes change and chaos. May also exhibit inflexibility with regard to their convictions. </li></ul></ul>10/08/10 © Copyright 2010 Data Dome Inc. Page:
  9. 9. Values <ul><li>Values interact with one another. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Most of our studies show that two or three values will be dominant and impel action. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The very lack of importance of particular values can be significant in itself, since it shows the relative priority of the dominant motivations. </li></ul></ul>10/08/10 © Copyright 2010 Data Dome Inc. Page:
  10. 10. Values <ul><li>Values can and do change over a period of time. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Some values eclipse others as needs and wants are satisfied. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Values are also affected by interactions with family, friends, teachers, religious issues, geographic location, the media, leaders, and so on. </li></ul></ul>10/08/10 © Copyright 2010 Data Dome Inc.

  11. 11. Motivators and Behavior <ul><li>When Workplace Motivators are combined with DISC behavioral assessments, the picture of the individual is complete: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The HOW: how he or she will behave </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The WHY: the values and motivational drivers behind his or her actions. </li></ul></ul>10/08/10 © Copyright 2010 Data Dome Inc.
