The Motivators Report


Our Motivators Assessment combines the research of Dr. Eduard Spranger and Gordon Allport into a single, in-depth diagnostic revealing your inherent motivations. While we are all aware of our motivations to some degree, research shows that successful people share the common trait of exceptional self-awareness. 


Exceptional self-awareness means you are better at recognizing opportunities that correlate with your inherent motivations, thereby increasing your likelihood for success.

Using information from this report you can quickly recognize situations that will make you more successful. As such, it can make it easier for you to find ways of achieving objectives that resonate and align with you motivations. You will also understand your limitations and where in certain situations you will not be as effective.

The Motivators assessment identifies seven potential “drivers” of motivation which exist in everyone, to varying levels. By taking detailed measurements of these seven key impulses, the Motivators assessment is able to offer the practical applications and insights necessary to maximize your performance. The seven potential “drivers” are:

  • Aesthetic - a drive for balance, harmony and form.
  • Economic - a drive for economic or practical returns.
  • Individualistic - a drive to stand out as independent and unique.
  • Power - a drive to be in control or have influence.
  • Altruistic - a drive for humanitarian efforts; help others altruistically.
  • Regulatory - a drive to establish order, routine and structure.
  • Theoretical - a drive for knowledge, learning and understanding.



I have taken a DISC assessment before and wasn’t sure whether I wanted to take a Motivators assessment, but I’m glad I did, as I thought they would be the same but they are definitely different! I really liked reading the Motivators adaptability page and thinking about answers to some of the questions on the page for when I need to adapt.
