Workplace Motivators

While psychologists have identified many lists of values, there are certain values that seem most appropriate to the business and career environment.

The Workplace Motivators assessment measures the relative prominence of six basic motives in personality: Theoretical, Utilitarian, Aesthetic, Social, Individualistic and Traditional.

This classification is based on Eduard Spranger’s book, “Types of Men,” written in 1928. In 1931, Gordon W. Allport and Philip E. Vernon developed an assessment to measure the traits postulated by Spranger. The assessment was called the “Study of Values,” and has been widely used to provide insights into the motivation of a given individual.

These insights apply equally to men and women. Allport’s research indicates successful women and successful men have similar values and goals.
