Prepare: In our careers, we are typically driven by two different types of motivation: extrinsic and intrinsic. Extrinsic motivation is fairly easy to identify, because it relates to external, tangible rewards for doing our jobs. Paychecks, bonuses, praise, and benefits such as vacation time and health care can be considered extrinsic motivators for coming to work each day. Intrinsic motivation is different because it is an internal process that is based on one’s values and interests. Intrinsic factors are described as pride in one’s work, the ability to gain knowledge, and the ability to contribute. The interactive activity above provides further insight into intrinsic and extrinsic motivators.
