Level of Motivation That a Person Has Depends Greatly on the Personality of that Person..........
on the personality of that person. If a person has the
personality of a quiet, shy type of person, their
motivation will come from living within that personality.
They are more likely to get motivated from different things
than that of a person who has a loud and bold personality.
If a person has a go-getter personality then their
motivation will be strong and vivacious, with a nothing can
stop them type attitude.
Personality has a big impact on how we are motivated in our
lives. Motivation and Personality are definitely connected.
There are three basic personalities that seem to be
motivation for what we do and who we want to become.
1. The need for power - this personality has a strong
desire or drive to make people act or behave in a way that
they would not otherwise behave.
This type of motivation is usually found in a strong-willed
person. They like to be in charge of situations. The
motivation is more for power and prestige than doing a
2. Need for achievement - this type of personality has a
strong drive to excel. This person usually strives to
succeed at everything they try.
They avoid really hard tasks as well as really easy tasks.
They like 50/50 odds and are not gamblers. The motivation
is to achieve it on their own with their own skills.
3. Need for affiliation - this type of personality has the
need for strong interpersonal relationships with others.
This person is usually a soft-spoken quiet individual.
This person strives for friendships. The motivation for
this personality is being cooperative rather than being
competitive. They seek mutual understanding.
There are also combinations of one or more of these types

one of these will cause undesirable results. The goals must
be possible to attain or they are useless to us. This step

essential part of learning motivation. There must be
rewards for a job well done. It is what keeps us going.
Motivation and personality do go hand in hand. As you can
see, different people and personalities are motivated by
different drives. Successes are measured by different
motivations and rewards.
Motivation is an essential life skill and you can discover
how to be motivated and stay motivated...
Although some lucky people seem to be born highly
motivated, if you are of at least average intelligence you
can learn how to be motivated. No matter how unmotivated
you have been up to now you can still become a winner.
A winner is simply someone who utilizes their resources and

to be a winner, look for the motivation and attitude to
help you succeed...
