How Many Different Types Of Motivation Are There?

I believe that there are three main types of motivation – “Natural”, “Fear”, “Booster”, which are each driven by two sub types – “Attitude” and “Incentive”.

“Natural” motivation is the most common type of motivation and happens the most often. It is the motivation people get when naturally motivated.

“Fear” motivation happens often within the workforce when under pressure to complete a task.

“Booster” motivation  is normally self driven to overcome a task you have set yourself.

For information on “Attitude” and “Incentive” motivation please see previous article – “Two Types Of Motivation”, Jan 2008.
