Frequently Asked Questions



How is MotivationFinder™ different from any of the other assessments out there?

Most assessments try to tell you "WHAT you are" by revealing some part of your personality. The results you get say things like "you are this" or "you are that" or "you are unique because."

In other words, they put you in a well-defined box, and then tell you what you probably already knew about yourself. Our experience with this type of assessment is that you look at the report, shrug your shoulders and then put it in a drawer and never look at it again.

MotivationFinder™ is different because it measures "WHY you are." Why you behave the way you do, why you want the things you want, why you need what you need, and when it comes down to it, WHY why you get out of bed each morning and what you ultimately want out of your life.

With MotivationFinder™, you get a key to unlocking the mystery of your behavior and a blueprint for putting your results to use in your life, work, and relationships.

Has MotivationFinder™ been proven? Is it scientifically validated?

Yes! We spent over two years working with a team of PhD psychologists and psychometricians, programmers, data scientists, and coaches to develop MotivationFinder™.

MotivationFinder™ is based on empirically proven psychological theory and has been scientifically validated using elite psychometric standards.

How is the Individual version of MotivationFinder™ different from the Coach and Organization versions?

The Individual version is for an individual person to discover, understand, and use their own results. If you are a person or solo-entrepreneur who wants to use it for yourself and to compare with a few other people, then the Individual version is right for you.

The Coach version is for a coach to use with their clients and includes modules that a coach can use to add and manage clients, view client results, add and manage teams, view aggregated team results, and for hiring. The Coach version also works well for a coaching practice that has employees. If you are a single-practitioner coach or a coach with employees, then the Coach version is right for you.

The Organization version is for an organization to use with their employees, teams, departments, and applicants. It includes modules to add and manage employees, view employee results, add and manage teams, view aggregated team results, for hiring, and for viewing aggregated results across the entire organization. If you are a startup with multiple founders and/or employees or any type of organization with employees, then the Organization version is right for you.

How do I go through the questionnaire?

MotivationFinder™ presents a number of items or questions for you to rate or answer. As you complete an item, you will automatically move to the next item. Even though we recommend you take the self-assessment in one go for best results.

What shall I take into consideration when answering the questions?

Just answer the questions how you feel in general. More important is that you are relaxed and not in a rush when answering the questions. And don’t think long and hard. The first intuitive answer is often the one closest to who you are.

Are there good and bad answers?

No. Just like a fingerprint can’t be good or bad, the same is true for your answers. Your answers reflect what you care about which is stable over a lifetime and where you have a current need that might not be quite fulfilled yet. In life everybody has their struggles at some point. That’s what it means to be alive. Anything you might consider less than perfect, only makes you human and beautiful. We are all a “work in progress.”
