What Is Intrinsic Motivation?

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

When you’re intrinsically motivated to accomplish something, you have an internal desire to achieve it; you’ll initiate the activity for its own sake, because it’s interesting and satisfying in itself. Intrinsic motivation stands in direct contrast to extrinsicmotivation, which happens when some external force (like a boss), influences, motivates or requires you to do something. Because of the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, we can, generally speaking, separate activities into two different buckets: tasks that we want to do and tasks that we have to do. Have you ever wondered why it’s so much easier to get something done when we want to do it? (Or conversely, why it’s so difficult to accomplish something even though we know we “have to?”) It all boils down to motivation — and more specifically, the dichotomy between intrinsic motivators and extrinsic motivators. Let’s take a deeper look and explore the role intrinsic motivators can play in business performance.As we established above, it seems much easier to get things done when we’re intrinsically motivated to do them, and research supports that hunch. Over the years, studies have shown that intrinsic motivators are much more powerful than extrinsic motivators.
