Motivation Questionnaire:
Personal Interests, Attitudes and Values

What if you could pinpoint just what it takes to make you feel good about your job? Your relationships? Your everyday life? Imagine how much better your choices might be.

The deceptively simple questionnaire on this page does just that. And it's 100% money-back guaranteed. Better yet, ask about applying the $75 cost of this evaluation to your coaching package!

Here are some results others have had by using this tool:

"Being able to see what really motivates me has made my life easier. I no longer waste time and energy putting myself in situations that lead me to procrastinate and feel overwhelmed. What a relief." S.B., Michigan

"Knowing more about who I am has helped me with all of my relationships - both personal and professional. Especially now that I'm making so many changes in my life, having this information is making the decision process so much more clear. No one should leave home without it!!" B.N., San Francisco

"This assessment has given me clarity about what makes me feel satisified and what makes me feel uncomfortable. Even more, it has helped me understand how I'm different from others and what I need to do to relate to them better. I recommend this assessment to anyone who is striving to make positive, healthy changes in their life." D.O., Los Angeles

Personal values are those interests, goals and preferences which guide our lives and careers. This instrument is designed to help you determine which particular area of preference is most important to you.

Mark your personal preference in each of the 12 areas listed. Rank each of the 6 statements by indicating your choices as follows: your first choice is 1, your second choice is 2, etc. For the 12 groups, each number (1-6) must be used only once and every box must have a number in it.
