Your Personality As A Photographer

What Motivates You?

We aren’t all motivated equally by the same things. Finding fulfilment and happiness in our work can depend on whether our specific motivating factors are being catered for or not. It is easy to think only about money as clearly we can’t run a business without it. However, you might find that neglecting creativity or helping others, for example, leads to you feeling fed up and empty. If we can find ways of meeting our motivational needs through our work then it can help make our businesses more sustainable. 

Try the quiz below to discover more about your motivating factors. Choose the option which best fits your ideal. Please note that we store your answers & score to help us create learning materials. Taking the quiz gives us your permission to do so.

Motivating Factors Tested For:

This list isn’t necessarily exhaustive and you may find that you have a combination of motivators, or possibly even that they are so evenly distributed that it is hard to pin down which matter more. The motivators are inspired by research into a variety of factors including Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, theories of reward and motivation for employees in businesses and other questionnaires such as Motivational Maps.
