The Self Motivation Quiz is all about finding out what makes you tick. What pulls you toward the things you are going for – those top 3 motivating types that make you get going.

The more you align yourself with what makes you tick, the more you’ll be magnetized to get there. You are motivated in a very specific way and you might not realize that. Your neighbors may get a kick out of being the “Joneses” while that guy at work gets his kicks off being a go-getter leader.

There are 9 main self motivators that pull you toward your goals. They keep you running along even at your darkest hour. They also provide the energy inside to stay aligned. This test is a good way to figure out what works with family at home, colleagues at school, work staff or employees, and with friends.


This test is 45 questions and should take less than 5 minutes to complete. If you’d like to know more about the quiz, check out the 9 Types of Self Motivation article.
