Motive assessments

(Link)
I've started calling the Power motive the "Influence" motive to avoid freaking people out. In English-speaking countries "Power" is a negative term. It isn't everywhere (it isn't in French, for example).

It is possible to be high in all three motives, you know...as indeed I am! Do try the Picture-Story Exercise, however--it's hard to score on your own, so I'd suggest getting the CVS together and share stories, because it is easier to score someone else's than your own. (Especially if Power scores high!)

There is that section in my book on having all three motives high--in some ways I've expanded on it here, but I probably wrote more clearly in my book!

Good luck on the workshop--read the workshop section; it might help.

We did the picture story exercise in combination with the hobbies/et al chart in the book. It was very interesting! (I scored equally in all three in both types of exercise). Some people were very surprised to see their results. It was fascinating.

Aha! So you are in the "confused" category, eh? I am delighted that people were surprised to see their results--that probably means it was working! Nonconscious motives and conscious values have no relation to each other, but people know their values. If they got different answers from what they expected, it probably did indeed tap into their motives.
