Extrinsic and Intrinsic

Motivated Behavior is typically driven by one of two forms of motivation.

  • Extrinsic- motivated to perform an activity by gaining a reward and avoiding punishment.

  • Extrinsic comes from within.

  • Intrinsic- motivated to perform and activity due to your own personal reward, goal and/or interest. 

  • Intrinsic comes from outside forces.

( Both are derived from some type of incentive. )
