Motivational DNA Profile Tool

This diagnostic consists of twenty-one pairs of statements that will determine a person's primary motivational type. Choose the statement in each pair that best describes the person as he/she has been throughout most of the time you have known the person. Click the circle to the left of the statement you have selected. At times, you may feel that both statements are equally true about the person, but if you were forced to choose between the two, which statement more accurately reflects the person's past thoughts and behaviors? If you reflect carefully, you will find that one of the statements has been truer of the person than the other. It is best not to overanalyze your choices. More accurate results will be obtained if you answer spontaneously rather than over thinking your answers. Click submit when all twenty-one questions have a choice clicked.
