Good to know

Be yourself

When taking the test, try to answer questions as faithfully to your motivations as possible. If you don’t, you will likely receive inaccurate results.

Keep an open mind

It’s important to remain open to any indications of motivation you never considered before, and to realise that motivations often shift over time.

Don’t stress

Try not to let stress get the better of you. When you stress, you are likely to overthink your answers, and this can affect your results and career matches.

Don’t worry about failing

There are no right or wrong answers in this test. When completing the test, just try to think about what motivates you to do a job and nothing else.
