Motivation and Personality

Personality theory and research show that we are, in fact, motivated in different ways based on our personality traits.

A high level of a particular trait will often make us act as the trait implies: we will be more open to experience, conscientious, extraverted, agreeable, and neurotic.

We will be motivated by different incentives, goals, and activities but also choose to be in different situations

If we exhibit characteristics at one end of a personality dimension we will seek out, create, or modify situations differently than do individuals at the other end of the spectrum.
