LESSON NOTES
============
Drives are in-born forces that direct our behavior. They come to the fore when we are under stress. They work towards meeting fundamental needs.

Motives are learned forces of behavior. Their origin is in our social experiences. They lead us to seek satisfaction and reward.

Motivation can be:
– extrinsic – offering us tangible rewards
– intrinsic – rewarding us psychologically

If our drives or motivations are blocked, we constructively or with frustration behaviors.

Some aspects of motivation are universal – others depend on the culture we find ourselves growing up in.

RECOMMENDED EXERCISE
======================
1. Continue to notice your own behavioral choices. Can you recognize the differences between innate, stress-triggered drivers and social, reward-seek motivations in yourself? Reflect on your experiences over the next week or so, and make notes in your journal, notebook, or workbook. (3 MC CPD Points)
2. Notice how you respond when you are blocked from doing or achieving what you set out to do. What kinds of constructive and frustration behaviors do you notice? Reflect on your experiences over the next week or so, and make notes in your journal, notebook, or workbook. (3 MC CPD Points)
3. If you have people with different cultural origins around you – or if you work with people across different cultures, notice how their motivations (a) differ and (b) are similar. If appropriate, speak with different people about their motivations and the extent they see them as culturally driven. (3 MC CPD Points)
