Extrinsic vs Intrinsic

Anton and Alec


Intrinsic motivation is when you do something because of self-drive and you get satisfaction out of doing it. You want no reward for doing a job.


Extrinsic motivation is when you're motivated by external factors. Examples of this are doing something for money, a grade, praise, or a trophy. Most people are extrinsically motivated. A real life example is the school store; most of us work just for the grade.
