Extrinsic VS Intrinsic motivation

BY: Dylan Van Dusen

Extrinsic Motivation

is when I am motivated by external factors, as opposed to the internal drive. Extrinsic motivation drives me to do things for tangible rewards or pressures, rather than for the fun of it.

Intrinsic Motivation

is when I am motivated by internal factors, as opposed to the external drivers of extrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivation drives me to do things just for the fun of it, or because I believe it is a good or right thing to do.
