Each Perceptual Style becomes inspired to take action ...
... based on different factors
Your Perceptual Style and Self-Motivation
In its simplest form, self-motivation is the ability to get yourself to do something, creating personal enthusiasm and the inspiration to take action.
Self-Motivation is a critical life skill because it keeps you putting one foot in front of the other every day.
There are things you want to do based on the level of satisfaction you expect to receive when you do them. Having fun is a great example.
And there are things you must do to attain something tangible (like money or things) or intangible (like control or status). Going to work is a good example.
Self-motivation is what spurs you to action for both what you want to do and what you need to do.
Each Perceptual Style has a unique skill set that supports self-motivation
Perceptual Style Theory™, created by Gary M. Jordan, PhD, and Lynda-Ross Vega, defines six unique Perceptual Styles.
Perceptual Style represents a unique grouping of fundamental aspects of being human that results in a distinctive experience and characteristic behaviors.

Not Sure? Would you like to get a taste of what your Perceptual Style and a few of your strengths may be?
We’ve created an introductory sample assessment just for YOU!
The more you know about your Perceptual Style, the more you can tap into your natural strengths and potential. That’s because there’s an extensive set of skills and behaviors that naturally align with each Perceptual Style.
The alignment of skills and behaviors with Perceptual Style exists because people naturally see the things associated with their Perceptual Style. Those things are easy for them to grasp, understand, and use.
Awareness of the other five Perceptual Styles and how they differ from you provides incredible insights about your relationships with family and friends.
The truth is, what you see is real for you but what others see is real for them. We all use the filter of perception to make meaning for ourselves.
All six Perceptual Styles are normal and healthy ways of perceiving the world. None is better than or more accurate in its perception than any other. Each has unique strengths and specific blind spots. All shine in some situations and struggle in others.
Let's take a look at the ways the different Perceptual Styles deal with Self-Motivation (Creating Personal Incentive for Action):
You are motivated by the opportunity for activity and new experiences.
You approach challenges head-on with the conviction that the only way to figure them out is to take action.
You need your role and contribution clearly outlined.
You share your self-motivation and enthusiasm to enroll others in your activities.
You are motivated by the opportunity to acquire knowledge for yourself and to provide knowledge to others.
You create comprehensive and sophisticated storage and retrieval systems for the information you gather.
You appreciate the process of thorough research.
You seek complete solutions to problems.
You are motivated by opportunities to make and nurture connections and build community.
You like to be involved as part of a larger group.
You feel at a loss when snubbed or excluded.
You want quiet appreciation for your contributions and efforts.
You are motivated by the opportunity to be in command of yourself, others, and the environment
You enjoy directing others and drawing out their best efforts.
You create arbitrary deadlines to push yourself to higher levels of accomplishment.
You value discipline, focus, and achievement.
You are motivated by the opportunity to create structure and provide practical courses of action.
You want to be acknowledged for your rational, fact-driven understanding and expertise in specific subject matters.
You enjoy finding the most effective and efficient ways to be productive.

You create new opportunities from everyday experience.

Self-motivation is the catalyst for goals you make for yourself. Self-motivation creates your desire to accomplish your goals, establishes your commitment to action, and helps you overcome your fears of the unknown or failing.

Documenting YOU has never been easier. The Internet-based Celebrate You! assessment takes 30-40 minutes and if you are interrupted, you can save your answers and continue at a later time. All the questions are neutral and noninvasive: you’ll be asked to rate which adjectives you most identify with, creating a highly accurate psychological portrait. And best of all, you’ll receive your results and the Celebrate You! action guide within a few minutes after you submit your assessment.
Imagine the personal confidence and self-esteem that will be yours with information like this at your fingertips:
Social Interaction is essential to your life. What's also interesting is that you will thrive in some social situations and surroundings and be miserable in others. Why continue guessing which is which?
Communication is vital. We all want to be understood, yet we experience disconnects with others that get in the way. How you see the world and make it meaningful to you has everything to do with how you express yourself and how you listen. Why not tap into your communication strengths right now to ensure the important connections you want?
Self-motivation spurs you to action for what you want to do and what you need to do. Why waste time with procrastination when you have the natural skills to tame it?
Some conflict in your life is inevitable. Whether the conflicts are minor or severe, you possess natural skills to help you deal effectively with opposition and disagreement. Why suffer through another uncomfortable conflict with someone you care about when you could use your strengths to diffuse and resolve the situation easily?
Change is constant; it's part of your daily life. Your adaptability strengths mean the difference between excessive worry and stress versus dealing with changes on your terms. Isn’t time to bring your strengths related to change out in the open?
Real leadership success happens from the inside out - using your natural strengths to guide and inspire others to great achievement. You are presented with opportunities to lead every day, in all aspects of your life. Why not harness your natural leadership skills and take the stress out of leading?
Persuasion is a critical life skill. Convincing others to agree with your point of view, adopt a particular perspective, or take a course of action you suggest is something you need to do every day – at work, at home, at school, with friends. Why not tap into your natural abilities to persuade with ease and confidence?
