    Again a really interesting video, thank you so much. When we get back to some kind of normal I would love to introduce you to our TED Manager where I work Mark, as I am sure they would be interested in what you are doing.

    Mark thank you for this. I am determined in the future to be more aware of negative extrinsic motivation. I see, in particular, how fear affects my children’s cognitive ability, for example in exam settings. I will share this video with my children aged 23-17 as I wish I had understood motivation better when I was younger. Thank you.

      Thanks Liosa for the feedback, great to hear it’s so useful to your children. When we are in the negative motivational space it’s not good for our performance in any context.

    Great video Mark. I found it very useful to see the different types of motivation organised and structured in the way you presented them. It made me think. And it applies to all aspects of life! Something I’ll keep in mind.

    Thanks for this Mark … badly needed to help me stay on track with my New years resolutions … I had been struggling with motivation until I came across this!

    Thanks for this Mark
    It has helped me put structure on something I have always know subconsciously… that I enjoy and feel better about things when I decide to do them just cause I want to. It has also helped to put a label on the negative type of motivation and clarified why I’ve been uncomfortable about my behaviour when stressed ., it has really made me think of the unintentional impact on others.

      Thanks for sharing Hash!

      So much of what we do is driven by what we feel others want from us and to please them. We have little control over the success of this as a strategy … is what we feel others want correct and even if it is, how do we know what will please them? When we act based on what we really want for ourselves the chances of success are so much greater.

    Great Video! I consider myself a well motivated individual but have never considered what is driving me. You’ve got me thinking and I will be sure to use the Matrix.

    Thank you.
