Since Pink is categorizing Type I Behavior as being dependent upon three elements I wanted to really reflect on these elements to see if they are the nutrients that nurture my motivation. According to Pink autonomy, mastery, and purpose are the essentials. Passion and true motivation lives within me when there is a true purpose in the work I'm doing and I'm driven by a moral obligation that will benefit the masses. I have to believe in the purpose of the work in order to be intrinsically motivated first and foremost. Once I'm connected to do the work in a moral sense I automatically engage in brainstorming solutions to try and reach some type of "mastery". In essence, I do believe that I require all three elements in order to be intrinsically motivated. When each of you reflect on what motivates you, do you require all three elements? Do you need more or less of one?
