Extrinsic and Intrinsic Motivations: How Do Managers and Leaders Balance Them?


Extrinsic Motivations

Extrinsic motivations come from the outside world. Some call it peer pressure, social pressure, social norms, social values, etc. Many of these terms are looked at as negative. But many of them are necessary for social, moral, and economic stability. The term “pressure” implies that the person wants you to conform to something negative. But in reality, most of the “pressure” is to conform to the “norm” or to become the most “functional”. The highest level of functioning is “success”.

We measure extrinsic motivational success against the outside world, “achievement”, “recognition”, “status”, “promotions”, and “financial rewards”. 

Intrinsic Motivations

Intrinsic motivations come from our inner world. Some call it personal purpose, personal growth, life goals, charity, and social interests. These motivations are not measured against the outside world.


The key is to balance the need for external validation (Extrinsic) with self fulfillment (Intrinsic).

The Paranormal Psychology Processing Theory For Counseling, Social Work, & Management Training: By Tres Mali Scott, M.Ed., M.S., Ph.D. (ABD)

Picture 555 Individuals have real life situations that the most likely responses are “Beneficial Behaviors”. Within these situations, behaviors are judged for functioning and appropriateness in the context of diagnosis for pathology, harmfulness to self, or harmfulness to others.

Beneficial Behaviors:

  • Define what behaviors the person is actually doing.
  • Define what individuals and groups that influence them want as behaviors.
  • Not all beneficial behaviors look “Beneficial” to others. What is the benefit to the client as a result of these behaviors.

The Technique of Paranormal Psychology Processing Theory:

  1. Asking a question, then allowing the client to talk through to a solution.
  2. The question is asked in a way that allows the client to verbally list the consequences good, bad, or neutral. (Consequences are literally the result of a behavior, could be good, bad, or neutral-Positive or negative. Generally the word consequence is connoted as negative results).
  3. Allowing the  client to verbally list how someone else’s behavior influences their decision making and “Beneficial Behaviors”.
  4. Allowing the client to think through what their behavior is doing-the impact of their behavior.
  5. Interjecting-conversation with the client that allows a list of as many consequences as possible.
  6. Allowing the client to develop moral and ethical evaluation and judgment skills, to increase the acceptability of  the clients “Beneficial Behaviors”.
  7. Allowing the client to investigate if their behaviors are beneficial and how.

The Function of the Paranormal Psychology Processing Theory:

For the client to have “Beneficial Behaviors” that are acceptable to society, school setting, or if management training-the organization. 

The Purpose of the Paranormal Psychology Processing Theory:

For the Client to figure out the “Beneficial Behaviors” that cause the highest levels of functioning themselves, so that they reinforce themselves. Punishment only suppresses the behavior in front of the punisher.

As a Management Training Technique Paranormal Psychology Processing Theory’s Goal is:

To get the employees to figure out to follow the rules to reinforce themselves. To assess what are the “Beneficial Behaviors” in getting along and success in the department, field, organization? Are these “Beneficial Behaviors” acceptable? Are the “Beneficial Behaviors” requested acceptable? Are your behaviors beneficial, how?

The Paranormal Psychology Processing Theory for Assessment:

The lists of “Beneficial Behaviors” tells what the authorities, persons in charge, or parents are encouraging. Is what the authorities, persons in charge, or parents encouraging considered acceptable “Beneficial Behaviors”.

The “What About”:

     Some clients can not see if behaviors are beneficial or not.

The “What Happened”:

     Explaining the situation and defining the boundaries or parameters of the “Beneficial Behaviors”. Keeping things in context.
