How to detect an extrinsically motivated person

I want to describe the faculty and staff meeting with HRO of the school “A battle of rewards and compensations in the name of Justice and fairness”.

The long waiting moment for the Retro of Advisory and Club moderator fees have been announced and confirmed already by the HRO of the school that these fees will given this coming payday, and it was such a beautiful song to the ears of all the teachers involve, including me.

I can’t help to notice but I saw some teachers who were so motivated to work just because of what they can get, just because there’s a money involve. There were questions regarding the teaching overload which the management won’t be able to compensate because of the lack of fund, the deduction about tardiness which was answered by the principal by raising the question “Is it ethical to be tardy?”, the substitution which will suppose to done because it is still part of the working hours and in the name of service, teachers are accountable for the welfare of the children.

In the meeting, teachers were so much concerned of what they can get out of their effort and work, and I think It’s their right and due to think that way but how ever there is beyond the reward of material things that we should be after for.

People who are just after the rewards of material are motivated extrinsically. Extrinsic motivation is both good and bad to some extent depending on the timing.

I saw some teachers who were extrinsically motivated and it’s easy to detect, first, it’s when they were much concerned of the material rewards, second, when they lose their enthusiasm in their work because they feel that they were unjustly treated and unjustly rewarded for the efforts and work.

When extrinsic motivation reigns it will kill the inner motivation which is the intrinsic motivation, which drives the person to do things for a higher purpose not just because of rewards. An intrinsically motivated person works even though material rewards are not included and involved, perhaps, Values and Virtues are what reigns in him/her.

All of us are sometimes extrinsically and intrinsically motivated to some extent, but we need to be aware what motivates us. Don’t let the material world governs us.

The Narcisstic World

The world is full of narcissistic being, I must include myself because I, sometimes,  am a selfish person in one way or another, making this world a dangerous place to live in.

People do things because of the very reason that their image are being crafted and enhanced in the eyes of other people which I think a very egoistic reason for helping, this is what others are doing when they face their facebook, twitter, and other social media accounts.

In a generation where in the self is most emphasized, the world is in danger.

Do you want to know more about your personality?

I got so fascinated with these 5 websites I read from readers’ digest magazine about personality test and I find it interesting and entertaining. I’ve tried them all and somewhat I got some info about my personality and the way I am. I came to believe some of them because they are somewhat convincing and positive in statement.

Maybe, they will no t be able to say all of us but somewhat they can tell something that we might agree with and we might as well improve with if we want to work on it.

Most of the info here came from reader’s digest magazine. Here are the five personality test you can have fun with. enjoy.

1. Test Color

Your favorite color can reveal a lot about your personality, according to the free Test Color quiz. Rank 36 color blocks from most to least preferred and vice versa, and you’ll reveal profile details that indicate the strength of your creativity, intelligence, and organization and decision-making skills.

2. Short Personality Quiz

Do you see yourself as critical and quarrelsome? Reserved and quiet? Based upon the Ten-Item Personality Inventory (TIPI), the Short Personality Quiz explains your scores as they relate to the Big 5 Personality Traits: extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, emotional stability, and openness to experience.

3. 16 Personalities

Based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), the 60-question 16 Personalities free personality test asks you to indicate how much you agree with statements like “You cannot stand chaos.” Like the classic MBTI, your answers determine where you fall on four spectrums: extroverted/introverted, sensing/intuitive, thinking/feeling, and judging/perceiving.

4. 41 Questions, 1 Personality

The 41 Questions, 1 Personality quiz is another free variation on the MBTI, but more black-and-white than shades of gray. Do you prefer “just whatever” or deadlines? Are you more likely to trust past experience or a hunch? You’ll find your unique personality type (“Determined Realist,” “Sensitive Doer,” and others) as well get career suggestions and a list of famous people who share your type.

5. You Just Get Me

With You Just Get Me, you’ll agree or disagree with statements about your leadership style, treatment of other people, vocabulary, and more. After taking the test, you’ll discover your personality tendencies “in a nutshell”: whether you’re disciplined/casual, abstract/concrete, neurotic/unemotional, cooperative/competitive, and extraverted/introverted.

Rituals or Worship?

Just this morning, we have had the launching of our one-week activity for United Nation, which will be celebrated late because of the many unpredictable circumstances and uncontrollable actions of nature.

I can’t help to comment if the launching activity were able to convey and condition the students of the theme of the activity which is “One for the family, the World and Mother Earth”, even the theme alone, I can’t even understand what it means.

During the launching, there were activities, most of it were dancing presentation, and they were really entertaining but I can’t figure it out what were they trying to say in their dances. I guess the discretion was left behind to the audiences.

Well, in my own discretion of dances, I always believe that when you present a dance you always have to consider your audiences. Age propriety must be considered. There are dances that I think really aren’t for young to do and watch. It’s not about if it’s beautiful but it’s about education of propriety, appropriateness is very important.

The launching was entertaining and a beautiful RITUAL as well.

Millennials Are People Too

just A thought…I wish I were not a millenial..LOL

"Be like Aslan," she wrote.

I’m tired, y’all.

Tired of not fully understanding my French reading. Tired of not having proper time to go the the Rec. Tired of my phone being broken.

Above all, dear reader, I am tired of being a Millennial.

Not because I’m ashamed of my Millennial brothers and sisters. Not because I wish I was born in another era (that’s a whole other story). But because I’m tired of being bashed in popular media.

I read anotherarticle the other day which sarcastically mocked 20-somethings. And it just might have been the straw that broke the 20-something’s back.

Hi, I’m an entitled and broke 20-something and today I’m here to share with you some tips and tricks to grocery shopping on a budget that I’ve picked up over the past year and a half. You see, I graduated college a year and a half ago and, without meal plans or…
