Comparative appraisal of motivational objects as the work motivation diagnostics instrument
The aim was elaboration and standardization of new method, which could help to evaluate and forecast work motivation. The main purposes for elaboration were practice necessity and operational validity increasing. Research had in-group design and consisted of 3 stages: elaboration, approbation, standardization. Participants were instructed to compare 15 motivational objects (J. Nuttin) with each other using three graphical two-dimensional spaces. They did it step by step putting motivational objects markers in the frame of axis. Generalized R.A. Emmons's scales of personal striving assessment were used as the axes. Elaboration results were 15 motivational objects and 6 generalized R.A. Emmons's scales of personal striving assessment, organized in 3 two-dimensional spaces. Approbation results were 47 regression equations where depended variables were 47 widely used motivational scales, independent - Euclidian distances between motivational objects. Standardization is proceeding.
