About Motivators

Motivators reveal the things you really care about. They are what makes you want to learn, what grabs your heart, and what gets you excited. Motivators correlate directly to fulfillment and meaning so most people are happiest selecting a major and career based on their top two motivators. The Indigo Summary page displays a graph on the bottom left corner ranking relative passion for each of the six Motivators. The graph ranks your Motivators in order from most important to least important, with the 1st being the motivator with your highest score and the 6th being the motivator with your lowest score.

Write a Motivator Statement

Your Motivator Statement should be a short statement about your top two Motivators, what they mean to you, and how they show up in your life. For example, someone who has Utilitarian #1 and Theoretical #2 likely wants to use their knowledge to make money, so their Motivator statement could be something like –

“I love learning about animals and I want to use what I’ve learned to make money.”

Once you have come up with your statement, go to your website and create an “About Me” section. In this section, enter your top 2 Motivators and write a Motivator statement. Guided instructions and video for how to do this are below.
