The Motives, Values and Preferences Inventory (MVPI) describes personality from the inside-the core goals, values, drivers, and interests that determine what we desire and strive to attain. By assessing values, you can understand what motivates candidates to succeed, and in what type of position, job, and environment they will be the most productive.
The MVPI includes the following scales:
Recognition: Wanting to be known, recognised, and appreciated
Power: Wanting to be in control, to succeed, and create a legacy
Hedonism: Wanting fun, variety, excitement, and pleasure
Altruistic: Wanting to help, serve, and encourage others
Affiliation: Wanting frequent and varied social contact
Tradition: Believing in personal customs, duty, hard work, and respect for authority
Security: Need for predictability, structure and order
Commerce: Interest in money, profits, investment, and business opportunities
Aesthetics: Need for self-expression, wanting to infuse quality into the look, feel and design of work products
Science: Enjoys research, interested in technology, and prefers data-based decisions
