Drive motivations test.

In just 10 minutes you’ll finally know what really motivates your candidates and employees.

It's like reading their minds.

Drive allows you to easily understand what propels each of your candidates and employees. Gone are days of endless hours of interviews, asking the same cookie-cutter questions and getting the same cookie-cutter answers. Everything you want to know will be laid bare.

The Self-Determination Model.

The criteria we selected for drive is based on Deci & Ryan’s Self-Determination theoretical model, which advances that it is impossible to motivate a person in the long-term through extrinsic motivation alone, such as compensation or social status. It highlights the paramount importance of intrinsic motivation, including the need for competence (being capable of doing what we are asked to do), the need for autonomy (being able to autonomously overcome challenges through creativity) and the need for relatedness (being surrounded by people we can rely on for support).


Feed your intuition with data.

In just 10 minutes, Drive allows you to collect solid data on what guides your candidates and employees’ behaviour every day. It provides a ranking for 20 key motivation factors, pinpoints preferred activities, determines their leadership style as well as the management style they respond to best, and the cultural environment they seek… No other tool can give you so much quality information in such a short amount of time.

Coherence control.

We’ve integrated a powerful algorithm into our Drive test in order to control the coherence of responses given by candidates and employees, and accurately measure the level of spontaneity with which they build their profile. This gives you an immediate indicator of the degree of reliability of the results.

Response items


Predictive validity (X̅)



By calculating reliability indicators we can ensure the coherence of the items used to assess each criterion in Drive, as well as the stability of the measured criteria over time.
Our reliability studies address the internal consistency of each of the scales (Cronbach’s Alpha), as well as test-rest reliability.

Cronbach's alpha (Mdn)


Test-retest (Mdn)



By calculating sensitivity indicators for each of the motivational criteria assessed by Drive, we can verify the capacity of the module to accurately distinguish individuals from one another.

Our sensibility studies focus on determining Delta Coefficients. On average, these indicators are almost 2 times higher than those recommended by the most stringent international psychometric standards.

Possible configurations



We have developed measures to ensure Drive does not put any category of respondents at a disadvantage, including selecting criteria highly relevant to professional contexts and conducting an impact study to validate obtained results in regards to age, gender, origin and disability. We have also reduced the amount of personal information collected to a strict minimum. Additionally, we provide clients with predictive models that enable them to contextualise the results of each respondent.
