Motivational aspects of individuality

Motivational aspects of individuality arise in the lime-light of hardship or set of circumstances that causes discomfort or suffering. For instance, One Mr.M. was an agriculture laborer after he had passed his 8th standard examination. Five years were elapsed in earning the money to meet all expenses related to his family members and the kitchen. He was advised to take matriculation examination as a private candidate and free tuition was provided by me for a few months. In between, he has joined as a text books packer in ‘sales book depot’ of the state government through employment exchange. He passed the matriculation examination as a private candidate for that he had joined the coaching classes in a private coaching center too. After tenth, I remember, he had passed the senior secondary school examination. When he retired from the job of state government text book depot, he was the manager of the district text book sales depot.

Prior to proceed with the motivational aspects of individuality, it seems pertinent to explain what individuality is. Individuality is that which distinguishes the individual from all other individuals of one’s socio-economic status. It is the sum total of the unique qualities of the individual; the integration of an individual’s traits. Individualization is the process of becoming an individual, in that, a strong attitude of personal independence is required, besides, the theory that individual effort and initiative should take precedence over the action of establishment or social action, if one deserves, be implemented. The motivational aspect of individuality is that which makes an individual of fierce aspect or an individual with a serious aspect. Moreover, motivation is an intervening variable used to account for factors within the organism that arouse, maintain, and channel behaviour toward a goal, meaning thereby, that motivates or that which is the motive to incite to action or to serve as an incentive or goal. It is clear by motivational hierarchy:

Motivational hierarchy. The theory proposed by Abraham Maslow that human motives form a hierarchy with the primary or physiological drives on the bottom, safety and security next; then gregariousness, love, and affection as the next highest category; prestige, power, and possession are immediately higher than gregariousness, love, and affection; self-actualization, the need for knowing, and aesthetic needs are the top of the hierarchy.
