Extrinsic Incentive Motivation

Extrinsic incentive motivation is motivation that people receive from outside sources. Unlike internal or intrinsic motivation (i.e. satisfaction from a job well done or for doing something positive) extrinsic incentive motivation is propelled by external rewards such as money, titles, admiration, or power. It is the primary motivation for most people's work. For instance, how many people would stay at their jobs that they really don't like if it wasn't for the need of a paycheck?
