Shaikh, Safiya 5/7/2009 Intrinsic motivation is when people engage in an activity, such as a hobby,  without obvious external incentives. It is the satisfaction a person receives in the  process of performing a particular action. This is the healthiest way of motivation  because, then the employee doesn’t just care about the monetary rewards,  status related, etc. Though this is by far the most effective way of motivation in  the long run, it does not always seem to work in 3 rd  world countries. This  technique of motivation produces different results in poor countries and those  that are not as poor. In 3 rd  world countries like Nigeria, the concept of motivation have to be  tweaked, the workforce, which is largely made up of poor people, are motivated  mostly by monetary rewards. This is highly because they are desperately in need  of that money. The “extra” money or bonuses are used up for everyday  necessity. It may be very difficult for them to get by just with their normal pay. So

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
