Intrinsic (motivation)

There are basically two types of motivation. One is intrinsic motivation, or in other words intrinsic motivation, and the other is extrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivation involves performing a behavior because it is personally rewarding; basically doing an activity for its own sake rather than some external desire for reward. Basically, the behavior itself is its own reward.

An important component of self-motivation is emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence is a measure of one's ability to recognize and manage one's own emotions and those of other people.
