Motives are Power, Productivity/Logic, resist things that don't interest them, want to look good to others (knowledge, respect). They don't say "in my opinion" or "I think" and they seem antagonistic to others. They can be control freaks--like to lead.
Motives are Doing Good, Altruism, Selflessness. They crave intimacy and nurturing. They are loyal and perfectionists/obsessive. They want to be listened to and will reveal inadequacies openly so they can be known and understood. They are okay being vulnerable. They have a strong moral conscience/integrity. CONS: nurturing can be mistaken for distrust (ie. spying on employees), they are extremely self-disciplined and always seek purpose in life. They give more, but forgive least, carry resentment and have strings attached. They are filled with worry, anxiety, self doubt, and are guilt-ridden. They care a lot about manners/propriety and don't like wasted time (will multitask!). They envy or resent others who don't work as hard and can get in a moody and emotional rut. They are can be pious or self-righteous and insecure.
Keep the peace and want to feel good (vs. being good). They are kind, keep a low profile, just want to be left alone (vs. control others). They are passive--you have to ask for their opinions. They are independent, will do things in their own way on their own time. They may grow resentful or "blow up" if forced otherwise. They are open to other people's suggestions.
Value play, need praises/to be valued. They like physical intimacy, are popular, and are driven by action/adventure.
