What makes you Tick at work?

What Makes You Tick?!

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, and you do it because you have an intrinsic desire and drive to do it, you are 30% more productive and 3 times more successful. 

But what exactly is it, that makes you Tick at work? What is it that you -often subconsciously- long for and pursue deep down inside? What motivates you from within (intrinsically) to do something and makes you feel fulfilled when you achieve it? And, more importantly, what can you do to structurally increase the fulfilment and success you experience at work?

Scarfforce provides direct and profound insight into the motivational drivers and values that make you Tick and motivate you intrinsically at work. A valuable insight that not only enables you to improve your self-knowledge and your self-awareness about what you need most in your work and from others to feel true fulfilment and to thrive, but also enables you to improve the current situation at work or to find a new job where work no longer feels like work, because you have an inner desire to do it. With success as a logical result.

Unravel the key to your inner drive

How it works

Our motivational drivers include the fundamental goals we pursue. Often subconsciously, they have a major influence on the emotions and happiness we experience in the workplace. They determine how a situation makes us feel, if it attracts you (engage) or pushes you away (disengage), how we collaborate with our colleagues, and whether or not we experience a sense of true fulfilment in our work. They even determine how we react to all of this. Ultimately, they are key to how successful we are at work.

Use the insights to master your intrinsic motivation and fulfilment

What is in it for you?

By improving your self-knowledge on what makes you tick at work, you improve your ability to actively manage your career and to make the right decisions, control your emotions, manage your intrinsic work motivation, improve your collaboration with colleagues, boost your productivity, and, ultimately, to improve your performance and to thrive at work.

Our research approach

Intuitive Inquiry

The 2 or 3 motivational drivers that live strongest within us not only determine how we perceive the world and the situation around us. They also create our most deeply embedded beliefs about what feels “good” and “bad” to us. And create our own set of rules based on which we decide to do or not do something. Therefore, by assessing our values -and what we value most- we can retrieve which fundamental goals we pursue, and your strongest motivational drivers.

During the scan -which can be executed both online by means of the Online Drive Scan as well as offline with help of the value cards– your motivational drivers are being assessed by evaluating what you value most (and least) at work.



Calibrated images and a time constraint prevent you from thinking rationally about the answers (want to) give and minimizes the probability you deliberately or unintentionally influence the scan results.


Both the 30 values and the images that are used to measure which values you find most important in your work, have been tested and validated extensively based on empirical research among over 4,500 persons in multiple countries. Leading to a validity and reliability of the scan of more than 95%. 

Fun to do!

Visuals, gamification techniques and the short completion time make the scan fun to do.
