ENERGY FORMULA

These are the 5 core Elements that make up this individual’s Personal Energy Formula. The core Elements provide insight into one’s personality, attributes, strengths and motivations. They work together to form the unique chemistry of who this person is. 

They can be a guide for one’s journey through life. They will help you understand the paths this person is likely to be successful in, the things they’ll be naturally motivated to do and find fulfillment from. The synthesis of these Elements and how they manifest make this individual uniquely who they are.

what is an energy formula?

This individual’s Personal Energy Formula is a magical and unique chemistry of 5 Elements. 

These Elements work together and interact with each other in unique and magical ways. Their interaction are what create the talents, traits, attributes, strengths, preferences, desires, and behavioral tendencies that make them who they are. 

This individual’s formula is unique. It represents a certain set of superpowers. Things that they are (or have the specific potential to be) incredibly good at. 

Understanding this individual’s formula, the Elements within it, and what they mean to them and their life is incredibly important. When they focus on their strengths, they will be happier, do better, and find more fulfillment from their life. 

The Elements in this individual’s profile represent not only their current strengths, but also their potential.

why energy is so important

An individual’s Energy Profile helps you identify not just their strengths, attributes and personality, but also what most motivates them… where they get their energy.

The ability to find and sustain energy is critical to achievement. Energy describes the desire, emotion, enthusiasm and passion we feel for the things we do. And when it comes to performance and achievement, energy is what matters most, especially in long-term pursuits.

Why you should measure

engagement energy

The word “engagement” describes the energy this individual has for the things they do and the journeys they’re on. Over time, that energy will ebb and flow. Sometimes they’ll feel highly engaged, and other times, they’ll feel disengaged.

Disengagement can be small, like lacking motivation to do something specific. It can also happen at a larger level, like becoming disengaged from a long-term goal or objective.

It can even happen on a macro level, like becoming disengaged from work, in a relationship, or with life itself.

Prolonged disengagement can be catastrophic to the outcomes and objectives of this individual’s life that really matter.

This individual’s ability to sustain energy in the things that matter most is critical to long-term success. We sometimes call it grit, perseverance, tenacity or “stick-to-it-iveness”! 

But because disengagement happens slowly, by degrees and over time, they tend to not notice it until it’s too late or until a lot of damage has been done.

This individual’s Energy Profile will tell you what Elements most motivate them. They can then take the Engagement Assessment to know how engaged they are, based on those Elements. They can know what’s driving their engagement, what’s creating disengagement, and most importantly, what they can do about it!

what are the 16 Elements

Over the last 20 years, Life Engineering has been on a mission to understand what drives human achievement, and how to help people identify, access and achieve their full potential. 

Our research has indicated there are three main categories that impact achievement. These include:

  • Time – How much time someone gives, how they use that time, and how productive they are with that time
  • Talent – What applicable skills that person has or develops that they can apply
  • Energy – The motivation, drive, commitment, enthusiasm and level of engagement that person feels for what they’re doing

We particularly wanted to dive deep into the category of Energy and motivation, because what we found is that when someone has more Energy for something, they tend to give it more time, and be better with the time they spend on it. They also tend to develop more Talent for that thing, and have a natural propensity to develop that talent.

We found that when it comes to achievement, between Time, Talent and Energy… Energy matters most. This is especially true for an objective or initiative that happens over a longer period of time. We call these Journeys.

Because of the importance of Energy on achievement, we did extensive research to identify what motivates people, where they get their drive. We wanted to understand what gets them started and what keeps them engaged and moving forward. This could be on a macro scale, like in life; on a large scale, like over a career, or in a relationship or project; or on a micro scale, like over the span of a day.

Through our research, we identified 16 Elements that, when present or active, are what causes someone to be emotionally engaged, motivated, and driven to move forward.

Our research also showed that some Elements are more motivating to us than others… we call these Core Motivators. As we dove into this, we found that the reason these Elements are “Core Motivators” is because they are fundamental aspects of our identity. It’s core to who we are.

From this research, the Energy Profile and Engagement Assessment were born.

The Energy Profile identifies the specific Elements that form the chemistry of one’s identity, and the Engagement Assessment allows an individual to measure the degree to which those Elements are active across their core journeys in life.

The level of impact this element has on your overall formula

ELEMENT WEIGHT

The Personal Energy Formula is a unique chemistry of Elements that work together and interact with each other in important ways to make this individual who they are. 

Their top 5 Elements are those that most motivate them and give rise to their strengths and characteristics. The top 5 Elements are listed in the order in which they rank, with the highest-ranking Element first.

The Element Weight is an indication of the level of impact that particular Element has on this individual’s overall identity profile. 

  • Tier 1 (score of 86-100) – Maximum Impact
  • Tier 2 (score of 71-85) – High Impact
  • Tier 3 (score of 46-70) – Medium Impact
  • Tier 4 (score of 21 – 45) – Low Impact
  • Tier 5 (score of 0-20) – Minimal Impact

As you study this individual’s formula, take time to consider the Element Weights of each Element, and what that means.

For instance, if their first three Elements are Tier 1 Motivators, and their last two Elements are Tier 3 Motivators, then the majority of their identity attributes will be comprised of those first three Elements, with the latter two adding color and focus to those Elements. In this case, you would want to really concentrate on understanding this individual’s first three motivators, as they have a disproportionate impact on who they are.

On the other hand, if all 5 Elements in this individual’s formula are Tier 1 Motivators, and the gap between them is small, then that gap is likely within the margin of error of the assessment. In that case it really doesn’t matter what order they’re in, because they all have nearly an equivalent impact on this individual’s identity attributes.

As you browse all of the sections in this individual’s profile, you’ll see the Element Weight across all 16 Elements. That can be helpful as you work to understand the level of impact each Element has, or how much it contributes to their total profile.

Potential Energy

Potential Energy describes an individual’s intrinsic level of self-motivation. It represents their inherent capacity and propensity to engage and the energy they have when they do. High Potential Energy indicates a strong inherent drive, while low Potential Energy may suggest a reliance on external factors for motivation. Understanding and effectively managing one’s Potential Energy can enhance well-being, performance, and overall life satisfaction. 

Click the “Learn More” button for more info.

Potential Energy

Potential Energy is a comprehensive measure that captures an individual’s intrinsic level of self-motivation. It describes the total energy available that can be converted into Engagement Energy (the energy of action).

This Potential Energy (or capacity for intrinsic motivation, as proposed in Self-Determination Theory) is driven by an internal sense of interest or enjoyment rather than relying on external pressures or rewards.

high potential energy

A high Potential Energy score suggests a strong inclination towards self-motivation. Individuals with high Potential Energy are likely to be naturally driven to engage in activities due to a sense of enjoyment and personal importance. They will exhibit a high level of enthusiasm for these activities. 

These individuals are likely to be naturally curious, proactive, persistent, and resilient in the face of challenges, and they often derive a high level of satisfaction and fulfillment from their activities.

low potential energy

On the other hand, a low Potential Energy score might suggest that an individual is less intrinsically motivated, or for one reason or another, at this point in time, just has less energy to give. This doesn’t mean they have no motivation, but rather rely more on external factors for motivation and energy. These could include things like compensation, rewards or recognition, but likely have less innate passion for the activities they engage in. 

These individuals might find it more challenging to initiate or persist in activities, especially when faced with obstacles or setbacks, or when extrinsic motivators are absent or don’t measure up to expectations.

changing potential energy

Unlike the Personal Energy Profile, which defines the Elements that most comprise one’s core personality, and tend to change very little (if ever), the Potential Energy score can change greatly over time. 

There are simply times in life when we have more energy and times when we have less energy. These variations in Potential Energy, or the energy we have available to engage, can cause us to experience cycles of engagement (or disengagement) in life.

Often the reasons for these fluctuations are circumstantial. But we have control over our Potential Energy. We have the ability to dramatically improve and impact how much Energy we have to apply to the contexts of life that matter most (one’s Critical Contexts). To learn more about this, visit the Potential Energy principle in the Achievement Academy.

understanding potential energy

Understanding this individual’s level of Potential Energy is crucial as it can provide valuable insights into their personal energy landscape. 

It can guide you in identifying activities that this individual may be naturally drawn to and in which they are likely to persist and succeed. It can also help you understand their potential challenges and areas for growth.

Whether this individual has high or low Potential Energy, it’s not about good or bad, but about understanding their unique motivational needs and preferences and how they shape their life.

By understanding and effectively managing Potential Energy, this individual can enhance their well-being, performance, and overall life satisfaction.

Potential Energy is a sophisticated and complex concept and there’s much more to really understand about it.

confidence & Self-Efficacy

This describes how confident one is in their skills and abilities, and how much they believe that they can positive impact their life. It shows up in how they approach life and its journeys, and in how they look to the future.

It’s important to note that confidence is not a representation of actual skills or abilities, but rather a measure of their perception of these. 

Click the “Learn More” button for more info.

CONFIDENCE & SELF-EFFICACY

Confidence and Self-Efficacy represent one’s belief in their abilities and their capacity to use those abilities to achieve desired outcomes in life. There are 3 main factors at work here, Perceived Competence, Confidence, and Self-Efficacy.

  • Perceived Competence: This refers to an individual’s belief about their ability or skill in a specific area. It’s about how competent or capable they perceive themselves to be. Perceived competence is domain-specific and is often influenced by past experiences and feedback from others. For example, if an individual has been successful in a task in the past, they may perceive themselves as competent in that task.

  • Confidence: Confidence is a broader term that refers to a general belief in one’s abilities. It’s a feeling of self-assuredness that comes from an appreciation of our own abilities or qualities. Confidence can be domain-specific (e.g., I am confident in my ability to cook a good meal) or more general (e.g., I am a confident person). Confidence is often seen as a personality trait that can influence behavior across a variety of situations.

  • Self-Efficacy: Self-efficacy, a concept introduced by psychologist Albert Bandura, is more specific than confidence. It refers to an individual’s belief in their capacity to execute behaviors necessary to produce specific performance attainments. It’s not just about knowing what to do, but also believing that you can do it in a particular context. Self-efficacy is context-specific and can vary depending on the situation. For example, a person might have high self-efficacy in cooking but low self-efficacy in public speaking.

In summary, while all three terms relate to an individual’s belief in their abilities, they differ in their specificity and context. Perceived competence is about one’s skills in a specific domain, confidence is a more general belief in one’s abilities, and self-efficacy is about one’s belief in their ability to succeed in specific situations or tasks.

high confidence and self-efficacy

When one scores high in Confidence and Self-Efficacy, it means they generally feel capable and believe in their ability to perform tasks, overcome challenges, and achieve their goals in various aspects of life. They trust in their skills and are likely to take on challenges, persist in the face of obstacles, and bounce back from setbacks. This belief in their abilities can fuel their motivation, enhance their performance, and lead to greater satisfaction and well-being.

low Confidence & self-efficacy

On the other hand, if one scores lower in Confidence and Self-Efficacy, it doesn’t mean they lack abilities or skills. Instead, it may indicate that they’re less certain about their capacity to use those skills to achieve desired outcomes. They might be more hesitant to take on challenges or may feel more discouraged by setbacks. However, remember that confidence and self-efficacy can be developed. By setting achievable goals, seeking out experiences that build their skills, and cultivating a growth mindset, they can enhance their confidence and self-efficacy over time. 

understanding confidence and self-eficacy

Understanding this individual’s Confidence and Self-Efficacy score in their PEP can provide valuable insights into their motivations, behaviors, and potential areas for growth. It can help you identify where they may feel most capable and where they might want to focus on building their confidence and belief in their abilities. This understanding can empower you to help them align with their strengths, challenge areas where they want to grow, and ultimately lead a more fulfilling and successful life.

CONFIDENCE

Connectedness

The Connectedness Score describes one’s natural tendency to reach out, form connections, and include other people in their journey. 

It’s an indication of the fulfillment and joy they get from being connected to and associating with others. It describes their level of need for social connection and creating relationships.

Click the “Learn More” button for more info.

Connectedness

Connectedness reflects the degree to which one involves others in various aspects of their life and how much they value social interactions and relationships. Its about more than just the number of social connections they have; its about the quality of those connections and the extent to which they integrate social aspects into their life. 

A high score in connectedness suggests that this individual actively seeks to involve others in their life, whether its sharing perspectives, involving others in their plans, seeking mentorship, or finding renewal in doing things with others. It indicates that they value social interactions and relationships and see them as an integral part of their life journey.

On the other hand, a lower score in connectedness might suggest that this individual prefers to navigate life more independently, or that they may find it more challenging to involve others in their life. This doesnt necessarily mean they lack social skills or relationships, but rather that they might prefer a degree of solitude or independence in their activities and decisions.

Understanding Connectedness and Relatedness

Connectedness is closely associated with the concept of relatedness, a fundamental psychological need as identified in Self-Determination Theory. Relatedness refers to the need to form meaningful and satisfying relationships with others, to feel a sense of belonging and emotional connection.

A high score in connectedness suggests a strong sense of relatedness.

It indicates that this individual not only seeks social interactions, but they also strive for deeper, more meaningful connections. They value the emotional bonds they form with others and derive a sense of belonging and security from these relationships. They actively involve others in various aspects of their life, such as sharing perspectives, involving others in their plans, seeking mentorship, and finding renewal in doing things with others.

A lower score in connectedness, while suggesting a preference for more independence, does not necessarily mean a lack of relatedness.

This individual may still have meaningful relationships and a sense of belonging, but they might prefer to navigate certain aspects of life more independently. It could also indicate areas where they might want to focus on enhancing their sense of relatedness, such as by deepening existing relationships or building new ones.

Understanding this individual’s level of connectedness and relatedness can provide valuable insights into their social behavior and preferences. It can guide them in nurturing their relationships, improving their social skills, and finding the right balance between independence and social engagement. Whether they score high or low in connectedness, remember that its not about good or bad, but about understanding their unique social needs and preferences and how they shape their life.

This aspect of connectedness and relatedness is vital to feeling like were thriving in life and finding purpose, meaning, and fulfillment. You can explore this concept more fully by visiting the Connectedness principle in the Principle Inventory of our Achievement Academy.

CONNECTEDNESS

autonomy

The Autonomy Score is a measure of one’s perceived control, influence, and ability across various aspects of their life. It reflects the degree to which they feel they can make independent decisions, influence their outcomes, and shape their own path. 

Autonomy is about having the freedom to act according to their values, interests, and beliefs, and feeling that their behavior is self-endorsed and congruent with their personal values and beliefs.

Autonomy

Autonomy is about having the freedom to make choices that are in alignment with one’s identity (their most authentic self). 

High Autonomy

High levels of autonomy are associated with feeling a strong sense of personal freedom and self-determination across various life domains.

Individuals with high autonomy believe they have a significant influence over their surroundings, relationships, personal growth, and the achievement of their goals.

They feel secure in their identity, confident in their ability to find resources and guidance, and believe in their capacity to make a difference.

High autonomy is also associated with a strong sense of personal efficacy, control, and feeling like they have the ability to shape their life according to their values and interests.

Low Autonomy

Low autonomy often leads to a feeling of being constrained or controlled.

Individuals with low autonomy may feel that their actions and decisions are heavily influenced by external factors or pressures, rather than being a true reflection of their personal values and interests.

They may feel less confident in their ability to influence their surroundings, relationships, and personal growth, and may struggle with goal achievement. Low autonomy can lead to feelings of helplessness, lack of control, and a disconnect from one’s authentic self.

Autonomy Preservation

People who have a high level of autonomy tend to have a high desire to maintain that autonomy.

The preservation of autonomy is critical to them. In most instances, they esteem it to be even more valuable than those who have no autonomy, but desire it (this is the principle of Loss Aversion).

Because of this, if someone has a high degree of autonomy and is put within a situation or environment or context where they have less autonomy, they will tend to quickly become dissatisfied.

This is a common Departure Trigger.

When this happens, they may first seek to reclaim their autonomy, but if it becomes clear that this is unlikely, dissatisfaction will become disengagement, and can rapidly fuel their acceleration through the stages of disengagement.

Increasing Autonomy

It is important to seek autonomy, and to increase the autonomy we feel across life’s domains, or critical contexts.

passion

The Passion score describes the overall breadth of passion one feels, or how passionate they are in their life.

It’s an indication of the emotional enthusiasm they naturally carry with them and can indicate their level of curiosity and energy for trying new things. Raw passion is a huge source of natural energy that drives engagement in life.

Their top 5 Elements are those that most motivate them and give rise to their strengths and characteristics. The top 5 Elements are listed in the order in which they rank, with the highest-ranking Element first.

The Element Weight is an indication of the level of impact that particular Element has on this individual’s overall identity profile. 

  • Tier 1 (score of 86-100) – Maximum Impact
  • Tier 2 (score of 71-85) – High Impact
  • Tier 3 (score of 46-70) – Medium Impact
  • Tier 4 (score of 21 – 45) – Low Impact
  • Tier 5 (score of 0-20) – Minimal Impact

As you study this individual’s formula, take time to consider the Element Weights of each Element, and what that means.

For instance, if their first three Elements are Tier 1 Motivators, and their last two Elements are Tier 3 Motivators, then the majority of their identity attributes will be comprised of those first three Elements, with the latter two adding color and focus to those Elements. In this case, you would want to really concentrate on understanding this individual’s first three motivators, as they have a disproportionate impact on who they are.

On the other hand, if all 5 Elements in this individual’s formula are Tier 1 Motivators, and the gap between them is small, then that gap is likely within the margin of error of the assessment. In that case it really doesn’t matter what order they’re in, because they all have nearly an equivalent impact on this individual’s identity attributes.

Motivation Potential

THE ENERGY ACTIVATION SPECTRUM

UNDERSTANDING THE INTERPLAY OF MOTIVATION POTENTIAL AND ACTIVATION ENERGY

In Chemistry, Activation Energy is the minimum energy threshold that must be reached for a chemical reaction to occur. In life, the energy of motivation also has an Activation Energy Threshold. It’s the amount of investment we have to make for an Element to release its energy.

The Energy Activation Spectrum is composed of two separate but interrelated aspects.

  • Motivation Potential – This describes the total energy this individual is likely to get out of an Element, or how motivating it is to them.
  • Activation Energy – This describes how difficult it is to get that Element to produce Energy or motivation.

These two interact in opposite ways.
