DISC, StrengthsFinder, and many more archetype tests are all based on the same foundation – Aristotle’s Nichomachean Ethics (NE).
Archetype tests generally tell you why you do what you do – something that Aristotle was intrigued by. In NE, he wrote about the seven desires which drive decisions. Each desire motivates us (trigger), strengthens us (advantage), and has an opposing weakness.
Aristotle also documented that that only two or three of these desires become prevalent over time and make up your Decision Making Archetype, a combination of Motivation and Strengths.
Below are the Motivator Archetypes (your triggers). Simply identify the top 2 or 3 that resonate with you most.
