Episode 20: Left Brain vs Right Brain Core Drives (Intrinsic vs Extrinsic Motivation)
Finally a new episode with the Beginner’s Guide to Gamification! In this episode, I talk about the differences between Left Brain and Right Brain Core Drives, which coincide with Intrinsic vs Extrinsic motivation that we often hear a lot about in other pieces of work. I also talk about some strategies on how to make an experience more intrinsic.
In this lesson, I take the viewer to my Hawaii Honey-Moon (which is like the only time I get to work on this), Norway, California, India, Kingdom of Bahrain, and Shenzhen China.

Wordle fans looking for a more difficult challenge will enjoy the phrazle game, which is a word puzzle with a higher difficulty level.
Went to Hawaii for my 6-monthiversary. Great fun. My wife was a sport and flew in a glider with me. I think she white-knuckled it the whole time. She did it all for me. God lover her. 🙂 Lots of good memories during that trip.
Tks for this. Good to watch the video version to reinforce the blog entries! 🙂
Very interesting, but what about Meaning & Calling and Avoidance & Loss? Are they kinda neutral or more Extrinsic/Intrinsic?
If i have to guess, I would say they are both Intrinsic although Meaning is naturally Human while Avoidance is artificial and induced in Human thinking.
You know Yu-kai! Same question! when are more videos coming out? 😉
Eh…coming out soon. I’m editing the next 4 batches, but the footage is still there.
Just busy pushing out my book and client work 🙁
