The Values-based Indicator of Motivation (VbIM) is based on a fresh model of values assessed in a new way.
It maps traditional values like reward, influence and altruism and matches these with more contemporary concerns relating to relationships, as well as more abstract concepts. It provides both breadth and depth and gives insight into the balance between individual and group/societal values, and those which are sources of individual satisfaction or meaning. In this way the questionnaire is centred on four areas and comprises 24 scales:
VbIM uses the latest technology to provide more sophisticated assessment by combining both normative and ipsative approaches within the same questionnaire. This lets people look at the relative strength of their own values, and the priority they give to each, as well as providing a means of benchmarking against the pattern of values that prevail in the general population.
