This applies to intellectual, philosophical, academic, scholastic, executive, or technical activities.

High motivation indicates that this person has excellent talent for a wide range of mental activities: philosophical, cultural, scientific, literary, managerial, and/or computational. Being capable in those activities, this person's mind is adept with abstract ideas, theory, concepts, inquiry, exploration, analysis, logic, systems, and procedures. Factors in this aptitude section, plus the data and reasoning sections show the degree of motivation and talent this person has for each of those mental activities. High rating for this trait indicates an intellectual orientation which is functional in, or has potential for academic, scientific, research, literary, executive, or consulting activities.
Moderate motivation indicates that this person has mental talent for intellectual and/or analytical work. Review of the Worker Trait will identify this person's potential for philosophical, cultural, scientific, managerial, and/or computational activities. Motivation for this factor means that interest in all areas listed probably does not mean equal motivation or talent for all. So scanning of related Worker Traits is necessary to identify the mix of traits involved in this analytical/intellectual orientation.
Intellectual and/or analytical activities aren't particularly important for this person. Because this factor measures talent in 5 major areas plus 3 lesser areas, low motivation indicates that this person may have high ratings in one or more of those areas, while this average rating for the entire collection of them is low. Therefore, it is important to review all Worker Traits related to mental activity to determine which activities are motivated for this person.
