**6 Research: Innovative, Experimental Use of Math:** Regardless of the kind or level of math being used, this factor identifies minds capable of creating new mathematical ideas, hypothesis, theories, applications, formulas. It is inventive, creative, innovative, or experimental math.

*
Exploratory, innovative, experimental use of math required to work with a wide variety of theoretical mathematical concepts; make original application of those concepts; apply knowledge of advanced mathematical techniques to new areas of challenge or research.
*

High motivation indicates that this person can work with a wide variety of theoretical math concepts; make original application of those concepts; apply knowledge of advanced mathematical or statistical techniques to new areas of challenge, interest or opportunity. This mind is conceptual, analytical, curious, and exploratory. This represents an appropriate mind for research and theoretical logic. | |

Moderate motivation indicates that this person has math capability extending toward theory, abstract concepts, experimental applications, etc. Because motivation for this theoretical activity is moderate, it is not likely that it would be satisfying as a primary vocation, or have too heavy emphasis. However, it remains a valuable asset which extends capability beyond usual activities. | |

Theoretical, abstract math is not of much interest to this person—and perhaps math itself isn't of much interest. Review of all factors in this section will identify if and where low motivation indicates that this person might have math interest and talent applicable to occupational activities. |
