Interpersonal motivational systems are «innate rules systems» that guide social behavior and the emotional experience of each individual, with respect to achieve the fundamental goals of our species. Assuming that everyone can activate some motivational systems more than others, this paper suggests a self-report questionnaire for the identification of individual motivational profiles. A first version of the questionnaire was elaborated and submitted to 600 subjects not affected by a serious psychopathology diagnosis. Statistical analyzes revealed 6 factors of 8 well defined - Ranking-Submission RAS, Affiliation AF, Sexual SEX, Ranking-Dominance RAD, Caregiving AC, Social Game GIO. Interesting differences by gender and age concerning the relevance of motivational system emerged. The questionnaire is a promising tool in order to obtain an individual motivational profile. The next goal of the authors of this work will be to modify the item of the two dimensions not yet well defined - Attachment AT and Peer Cooperation PA - in order to develop a final version of the questionnaire usable in clinical and research applications.
Keywords: Interpersonal motivational systems, individual motivational profile, selfreport questionnaire, attachment-caregiving, peer cooperation system, multi-motivational interpersonal theory.
