Section 7 – What are MOTIVATORS

In understanding the driving forces behind the behaviors and decisions of the four NEXUS types, we focus on what we call”CORE MOTIVATORS.” These motivators essentially act as the “WHY” behind each type’s thinking, decision-making, and actions. While individuals across different types might engage in the same activities, the underlying reasons or motivations for these actions can vary significantly.

Core Motivators for Each NEXUS Type:

  • DRIVERS: Motivated by PROGRESS

      • Progress: DRIVERS are propelled by the need to see tangible advancements and results. They experience anxiety when there is a lack of action or forward movement. DRIVERS are decisive and proactive, often feeling compelled to take the initiative in order to make a difference and generate positive outcomes through measurable progress.
      • Determination: For DRIVERS, the next steps are clear, and they will pursue them regardless of external circumstances. Doubts expressed by others do not deter them but rather can intensify their resolve. Their motto could well be, “I don’t know how it will happen, but I will make sure it does!”
  • INFLUENCERS: Motivated by RELATIONAL UNITY

      • Relational Unity: INFLUENCERS thrive on creating and maintaining harmonious relationships. They are motivated by the desire to connect people, fostering an environment where everyone feels aligned and valued. They experience discomfort when relationships are strained or when there is discord within a group.
      • Connecting: This involves not just verbal exchanges but also creating emotional bonds. INFLUENCERS are adept at finding common ground with others and may use enthusiastic expressions to enhance perceived connections. Their genuine care for the well-being of others is palpable and central to their interactions.
  • SOLUTIONARIES: Motivated by SOLUTIONS

      • Solutions: SOLUTIONARIES are focused on problem-solving and creating effective solutions. They engage deeply with challenges, often through observation and contemplation, and find great satisfaction in devising innovative and practical solutions.
      • Understanding: This involves a deep comprehension of how things work and the implications of various decisions. SOLUTIONARIES possess a keen insight into the mechanics of situations and an ability to anticipate and mitigate potential issues through well-thought-out solutions.
  • STABILIZERS: Motivated by BALANCE

    • Balance: STABILIZERS seek to ensure that everything is fair, equitable, and stable. They prefer environments and decisions that uphold safety and reasonableness, and they rely heavily on detailed information to achieve this balance.
    • Information: STABILIZERS value comprehensive and accurate information, which helps them feel prepared and secure. They are particularly attentive to details, even those that might seem trivial to others, because they believe in the importance of being well-equipped for any situation.

Practical Implications:

Understanding these motivators can illuminate why individuals behave differently in similar situations. For instance, consider two people researching which insurance to buy:

  • A DRIVER might delve into this task to prevent any delay or hindrance to their progress, as they are motivated by the desire to move forward without disruptions.
  • A STABILIZER, on the other hand, might undertake the same research with the aim of ensuring that everything is balanced and secure, motivated by the need for safety and thorough preparedness.

These core motivators do not just influence personal decisions but also affect how each type interacts in professional and social settings. Recognizing and appreciating these motivators helps in fostering better understanding and cooperation among individuals with different NEXUS types.

 

Section 8 – What’s Really Happening?

 

Each NEXUS motivator is supported by what we call a NEXUS Ethic, which acts similarly to a dimmer switch for lighting in a room. When the dimmer switch is open, your motivator can shine brightly, allowing you to express yourself fully and confidently in your interactions with your team, family, and the broader society. However, if the dimmer is turned down, the strength of your motivator diminishes. This reduction may cause anxiety, leading you to overemphasize your motivator in an effort to maintain its influence.

 

The relationship between your NEXUS Ethic and your motivator is crucial. As you drift away from your ethic, you edge closer to encountering your primary fear, which can trigger a shift from a positive to a negative conflict strategy. This shift typically manifests when you face significant stress or fear, prompting a reaction that may not align with your usual behavior.

 

In moments where you are close to confronting your primary fear, you have the potential to consciously or subconsciously choose an alternate NEXUS Motivator Strategy. If you make this choice before fully engaging your primary fear, you can adopt the positive strategies associated with the new motivator. However, if you switch to an alternate motivator strategy after crossing into fear, you may find yourself displaying the negative aspects of this secondary strategy—essentially revealing a less favorable, but temporarily effective, ‘dark side.’

 

Understanding these dynamics helps clarify the underlying mechanisms of your behavior, providing you with tools to manage your responses and maintain alignment with your core motivations and ethics, even under pressure.

 

Section 9 – Glossary

The NEXUS Profile

The ‘NEXUS Profile’ is an assessment that reveals your unique and original MOTIVATIONAL DESIGN. It quantifies the special blend of MOTIVATIONAL DRIVERS that create the person you are. 

 

We call the ‘blend’ of all your MOTIVATIONAL DRIVERS your ORIGINAL DESIGN Blend. This blend is made from four ‘types’. Everyone has some of each of the four types. Your profile is labeled with your first (or highest-numbered) two ‘types’.  Your ‘score’ is the numerical assignment of all four types.

 

For example, if you are a 40 DRIVER, 37 INFLUENCER, 19 SOLUTIONARY, 8 STABILIZER, your NEXUS Profile would be known as a DRIVER/INFLUENCER (your two highest-numbered ‘types’). Even though someone with that score would often be referred to as a DRIVER / INFLUENCER (or simply DRIVER),  you’re still a perfect blend of all four ‘types’. 

NEXUS ‘Type’

When you complete The NEXUS Profile, the assessment analyzes your answers. It produces a unique ‘SCORE’ for each of the four ‘TYPES’. These ‘TYPES’ are

  • DRIVER
  • INFLUENCER
  • SOLUTIONARY
  • STABILIZER

Every person is a unique ‘blend’ of all four ‘types’. Most people have a dominant ‘type’. Occasionally a person can have a tie (or the same numerical score) in 2-3 ‘types’. While it is rare, there could be a tie in all four ‘types’.  This does happen, and is even expected to happen.

MOTIVATORS or Behavioral (What I Want)

There are four MOTIVATORS: 

  • PROGRESS
  • RELATIONAL UNITY
  • SOLUTIONS
  • BALANCE

You can think of each of these as the gas for your car; like Diesel vs. Gasoline. What is the ‘gas’ that makes YOUR car go? What is the motivation behind why you do what you do? We often describe these ‘MOTIVATORS’ as energy, fuel, or ‘drivers’. 

Ethic (Approach to Achieve)

There are four ETHICS:

  • DETERMINATION
  • CONNECTION
  • UNDERSTANDING
  • INFORMATION

Think of the ‘ETHIC’ as the reason behind the motivator. For a SOLUTIONARY, the ETHIC is ‘UNDERSTANDING’; it’s the ‘why’. 

 

A SOLUTIONARY uses the ‘fuel’ of ‘UNDERSTANDING’ to deliver SOLUTIONS to the world. We describe this as ‘catalyzed by’ So, a SOLUTIONARY is catalyzed by ‘UNDERSTANDING’.

TYPE / MOTIVATOR / ETHIC Breakdown  (see chart below)

 

TYPE >> MOTIVATOR >> ETHIC
DRIVER >> PROGRESS >> DETERMINATION
INFLUENCER >> RELATIONAL UNITY >> CONNECTION
SOLUTIONARY >> SOLUTIONS >> UNDERSTANDING
STABILIZER >> BALANCE >> INFORMATION

ORIGINAL Design

Every person is made up of MOTIVATORS. These MOTIVATORS can be described as the energy, fuel, or reasons that compel us to behave in various situations. They are ‘behind’ or ‘underneath’ our behavior, like the ‘gas’ for our car. The MOTIVATORS compel the behavior and decision-making and, even more importantly, the perspective we have regarding the world around us. 

 

These MOTIVATORS are not a new-age-kind-of-woo-woo-energy but an accurate descriptor of the innate ‘push’ behind why we take specific actions and don’t take others. We call it a ‘DESIGN’ because God designed us this way. We call it ORIGINAL because we believe God made us with specific MOTIVATORS on purpose from the beginning before birth, according to His unique plan for our life. 

NEXUS Design Blend

Your ‘NEXUS Design Blend’ is the ‘blend’ of energies that make up who you are. It was given to you on purpose by God before birth. It doesn’t change over time. How you respond to the world DOES change. There isn’t a ‘better’ or ‘lacking’ blend. Each one of us was made perfectly to God’s design, according to His purpose, and with a purpose

 

Design Approach

Think of your ‘Design Approach’ as the special recipe in which God made you to be able to approach and tackle the things life brings to you. It’s the way you solve problems, but it’s also the way you ‘view’ the world around you. It’s the blend that makes you think the way you think, do things the way you do, and say what you say. It’s your ‘approach’ to conflict resolution, team building, communication, ideation, and thinking. Some people approach situations from a “let’s get along”’ mentality (they are called INFLUENCERS). Some people approach projects with a “we shouldn’t start until we have all the information” position (they are called STABILIZERS). EACH ‘Design Approach’ looks at and deals with life, and the obstacles it presents, differently.

Difference (Sometimes referred to as ‘Magnitude of Difference’)

This is the point difference between ‘TYPE’ SCORES. For example, if your NEXUS Profile is 40 DRIVER and 37 INFLUENCER, there would be a three-point ‘difference’ between DRIVER and INFLUENCER. 

Order of Magnitude

For every 10 points of difference there is one  ‘Order of Magnitude’ difference; or 10 times greater.

So a 40 DRIVER and a 30 INFLUENCER is 1 ‘Order of Magnitude’. This person is 10 times more DRIVER than INFLUENCER. This is a HUGE difference. So a 40 DRIVER and a 20 INFLUENCER are 100 times different. If someone has a 30-point difference, they are 1000 times more of a DRIVER than an INFLUENCER. 

You can also think of this as ‘ease of use’ or ‘naturally inclined to’. They are 100 times more ‘naturally inclined’ to act from DRIVER than INFLUENCER if they have a 40 DRIVER and a 20 INFLUENCER.

Catalytic Faith/Dimmer Switch

CATALYTIC  FAITH describes the ‘perceived effectiveness’ of your current DESIGN APPROACH. Think of this like a dimmer switch connected to “how well your approach is working”.

 

Example: SOLUTIONARY; they want to bring solutions to the world (MOTIVATOR). They do this through UNDERSTANDING (ETHIC). If the perceived effectiveness of their understanding is not producing solutions, or they are found to have inaccurate or incomplete understanding, the ‘FAITH’ in their contribution begins to diminish. Doubt, fear, and anxiety all begin to take root inside them. We describe this as a light-in-the-room-getting-darker the longer that ‘things aren’t working’ moment.

 

Misaligned/Misalignment 

Everyone, no matter how good or bad, easy or difficult their life is, will experience a misalignment from their ORIGINAL DESIGN or ‘true nature’. When you are born, you function just the way God intended. At that moment, you are perfectly aligned with God’s original design. 

 

Then, as life happens, you ‘learn’ how to deal with the world around you and some misalignment occurs. Parents inevitably cause misalignment, as well as the circumstances you face daily throughout your life. This is a reality. However, God’s original design for you was not an accident. Learning how to reprogram your brain ‘back’ to God’s original design is an essential step in being the very best version of yourself. 

Negative/Positive Conflict Strategy

Each NEXUS ‘type’ approaches decision-making, conversations, and conflict differently. These differences are God-designed and good! However, if purposeful action, through awareness and maturity is not employed, you will naturally move from a positive to a negative conflict strategy. Your POSITIVE CONFLICT STRATEGY is the correct, mature way to approach any situation while acting in one specific NEXUS TYPE. Your NEGATIVE CONFLICT STRATEGY is the incorrect, immature way to approach any situation while acting in one specific NEXUS TYPE. 

There are four POSITIVE CONFLICT Strategies:

  • DRIVER >> COMPEL TO POSITIVE PROGRESS
  • INFLUENCER >> VISION CAST + ENCOURAGE
  • SOLUTIONARY >> LISTEN + INQUISITIVE ASSESSMENT
  • STABILIZER >> QUERY FOR INFORMATION + BALANCE

There are four NEGATIVE CONFLICT Strategies:

  • DRIVER >> INTIMIDATION
  • INFLUENCER >> MANIPULATION
  • SOLUTIONARY >> DECONSTRUCTING
  • STABILIZER >> WITHHOLDING

NEXUS Blends (Type Blends)

In addition to the four NEXUS ‘types’, there are six BLENDS: or combinations of ‘types’. For example, someone that is primarily a SOLUTIONARY/INFLUENCER or an INFLUENCER/SOLUTIONARY is the ‘VISIONARY’ Blend. 

There are six blends, based on combinations of each of the four types. (see chart below)

 

NEXUS TYPE BLEND TYPE
STABILIZER/DRIVER or DRIVER/STABILIZER >> OBJECTIVE
DRIVER/INFLUENCER or INFLUENCER/DRIVER >> INSTINCTIVE
INFLUENCER/SOLUTIONARY or SOLUTIONARY/INFLUENCER >> VISIONARY
SOLUTIONARY/STABILIZER or STABILIZER/SOLUTIONARY  >> CONSCIOUS
STABILIZER/INFLUENCER or INFLUENCER/STABILIZER  >> EMPATHETIC
SOLUTIONARY/DRIVER or DRIVER/SOLUTIONARY  >> INDEPENDENT
