Abstract: The study deals with motivation which has been there for thousands of years and has been researched for long. Yet, uniformly reassuring answers to the questions arising from its research still have not been found. There are even fewer cases where research findings have been successfully incorporated into everyday corporate practices. This study deals with the relation between motivation and personality types. It is aimed at the study of motivational behaviour among people working in different positions and people with different personality traits. The question is whether there is relation between the effects of motivation tools, personality types, the purpose of the known and accepted goal of work, recognition and satisfaction. We also aim to find out what kind of relationship there is between them. Our research is based on a questionnaire survey (quantitative technique) conducted among the employees of a given corporation and on interviews with them (qualitative method). Our hypotheses were elaborated on the basis of the questions that respondents had to answer in our research. This study deals with the evaluation of those ones which were used in our questionnaire survey. All three hypotheses were proven. This proves that different tasks at work and different personality types need the application of different motivation tools. It has been proven that there is relation between the known and accepted (attractive) goal of work, its value and employee satisfaction. These relations are factors that reinforce intrinsic motivation.
