Orientation Motives describe how we see ourselves:
- Person Orientation tells about self-control, self-esteem and self-image. Acceptance, well-being and image drive people heavily invested in Person Orientation.
- Place Orientation is about where we feel best and how we are involved in the environment we live in. Gaining perspective, renewal and relief are important here.
- Time Orientation shows to what extent we are affected by the time period in which we live, the effects of difference in seasons and the urgency with which we accomplish our goals. Relief, nostalgia and escape from time constraints and pressures are most meaningful with Time Orientation.
