  1. Intrinsic motivation is motivation that originates within a person. For example, I read lots of books for the pleasure they give me.

    Extrinsic motivation is motivation that originates outside a person. For example, when I was in school, I read some books because they were required by the teacher and I was rewarded with good grades if I read and understood them.
