Profile & colors explained

Important to know: The color profile is far from woolly fuss. Graves' theories form the scientific basis. Each module that followed has been extensively tested so that our product could be validated in collaboration with the University of Amsterdam.

Your color profile gives you a lot of insights about who you are. Want to learn more about how you can 'read' a profile and what motivations are associated with the colors? Then continue reading a bit more...

Our motivation

At the start in 2005, My Motivation Insights focused primarily on business. We discovered that many people do not or do not fully exploit their talents. A missed opportunity.

Our mission: give people the opportunity to learn at an early age where their strength lies. lay a solid foundation by offering guidance to make the right choices in private life, study and career. Straight forward. Right on target.

Your profile: all insights at a glance

In addition to making the right choice of study, your Young Adult Profile offers more insights that you can use immediately in everyday life. We list the most appealing:

1. Get to know yourself better

If you read the report that clarifies your profile, you will be amazed at how much it applies to you. It also clearly explains why you react in certain situations. This provides surprising insights into who you are as a person. Because the selfie of your inner self will also give you a different look of yourself....

2. Learn to better understand your surroundings

In addition to the explanation of your profile, the fact is also discussed in the report that you feel misunderstood or even become irritated at people with a certain profile. You also learn why it is probably the case the other way around. The person in front of you is likely to be driven by motivations that evokes your negative energy.

3. Learn to assess situations better

When you combine points one and two, you can assess many situations a lot better. You know why you react at a certain moment, and you know why the person (or persons) in front of you has a certain way of doing things. This will give you a head start. Not just at school or at work. Also, you will be able to assess situations in your private life, or even in your love life, a lot better.

4. Make the correct choice of study and career

Choosing a study (with an associated career) is one of the most important choices in your life. This heavy decision relies on knowing what your motivations are, where your talents lie and what you are less good at. These are the basis of your decision. We not only give you the tools to build this foundation. Using our StudieMatchmaker®, we also give you specific advice on what study or training best suits you.

Your profile and colors


How to 'read' a Young Adult Profile? We will explain it in a comprehensive way. And if you still have questions, just contact us!


prof plus

Each color bar in a profile represents a number of motivations. These can have a positive or negative effect on you. The higher a color rises above the horizontal line, the more important these motivations are for you. Your profile shows at a glance what items offer you the most support. Features and ways of thinking that are most important to you. Environments in which you feel most at ease and where you will be shown to advantage. All preconditions to maximize your talents.


prof neg

Motivations that you think less important or you feel an aversion towards, have a negative impact. Your pitfalls. And it is useful to know where they are: below the horizontal black bar. Your profile explains in great detail what motivations are less important to you or to which you take a dislike. Now that you have identified where the pitfalls lie, you can avoid them. Of course, you do not always succeed. But the very fact that you recognize them will save a lot of negativity, wrong choices and conflicts.




Now for the white lines that you see in each bar. These represent the energy balance that you have in that color. If the line is above the black bar, this motivation supplies your energy. If it is below, it will cost you energy



Now you know how to read your color profile, it is high time we showed you what each color stands for. Click through the colors to see their properties. Positive and negative.
