Hi Christina & Meggin,

Great question, Meggin. And, Christina, I agree with your answer.

Some context: “Serve” used to be called “Meet Needs.” And the old System for Identifying Motivated Abilities (SIMA) term was called “Meet Needs – Fulfill Requirements.”  This motivational theme by itself (without all of the integration with other themes) assumes a stance of ongoing responsiveness – i.e.  what is required here?  What do you need? And the satisfaction emerges when the need is met and the requirement fulfilled.   Generically speaking, those with this motivation usually don’t like blank slate situations or being told to define their own course of action.

Cheers,

Joshua
