As part of a "get to know you" exercise, I would like to do an experiment this year. I want each of you in class to take this test and email me the result page. It takes about 10 minutes (maybe less) and gives you (and me) a better understanding of what motivates/demotivates you.
HOPEFULLY, I can then tailor the class a bit more to you.

BTW this is in no means an endorsement of the book, speaker, or even the method, but it is a low cost experiment that could be useful and if not has very little risk involved.
