MRG’s Individual Directions Inventory™ (IDI) captures the deep motivations that drive individuals to gain satisfaction in work and life.

The Individual Directions Inventory™ (IDI) is designed to measure an individual’s attraction toward specific situations and behaviors based on the types of emotional experiences the person is drawn to. The IDI provides feedback on 17 variables in 6 categories: Affiliating, Attracting, Perceiving, Mastering, Challenging and Maintaining. It is invaluable in understanding the links between a person’s motivation and their leadership behavior when paired with MRG’s Leadership Effectiveness Analysis™ instrument.
