What are the motives that drive us?

Jon Maner is a leader in the science of motivation. His work bridges social psychology, organizational behavior, and evolutionary biology to study questions related to leadership, dominance, status, and relationships: Why do people take risks? Why do certain people grab our attention? How do we respond to rejection? How do we protect ourselves with fear, anxiety, and disgust? Why do people desire power, and what are they willing to do to get it?
