Abstract: In using a fundamentally different approach to theory formation, a new Model of Motivation is presented and tested through empirical research in various studies. Motivation is assumed to evolve around an objective and to proceed in twenty-four consecutive ‘stages’ that can be organized according to eight distinct groups or 'phases'. In covering current literature, the Model appears to provide a comprehensive conceptual framework for classification of current theories on human motivation. In empirical research, a first confirmation is found for constructs, based on the Model, that appear to capture the process of motivation. In making a distinction between the process of motivation and a so-called ‘process of interference’ aimed at addressing motivation, further confirmation is obtained for critical determinants of interference, including conditions, competencies and instruments, that appear to play an essential role in management of motivation. In an overview of implications, so-called ‘mechanisms of coping’ and ‘mechanisms of collective coping’ are introduced and observed on their potential impact on society
