[1] What is Motivel? (Q&A)

Last updated: 2021-01-08

What is “Motivel”?

Motivel is a web application that can measure the state of motivation with only voice and show it numerically.

How do we recognize motivation with Motivel?

Motivation is indicated by an indicator “Motivation”. If this indicator decreases, it means a decrease in motivation.

Note 1: Decreased motivation correlates with poor mind health. Poor mind health is a condition in which intense stress can affect the quality of daily life and work. See Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare “Guidelines for Maintaining and Promoting the Mental Health of Workers”.

What happens when you lose motivation?

Decreased motivation also reduces concentration and attention. In this case, there are concerns about operational risk (accidents / mistakes, unintended fraud, etc.) and human resource risk (retirement / leave, reduced work efficiency).

Note 2: Yerkees Dotson’s law: Moderate tension (stress) improves efficiency, but excessive tension (stress) lowers efficiency by deteriorating mind health.

What is the cause of low motivation?

There are various factors that reduce motivation, but it is possible to point out the disorder of mind health caused by stress (including anxiety and worries). It has been pointed out that the causes of stress include the quality and quantity of work, work failures, and the occurrence of responsibilities.

Note 3: The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare “Guidelines for maintaining and promoting mental health of workers” is used as reference.

How does Motivel measure motivation with only voice?

Have you ever been unable to speak well due to tension or stress? Motivel measures motivation from these vocal cord reactions.

How often does user do it?

We recommend that you use it at least once a day.

How long does it take per measurement?

In most cases, it takes less than 5 seconds. In addition, it takes up to 10 seconds according to the application specifications.

What is the minimum number of utterances?

You will need to speak at least twice. As the number of utterances increases, the measurement accuracy can be expected to improve.

How do we check the result?

You can check the measurement results on the web browser of your smartphone or PC. Group administrators of companies and organizations that use the group user version can view the results of group members on the dashboard on the Web browser.

How is accuracy?

The ability to discriminate between good and bad mind health behind motivation is 100% sensitivity and 61% specificity. In addition, regarding the state of mind health, it shows the same tendency as the questionnaire (GHQ30) and blood index.

Note 4: Tokuno et al (2017), “CASE STUDIES OF UTILIZATION OF THE MIND MONITORING SYSTEM (MIMOSYS) USING VOICE AND ITS FUTURE PROSPECTS”
Note 5:MiHMS can be executed with two or more utterances in consideration of daily convenience. Since this setting is different from the condition of the paper (note 4), it may differ from the above accuracy, but the same condition can be achieved by increasing the number of utterances.

What indicators are calculated in the measurements?

Motivation

The higher the value, the more motivated you are to work, and the higher your attention and concentration. The value of vitality is high, and the larger the vertical fluctuation, the higher the value.

Vitality

The higher the value, the more energetic (comfortable). In addition, the more energetic the state, the more the numerical value moves up and down (the sensitivity of the mind is high).

Relaxation

The higher the number, the more energetic (comfortable). In addition, the more energetic the state, the more the numerical value moves up and down (the sensitivity of the mind is high).

Pleasure

The higher the value, the happier you are. In addition, the more energetic the state, the more the numerical value moves up and down (the sensitivity of the mind is high).

How do we read the indicators?

Basically, the higher the number, the better each index.

What is the relationship between the indicators?

“Vitality” is calculated based on “relaxation” and “pleasure”. “Motivation” is calculated based on the results of “vitality” for the past 14 days at the maximum.

How do we read “Motivation”? (1/2)

First of all, recognize your average value based on the measurement results for several days (example: 50 points, roughly OK). The lower the number, the lower the motivation, but the more motivated and energetic people are, the more likely they are to move up and down around the average value. Therefore, the presence or absence of a fluctuation cycle centered on the mean value is more important than a temporary rise or fall.

How do we read “Motivation”? (2/2)

[update coming soon]

How do we read other indicators?

The more motivated and energetic people are, the higher the numbers for “vitality”, “relaxation”, and “pleasure”. In addition, the more motivated and energetic people are, the more likely they are to fluctuate up and down with each measurement, more than their motivation.

What are the features of Motivel?

You can visualize your motivation in just 5 seconds with just your voice. You can also know the state of concentration and attention, and the probability of the risk of a hiatus (incident) occurring.

The operation method of the application is so simple that no manual is required, and you can easily start using it without any preparation in advance. In addition, since the measurement is completed within 5 seconds, you will not feel any hassle even in daily use.

You can know the natural state without the problematic answer bias in the self-administered questionnaire.

Note 6: response bias is that the response is distorted by overestimation (underestimation) due to the consciousness or unconsciousness of the person being tested.

What are the benefits of using Motivel?

By reducing the risks caused by motivation, you can expect to improve corporate performance.

What kind of version can we use?

If you use MiHMS in companies or organizations, you can choose a group user version. For private use, you can choose a personal user version.

What are the features of the group user version?

Multiple people can use one terminal device (tablet, etc.) while ensuring privacy. It can also be used on personal smartphones and PCs, and detailed measurement results can be checked on the spot.

Can group administrators use a group manager tools?

Yes, they can check the results of the group members on the dashboard based on Web browser.

Can we download a CSV file?

Yes. You can download a CSV file easily and use simple data aggregation tool (Excel).

Can we use Motivel as time attendance management?

The time is recorded at each measurement and saved on the database server together with the measurement results. You can manage working hours with this stamping time. In the future, we plan to release a version with attendance management function.

How is privacy ensured?

In the group user version, you cannot see the results of other users.

Note 7: In the group user version, the result is displayed in a dialog box after measurement. However, this display cannot be redisplayed once the dialog box is closed.

How is security ensured?

Encrypted communication (SSL) and WAF (Web Application Firewall) are applied.

How is personal information ensured?

Please read the privacy policy and terms of service. WAV file that is created at each measurement is deleted immediately and completely after each analysis.

How much Internet communication speed is needed?

We recommend a communication speed of 4G line or higher. However, we have confirmed that it can measure even at communication speeds of 300 kbps or less (as of April 2020).

What is the recommended environment for the device?
