Is the Zurich model of social motivation still valied today?

The Zurich model of social motivation, or Norbert Bischof's Zurich model for short, comes from psychology. It is a model of the interdependencies of motivation systems on which social behaviour is based.

These three motivational systems are:

- Security system
- Excitation system
- System of autonomy

(divided into the phylogenetically distinguishable facets of power, validity and performance)
The model "combines knowledge from ethology with psychodynamic approaches."
