How high achievers react to financial incentives

High achievers usually value highly their services and place a high price tag on them. High achievers are usually self-confident. They are aware of their abilities and limitations. They are confident when they choose to do a particular job. 
They are unlikely to remain very long in an organization that doesn't pay them well. Whether an incentive plan actually increases their performance is an open question because they normally work at peak efficiency. They value money as a strong symbol of their achievement and adequacy. 
A financial incentive may create dissatisfaction if they feel that it inadequately reflects their contributions.
