Overview

In understanding human behavior, psychologists have long been interested in what motivates specific actions. Debates have pitted extrinsic motivators (e.g. rewards/punishment) against intrinsic motivation in attempting to determine what best motivates individuals. This book provides a summary view of what research has determined about both extrinsic and intrinsic motivation, and clarifies what questions remain unanswered. Divided into three sections, section I revisits the debate about the effects of extrinsic incentives or constraints on intrinsic motivation and creativity, and identifies theoretical advances in motivational research. Section II focuses on the hidden costs and benefits of different types of achievement goals on motivation and performance. Section III discusses theory and research findings on how extrinsic and intrinsic motivators may work in everyday life and over time. This book is of interest to researchers in psychology, education, and business, as well as to a wider audience interested in promoting optimal motivation and performance.
Coverage in this book includes:
• Debates and controversies in motivational research
• Developmental nature of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation over time
• Influences of parents, educators, and employers in facilitating motivation

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Early research suggested that we act as we do because of biological needs and extrinsic motivators; but in the 1970s and 1980s, a third concept<-->intrinsic motivation<-->was introduced. A refueling of the debate over intrinsic and extrinsic motivation led to the creation of this book as a means of reviewing the earlier work and providing an update on recent findings. Fifteen contributions, most from psychologists affiliated with academic institutions in the US and Canada (and one from the School of Education, Hebrew U. of Jerusalem), examine various aspects of the developmental nature of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation over time; influences of parents, educators, and employers in facilitating motivation; effects of achievement goals on learning and performance; and the roles of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation in self regulation.
