Motivation
 
is the process by which activities are started,directed, and continued so that physical or psychological needsor wants are met.When you are motivated, you usually show threecharacteristics:1.
 
 You are
energized
to engage in some activity2.
 
 You
direct
your energies toward a specific goal3.
 
 You have differing
intensities
of feelings aboutreaching that goal
THEORIES OF MOTIVATIONInstinct Theory
Human beings are born with specific
innate
knowledge abouthow to survive. These innate tendencies are
preprogrammed
 at birth.
INSTINCTS
: innate tendencies or biological forces thatdetermine behaviorDoes not explain WHY the person engages in a particularbehaviorBiologists who study animal behavior later redefined instinctsas fixed action patterns
FIXED ACTION PATTERN
: innate biological force thatpredisposes an organism to behave in a fixed way in thepresence of a specific environmental condition
Drive-reduction Theory
Human beings act according to their
needs
and
drives
.
NEED
: biological state in which the organism lacks somethingessential for survival, such as food, water or oxygen
DRIVE
: state of tension that motivates the organism to act toreduce that tension
HOMEOSTASIS
: tendency of the body to return to, andremain in, a more balanced state A 
need
results in a
drive
, which is a state of tension thatmotivates the organism to act to reduce the tension and returnthe body to
homeostasis
Drive motivates us to engage in a variety of behaviors tosatisfy biological needs.
Over a period of time, the strength of the drive wouldcontinually increase as long as it is not satisfied.
Incentive Theory
 All creatures are motivated by gaining
incentives
.
INCENTIVES
: environmental factors, such as external stimuli,reinforcers, or rewards, that motivate or behavior
Incentives pull
us to obtain them,
drives push
us to reduceneeds.This push-pull difference between drives and incentivesexplains some otherwise perplexing and seeminglyunexplainable behaviors.
Cognitive theory
Human beings are motivated
intrinsically
and
extrinsically
.
Extrinsic Motivation
results from external rewardsEngaging in certain activities or behaviors that either reducebiological needs or help us obtain incentives or externalrewards
Intrinsic Motivation
comes from within the personEngaging in certain activities or behaviors because thebehaviors themselves are personally rewarding or becauseengaging in these activities fulfils our beliefs or expectations
Biological and Social NeedsBiological needs
are physiological requirements that arecritical to our survival and physical well-being.(food, water, oxygen, sleep, etc)
Social needs
are needs that are acquired through learningand experience(need to excel, for social bonds, to nourish and protect others,for independence, for fun and relaxation, etc)
Humanistic Theory
Human beings seek to satisfy successively 'higher needs' thatoccupy a set
hierarchy
.
Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs
is a theory in psychology that
 Abraham Maslow
proposed in his 1943 paper, A Theory of Human Motivation.The Hierarchy of Needs was conceptualized byMaslow’s observation of monkeys. If monkeys were given achoice between play and food, they would most likely choosefood. If monkeys were given a choice between food and water,they would most likely choose water.First four components were considered as ‘deficit’ needs, whilethe last component (self-actualization) was considered as ‘being’ need.
