Dr.Simon Sherry

Friday, Oct. 19 2012 PSYO 3280 Personality Psychology David C. McClelland → Motive (cf., need) leads to behaviour in particular situations - Achievement motive: doing better  Not all of us are equally driven, but a lot of people eare focused on doing better and achieving more access and reaching goals. - Power motive: having impact  People want to have power, and feel as if they had some type of impact on the world. - Intimacy motive: feeling close  Want closeness and intimacy with others → Motives are unconscious (used TAT also) → Can have more than one motive (motivation) working at the same time, they are not mutually exclusive. Sometimes they work together, and sometimes they cause conflict within each other. → Does not argue that everyone has these same motives in the same way, and they are situation dependent.
