Document Summary

Teresa amabile: most people aren"t anywhere near to realizing their creative potential, in part because they"re labouring in environments that impede intrinsic motivation. E. g. how organisms experienced/interpreted/constructed in relation to their motives. In the 1950s, animal testing, particularly animal puzzle solving, was performed: from these tests, two discoveries were made: First, if one gave monkeys puzzles to solve, they will enjoy solving them, continuing to pursue this task to the point of becoming work. Second, reward systems changed the game into work; puzzles were no longer considered games: eventually, monkeys solved puzzles solely for the sake of getting a reward, not for the stimulating experience of the puzzle. Thus, the frame" of the puzzle was changed; this approach to puzzle(s) is a cognitive issue. A common excuse one may have for one"s inability to complete task is i don"t have enough willpower .
