Self-Determination Theory on Regulation - Dictionary of Arguments
Corr I 443
Regulation/Self-Determination Theory/SDT/Deci/Ryan: (>Motivation/Deci/Ryan).
External regulation depends on rewards and punishments. It is the least autonomous regulation. It can be powerfully motivating but does not reflect the people’s interests.
Introjected regulation: is partly but not fully internalized regulation. Thus, introjected regulation involves people controlling their own behaviours in order to maintain or affirm their self-worth, avoid guilt, or feel the approval of others.
Identified regulation: is a more autonomous type of motivation. It results from people identifying with the personal importance of an activity for their own self-selected goals and values. When people have accepted a behavioural regulation as their own, the regulation will have been transformed and will likely be experienced as volitional and self-endorsed.
Extrinsic motivation: results when the internalization process has functioned most effectively, is integrated regulation. It results from people assimilating an identification with other aspects of their core self. >Self-Determination Theory/Deci/Ryan, >Autonomy/Deci/Ryan.
