Self-Determination Theory of Motivation
we talk about first self determination theory? Sure, sure. Let's Let's do it. J C S d T. Then. Fantastic. I mean, just briefly. So self determination theory. Uh, either pick up and have a look at is a collection of many things. But the fundamental part It deals with the nature of what motivates. And it has this nice continuum from extrinsic motivation to intrinsic motivation. And previously we would talk about This is a dichotomy. Something is an extrinsic motivator or an intrinsic motivator. Their approach. Jesse and Ryan and all the other collaborators, um would say No, no, no, it's not that at all. We can understand that in more, more of a continue Is that just the more internalizing those that that need becomes, the more motivating it becomes, the more internalize it is, the more that I feel that it's me. It's by my choice that I'm doing this the more that I will derive actual enjoyment and interest out of it, the more intrinsically motivating it is. And the more intrinsically motivating it is, the more likely I will get well being and performance benefits from it. So it has this continuum. So we're saying your mother, your parents' desire for you to be very conscientious could be something that's anathema to your personality, to your trade. So your basic needs yourself, but you can slow. So it begins an extrinsic need, an extrinsic drive that you need to satisfy without otherwise there will be consequence. And the more you can internalize that and there we get into a bit of that, Um, cognitive dissidence. What do I do? But if the result of the cognitive distances to internalize it, then that's more likely to become intrinsically motivated and it becomes part of you along with their desire is your desire. So it's to appreciate, and in that journey of internalization or the degree of autonomy that we see in it of our of our actions, we get in the execution or pursuit of those things, we get meaning and purpose outside them. Mm. So in some ways, you know, the impure intrinsic is just enjoyment and interest. It's not meaning and purpose, necessarily, but meaning and purpose is derived in that journey. Yeah, as we're internalizing it. So it's a really nice way to think about extrinsic and intrinsic in a more refined way and in a more way, the mind trying to work stuff out. But the power of the power of motivation is when we own it when we feel it dies, and ultimately, when we're doing it through enjoyment or interest or put meaning and purpose to us.
