What are the types of motivation?

For successful learning, motivation is very important. The most significant for students are the following motives:

  • cognitive, that is, the desire to know more, to become smart;
  • emotional;
  • self-development – revealing one’s abilities and talents;
  • achievements;
  • external – rewards, punishments.

In addition, motives are divided into external (social) and internal (cognitive). An example of extrinsic motivation is “I need to pass the exam so that I enter university.” Intrinsic motivation: “I really like science lessons, so I search for new information all the time.”

It is very important to understand that internal motivation plays a great role and will help a kid achieve desired results.
