Question and answer
Q: Tony loves programming. He was on the ground level of the computer revolution. This year his boss has set personal goals for each of the programmers, one of which includes a presentation from each

Taking into account self-determination theory, why did his manager’s goals and the presentation reduce Tony's motivation?
