Answer: What are the approaches to motivation? Choose one of the approaches and explain how it affects motivation. Motivation is the label we give to processes that energize (activate) and direct behavior toward particular goals. [ Motivation affects the strength of behaviors, persistence of behaviors, and direction of behavior (direction = choosing which behavior to make). Motivation
changes over time as conditions inside the body and in the external environment change, With these changes, behavior changes. For example, late in the day (or night) most people get tired and slow down. As the time since you last ate increases, you are more likely to feel hungry. When an interesting person walks in the room, you may stop what you are doing and go up to meet her/him. Motivation is used to explain how and why such changes in behavior occur. Motivation is very closely linked to reinforcement. A high level of motivation for something (food, social power, cigarettes, etc.) will make it easy to use it as a reinforcer. ]

The Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire (or 16PF), is a multiple choice test that yields results that are closely related the the Big Five.

The questionnaire measures the 16 primary traits, and the Big Five secondary traits,which have become popularized by other authors in recent years. From early in his research, Cattell found that the structure of personality was multi-level and hierarchical, with a structure of interdependent primary and secondary level traits.
