Intrinsic Rewards

  • “…people who pursue intrinsic motivation in life show greater:
  • – self-actualization and subjective vitality
  • – less anxiety and depression
  • – greater self-esteem
  • – higher-quality relationships with friends and intimates
  • – watch less television, and
  • – use less drugs such as alcohol and cigarettes.” (Kasser & Ryan, 1996, 2001, taken from Reeve 153)
  • When the pursuit of money is motivated by one’s integrated extrinsic and intrinsic motivations there is no negative impact to one’s subjective well-being and enables the pursuit of self-actualization. (Sirvastava, Locke, Bartol)
