Lifestyle orientation of high versus low achievers in traditional school sports: an holistic analysis

Davies, Simeon January 1994 (has links)
One hundred and four subjects aged 16-18 years volunteered to participate in this study which sought to identify via an holistic model those factors that characterise the lifestyle orientations of high and low achievers (male and female) in traditional school sport. Subjects were evaluated with respect to their anthropometric, physiological, psychological and perceptual responses. The data were statistically analyzed by one way ANOVAS for significant differences in the following pairs; males and females, high and low achievers, Mhi (male high achievers) and Mlo (male low achievers), and Fhi (female high achievers) and Flo (female low achievers). Anthropometric results indicate that Fhi and Flo were significantly different in their stature, mass and body fat, while Mhi and Mlo show no significant differences. A greater disparity existed between VO, max of Fhi and Flo compared with Mhi and Mlo, along with trends in heart rate and RPE responses that were also more divergent. Psychological responses indicate that Fhi and Flo were significantly different in five of the seven sub-domains of CATPA, while Mhi and Mlo were only identifiable in one. In the PSPP Fhi and Flo were significantly different in all five subscales, while Mhi and Mlo in only two. This contrast in variability between the paired group analysis of Fhi and Flo as compared to Mhi and Mlo appears throughout the data.

Die verband tussen tydoriëntasie en prestasiemotivering met spesifieke verwysing na die beroeps- en bedryfswêreld

Van Rensburg, Carel 18 February 2014 (has links)
M.Com. (Industrial Psychology) / The twentieth century is marked by fast developing communities which are currently moving into a new era of social, political, economic and cultural change. These developments include, among other, increased economic activities, over-population and an international tendency towards political conflict. In the South African environment these factors, together with the socio-economic structure and heterogeneous racial composition place an ever increasing demand on the occupational and organisational environment...

Die rol van angs, selfbeeld en selfaktualisasie in die prestasiemotivering van bestuurders

Harmse, Pieter Jan Hendrik 25 September 2014 (has links)
M.A. (Industrial Psychology) / The object of this study is to determine the correlation between selfconcepts selfactualization and anxiety on the one hand and -achievement motivation, as applicable to persons in middle management positions in the mining industry. Four different psychological questionnaires were used that is the Achievement motivation questionnaire of Malan (1978) as adjusted by Pottas and Lessing (1979L the Selfconcept questionnaire of Vrey (1974)s the IPAT Anxiety scale and the Selfrealization questionnaire of Osrin {1972}. The four questionnaires were administered to 110 middle-managers in the mining industry. It was found that the sUbjects obtained relatively high scores on the self-images selfrealization s achievement motivation and the three components of achievement motivations namely selfdetermination, the urge to complete uncompleted tasks and goal directedness. The scores obtained on the anxiety scale were relatively low. It was further found that-there existed a negative linear correlation between anxiety and achievement motivation,- in contrast with the initial hipothesis, namely that a curvilinear correlation exists between the two variables. Selfconcept and selfrealization both yielded a positive linear correlation with achievement motivation and its three components; which confirms the hypothesis. It was found that anxiety formed a negative correlation with all the variables. A positive linear correlation was obtained between selfrealization and selfconcept.

Motivation and social mobility

Ishiguro, Shunsaku January 1971 (has links)
This study attempts to explicate the observable differences in the rate of upward social mobility among the various ethnic groups in terms of a configuration of motives. The results of earlier studies investigating the relationship between achievement motivation and social mobility had indicated that the achievement motivation by itself is not sufficient to satisfactorily explicate the problem of differential rate of social mobility. It has been suggested that it may be necessary to incorporate the affiliation motive as the second motivational factor affecting social mobility. This study proposes to pursue this suggestion further. The general hypotheses to be tested here are as follows. 1. Ethnic groups vary in their motivational orientation, and they can be classified into groups of similar motivational configuration (motivational groups) determined by the relative strengths of the tendencies to approach success and to avoid failure, the two components of achievement motivation, and the affiliation motive. 2. These motivational groups vary in their levels of occupational and educational aspirations which are assumed to be indices of potential mobility. 3. Because of the feeling of alienation, the affiliation motive would be stronger among the members of the ethnic minority than among the members of the culturally dominant group, and it is expected that among the former the affiliation motive is more significant as a determinant of aspiration levels than the achievement motive. The sample consisted of all available Grade 11 and 12 boys from three Vancouver schools. The test consisting of the Thermatic Apperception Test (TAT), Mandler-Sarasen Test Anxiety Questionnaire (TAQ), and a set of questions designed to establish subjects' ethnicity, social class, occupational and educational aspirations were administered in a number of separate group sessions in each of the schools. Both the TAT and TAQ were scored in accordance with the relevant scoring manuals and the occupational aspiration score was determined by a modified version of the system used by Rosen. The results are in general not conclusive. The hypothesized relationship between motivational configuration and occupational aspiration is apparent although the trend is not statistically significant. There is, however, no apparent relationship between motivational configuration and educational aspirations. The results further show that when class is taken into account the aspiration scores of the members of the upper class is related neither to achievement nor to affiliation. The question of the relative strengths of affiliation and achievement motives also remains unresolved. It was concluded that the theory of achievement motivation may find useful applications in the problems of socio-economic phenomena, but these results indicate the improvements in both theoretical and methodological areas must be made in order to obtain more reliable results. / Business, Sauder School of / Graduate
