their rooms and hear potential Answer anyone you peer pressure

00:23

russian cleanliness paint all right Well first let's take a

00:28

look at what the incentive theory actually is Incentive theorists

00:31

believe that behaviour is motivated by something that's personally encouraging

00:35

or rewarding like how we promised ourselves an entire pizza

00:38

If we finished this questions so would an incentive theorists

00:41

suggest answered a well as nice is a clean room

00:44

and a feeling of safety can be they don't really

00:46

provide enough motivation for a kid to clean their room

00:49

Most kids generally need something a little more rewarding in

00:52

order Teo clean a messy room behind most shmoop dude

00:55

you should see my desk Alright tween cross off How

00:59

about answer be Well any incentive theorists worth their salt

01:02

wouldn't recommend peer pressure Yes it's a type of motivation

01:05

but it isn't based on any praise or reward instead

01:08

Involved the urge to fit in and look cool which

01:11

we're pretty sure it can be accomplished by eating an

01:13

entire so we can eliminate be you see what we're

01:16

looking for Well not quite This type of motivation would

01:19

most likely be suggested by n arousal theorist again there's

01:23

No reward being offered in this scenario Just that crazy

01:26

adrenaline rush we all get when we start cleaning our

01:29

rooms We don't all get that well never mind It

01:32

looks like we can sweep away See and that brings

01:35

us to answer d self actualization is the desire for

01:38

self fulfillment and the need to reach one's potential Well

01:42

unless you're the buddha room cleaning it seems pretty unlikely

01:44

that you would find self fulfillment vacuuming and dusting It's

01:48

also pretty doubtful that an incentive theorists would suggest motivating

01:51

a kid to clean their room with a concept of

01:53

self actualization leaving us with each paying them to clean

01:58

their room pretty straight forward right And incentive theorists would

02:02

suggest that motivating kids by giving them money a k

02:05

a reward a k and incentive kids like money All

02:09

right everyone likes money gold hard cash and exchange from

02:12

picking up some dirty socks sounds like a good deal 00:02:14.91 --> [endTime] to us
