Factorial study of achievement related motives.

Factorial study of achievement related motives. <jats:p> The purpose of this investigation was to find out the factorial dimensions among achievement-related motives. 77 subjects were administered 11 tests which measured achievement-related motives. Four factors were extracted by the principal components analysis from the correlation matrix and the factors were rotated by a normalized varimax criterion. The findings suggested that achievement-related motivation is not a unitary construct. There were three psychological aspects as follows: (1) the motive to achieve (Ms), (2) the motive to avoid failure (Maf), and (3) the personality component of the resultant achievement-oriented tendency (Ms—Maf). </jats:p> http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Psychological reports Pubmed
