Intrinsic and Extrinsic Motivational Objects in Teachers and Future Teachers.
Jesus, Saul Neves de
This investigation, using Nuttin Motivation Relational Theory (1985), was designed to analyze the main motivational objectives responsible for the university and professional fulfillment of teachers and future teachers. It also analyzed how those objectives are distributed in both intrinsic and extrinsic terms, as well as the relation between motivational orientation and motivational intensity in the two fulfillment spheres (university and professional) referred to above. Two sample groups, one of 83 individuals and one of 109, verified that the motivational objectives of university fulfillment are arranged according to two factors--one corresponding to an intrinsic dimension of the motive's concreteness and the other to an extrinsic dimension, while the objectives responsible for professional fulfillment presented a "complex" distribution. On the other hand, the motivational intensity was significantly superior in relation to the motivational objectives of professional fulfillment than in relation to the objects of university fulfillment. Also obtained was a relationship between the motivational orientation degree and the motivational intensity for relating fulfillment motivational objects, expressly for university fulfillment, but not for professional fulfillment.
