Reward-induced Decreased Play Effects: Reattribution of Motivation, Competing Responses, or Avoiding Frustration?
Perry, David G.; And Others
Child Development, 48, 4, 1369-74, Dec 77
This study tested the hypothesis that when extrinsic rewards for an intrinsically interesting activity are withdrawn, the activity acquires aversive properties through the arousal of anticipatory frustration, which causes decreased interest. Subjects were 64 7-year-old children. (Author/JMB)
