Learned Industriousness.
Eisenberger, Robert
Psychological Review, v99 n2 p248-67 Apr 1991
Individual differences in industriousness are discussed. It is proposed that reinforcement for increased physical or cognitive performance, or the tolerance of aversive stimulation, gives a reward value to the sensation of high effort and reduces effort's aversiveness. Applications for self-control, moral development, and education are described. (SLD)
