Though motivation to ones self and others is a result of developmental processes over time, its intensity is not finite. There are several other conditions that affect the development of such motivation. Johnmarshall Reeve (2009) suggested in his studies of motivation and emotion, that in order to effectively generate a motivational intervention, behaviors need to be directed on a day-to-day basis with consideration of diverse external factors. These methods must aim to increase performance and levels of motivation in both the self and others. Several studies have been conducted creating various methods of intervention but this method will focus on using feedback intervention, understanding cognitive, and metacognitive restructuring as affective intervention processes. Each analysis will focus on effectively developing behaviors that will aid in motivation increase over time. According to the studies of Kluger & DeNisi, (1996), feedback intervention is scantily understood but yields consistent result over the course of time. Their research has concluded that feed back intervention theory changes the main focus of attention among three general levels of control that include task-learning, task motivation, and self related processes. Feedback intervention (FI) uses positive and negative effects to promote or inhibit the behavior of the individual. By implementing feedback intervention, it must be developed so that a clear and obtainable goal is focused on. Factoring in this theory within an intervention plan can lead to consistency of behaviors that will increase motivation through positive feedback. Whereas, the negative feedback will strengthen the intensity of motivation by causing the individual to engage in the correct behavio... ... middle of paper ... ...present within individuals with low levels of motivation. Although interventions handle motivation deficits in a situational manner, it still is a product of the development of behaviors over time. By using this method of intervention interchangeably, an individual can learn to increase self-motivation, as well as to increase others in a gradual effective manner.
