Abstract

Willingness to begin, continue and complete a creative endeavor is a major factor related to output. On the motivational continuum are two stimuli affecting self-determined motivation: (1) intrinsic motivation – desire to involve oneself in a task solely for personal gratification or pleasure, and (2) extrinsic motivation – influence of outside factors on one’s desire to involve oneself in a task (Ryan & Deci, 2000).
