Developmental psychologist Susan Harter has developed a theory around how children develop “competence motivation”. Her theory is interactional and accounts for both situational (parents, friends) and personal (trait anxiety) factors in the child’s context (B = P X S). Terms similar to “competence motivation” that we have seen already include:
- achievement motivation
The film Billy Elliot provides a perfect example of the two possible paths illustrated in Harter’s theory.
