In contrast, the present paper directs attention to conditions where individuals with a strong explicit achievement motive display poor performance. We hypothesized that participants with a strong achievement motive perform worse in a bicycle ergometer task when task instructions lack achievement incentives than when the instructions include achievement incentives. Furthermore, we expected that, when achievement incentives are lacking, they show even worse performance than participants with a weak achievement motive. For the latter, we assumed that they are relatively unaffected by the achievement incentive content of the instructions. In a within-subject experimental design (N = 55) with two blocks (achievement incentives vs. lack of achievement incentives; each block consisted of three trials), our hypotheses were partly supported. The lack of achievement incentives brought out the worst (regarding performance), but the presence of achievement incentives did not bring out the best of participants with a strong achievement motive. In the discussion, we suggest how to improve future experimental achievement settings and reflect the results within the framework of the differentiation into implicit and explicit motives.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Wolff, Wanja</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-06-22T11:46:54Z</dc:date> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/35"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/49956/3/Schueler_2-a4xcnxur3tft4.pdf"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/49956/3/Schueler_2-a4xcnxur3tft4.pdf"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/35"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/49956"/> <dcterms:issued>2020</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Wolff, Wanja</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Schüler, Julia</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>Schüler, Julia</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-06-22T11:46:54Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:title>What Brings Out the Best and Worst of People With a Strong Explicit Achievement Motive? : The Role of (Lack of) Achievement Incentives for Performance in an Endurance Task</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
