Importance of motivational orientation.Motivational orientation may be defined as the process of stimulating a person to accomplish a task with a given course of action. This stimulation in a person may be generated from within or by an external inducement like a reward. Internal stimulation is known as intrinsic motivational orientation where the person derives inner satisfaction for achieving a task. The satisfaction derived is irrespective of any reward. The external stimulation or the extrinsic motivational orientation involves a reward or accomplishment of a target. Intrinsic motivation allows the person freedom to do a task and gives immense satisfaction.
In order to explain these, India Study Channel (ISC) serves as an example. There are many sections in the ISC. Members contribute to the sections according to their interests. This is due to the intrinsic motivational orientation. The members derive satisfaction in sharing their views and expertise with others. The ISC conducts various competitions with cash rewards and points. There is an external inducement for the members and they are motivated and oriented to participate in the competitions. Here, there will be a set of rules and time constraints to complete the task. The members have to cope up with these restraints. The ISC gets good participation from the members by motivational orientation.
