Motives and Goals

Abstract

This chapter provides an overview of the main theories and findings on goals and motivation. We address the origins, manifestations and types of goals, and the various factors that influence motivation in goal pursuit. We further address goal conflict and, specifically, the exercise of self-control in protecting long-term goals from momentary temptations.
