Effect of Incentive Motivation on Individual, Combative and Team Game Players
To understand the role of motivation in exercise and sport against the background of the general theories of motivation, one may have to seek answer to such head-sapping questions as to why individuals do sport, what causes sport behaviour, what benefits occurs from participation in exercise in general and highly competitive sporting activities in particular, what goals sports persons aim to achieve, what enhances activity drive, what establishes performance-excellence motives so forth and so on. The study was conducted on ninety players belonging to three groups (Individual, Combative and Team Games) with a purpose to characterize and to compare Incentive Motivation (consisting of seven systems i.e. Excellence, Power, Sensation, Independence, Success, Aggression and Affiliation) in Individual, Combative and Team Game Players. To compare Incentive Motivation in Individual, Combative and Team Games Players, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used. Incentive Motivation Inventory developed by Alderman R. B. and wood N.L. (1980) was administrated. Findings revealed that all the three categories of players were by and large similar influenced in relation to the dimension of incentive motivation except power dimension.
