Abstract [en]

Locke and Latham (1990) suggested that intrinsic motivation is often confused with achievement motivation and proposed to distinguish between both. Two recent studies indicated that these constructs can be separated in distinct factors (Schattke et al., 2012) and predict different outcomes (Gagné et al., 2012). The goal of this research was to examine whether both constructs were affected differently by the same antecedence, namely autonomy and competence support. In four consecutive vignette experiments with a total of N=657 participants, we manipulated either autonomy or competence support in either a restaurant or an office vignette. Study 1 and 2 (restaurant vignettes) showed that autonomy and competence support fostered intrinsic but not achievement motivation. In Study 3 and 4 (office vignettes), autonomy and competence support fostered achievement as well as intrinsic motivation. The context dependent impact of autonomy and competence support suggests that intrinsic and achievement motivation are distinct constructs.
