Drive theories disagree with incentive theories of motivation with regard to how they answer the following question:

a. Are all motivations equally strong or do some take priority over others?
b. Are the motivations of humands fundamentally similar to or different from the motivations of other species?
c. Does motivation depend on factors within the individual or on stimuli from the environment?
d. Are some people more motivated than others are because of differences in heredity or differences in environment?

i chose answer C. because a flaw in drive theory is that it ignores the role of external stimuli - and incentives are external stimuli that pull us towards certain actions... but i am not sure if this would be correct. Can someone help me??

  • Psychology -

    Answer C is the best choice.
