Physiological Reactions…. These changes due to emotions follow a procedure starting with the brain. Then, the changes are carried out by both the Endocrine and Autonomic Nervous Systems. Physiological needs drive an organism to act in either random or habitual ways.
[Particular response may depend on the certain emotions one is experiencing.]Examples: Increased heart rate, lump in your throat, shaking, sweating and nausea.
Sympathetic Nervous System releases Nor-Epinephrine (Adrenaline) producing these physiological changes: 1. Palms sweating 2. Increased heart rate 3. Focused attention 4. Greater skin conductance
Physiological Reactions in Threatening Situations…
We use attention, imagination, passion and processes to pursue our goals. Our most basic motivations lead us to survive and meet our need to stay safe or to obtain food , water and shelter.
The physiological and psychological factors that cause us to behave as we do.Social Motives1.Need for achievement 2.Fear of failure3.Fear of success
Motivation: What motivates someone to achieve power?
We are motivated to do something by needs and desires that we hold inside of us. “We feel desire or drive to do something and then behave in ways to accomplish or fulfill some current or future personal goal.”[Internal Motivation is different from External Motivation due to the source of the reward.] “Internal rewards are personally controlled and come from inner satisfaction derived from completing the activity.”
External motivators are controlled by others but can also provide incentive to take action toward attaining something the person itself wants.
