Abstract
Background Motivational interference is defined as the amount of impairment in a target activity due to the incentives of a non-chosen attractive alternative The amount to which pupils experience motivational interference while studying or while performing a leisure activity in a school leisure conflict situation is seen as depending on the values they attach to achievement and well-being At the same time values may also be effects of frequent experience of motivational interference in the respective areas Aims The study is aimed at investigating the reciprocal relationship between personal value orientations and the experience of motivational interference during studying and leisure Sample A total of 363 pupils (sixth to eighth graders at the time of first measurement) completed the same questionnaire twice in a 2-year interval Method The questionnaire included measures of achievement and well being value orientation and the experience of motivational interference during studying and during leisure in school leisure conflicts For this two scenarios were created In regression analyses achievement and well being value orientations as well as their interaction terms were used as predictors for experience of motivational interference at t(2) while controlling for experience of motivational interference at t(1) and vice versa Additionally in path models these relations were tested in an integrative way Results Pupils achievement value orientations were connected to differential changes in experiencing motivational interference during leisure and during studying in one scenario but only for pupils low or medium in well being value orientation Conversely experience of motivational interference at t(1) was related to changes in value orientations 2 years later High motivational interference during studying led to an increase in well being value orientation while high motivational interference during leisure was followed by a decrease in well being value orientation and an increase in achievement value orientation Overall path models supported these results Conclusions The results are discussed in terms of value change and are linked to self control and motivation research
