Features of power motive and motivation development in childhood

Altunina I.R., кандидат психологических наук, доцент кафедры общей психологии, Россия, mpsi@col.ru
Abstract
Psychology is faced with different tasks set by modern society. First of all, it is important to explore the motives of social behaviour and, in particular, the motive and the motivation of power. It is well known that this motive affects not only interpersonal relationships, but also interactions between people in a wider social context. However, the problem of the power motivation structure and development is still unsolved. That is why the goal of this research was to study the features of the power motive and motivation development in children and adolescents. Basing on D. McClelland's and H. Heckhausen's concept of social needs and social motives, the author developed special techniques aimed at studying the coordination between the agespecific changes and gender differences of power motives and motivation (the total number of participants was 125). Besides these techniques, the author used observation, questioning, and experimentally organized group and individual play. The author put forward and verified fourteen specific hypotheses resulting from her concept of social behaviour motives and motivation structure and development.
