Image curiousity[edit source]

I'm always intrigued when I see this image being used - it's called 'frustration' - but I think it's just a (not so great) shot of a band by that name playing in a bar - I thought I'd ask here whether or not it's included because of its name, or if indeed folk feel that it genuinely reflects that emotion? (looks a bit more sort of 'hanging out' than 'frustration' to me :-) cheers, Privatemusings 05:54, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

I agree, PM. I think it has crept in, in part, bec. the band is called frustration and the image is sufficiently ambiguous to allow a loose interpretation of frustration. I've removed it from the Motivation and emotion/Gallery. Thanks for sharing. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 10:18, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Is the study of motivation relevant to all areas of Psychology?[edit source]

Hey Team, I was reading our assigned textbook and noticed a statement that I considered bold! The statement was referring to the history of motivation in the field of psychology, essentially stating that motivation specialists 'dispersed' themselves into all fields of psychology. It was said in the textbook that this was because "motivation proved to be significant for and relevant to practically every aspect of psychology" (Reeve, J. (2018). I pose this question to you, is there any aspect of psychology where motivation is not relevant?

What about personality, which is understood as quite stable? We might want to change aspects about ourselves and be motivated to do that, but in terms of our traits, we work with what we have. Hill Sarah Louise (discusscontribs) 11:12, 24 September 2020 (UTC)
