Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2013/Motivation and vegetarianism
An interesting subtype called freeganism, eating meat and meat by-productes only if it is 'free' or has been discarded. Politically and socially motivated as an anti-consumerist ideology. May be too far an extension from your original question, but I thought it would be interesting for consideration as it outlines another explanation for vegetarian behaviours.

- Cool - I'll see what I can find about it - would fit in to my section on more radical vegetarianism ( : Lynnmaree-27 (discuss • contribs) 02:06, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
Hello there! I thought perhaps you could mention religion? Some religions require people to be vegetarian, as this shapes that particular culture. Just a thought :) Good luck! Pheonix (discuss • contribs) 11:09, 27 October 2013 (UTC)
- Oops - yes def will put a religion section in there - thanks!Lynnmaree-27 (discuss • contribs) 02:07, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
Hey, I was curious as to how being a vegetarian can benefit well-being? Like, it would decrease the change of developing food poisoning, etc. You could also talk about the downsides as well, like the disorders you could get, e.g anemia. Good luck with your page, it looks delicious so far! DorisWeasley (discuss • contribs) 00:43, 31 October 2013 (UTC)
- Thanks for the tips! the old intrinsic motivation def fits in here with benefiting well-being. Also I'm thinking along the lines of moral vegetarianism decreases cognitive dissonance...thanks for the suggestions ( :Lynnmaree-27 (discuss • contribs) 02:07, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
Hi Lynne, Thanks so much for your feedback and also for the indenting! Yeah I haven't had a chance yet to go through it all and checking spelling etc. which I'm going to do now but thanks so much for your offer! I'll look into the intrinsic and extrinsic motivation concepts more but I've already exceeded the word limit. Thanks so much for all your help though, I really appreciate it! --U3068359 (discuss • contribs) 03:13, 1 November 2013 (UTC)u3068359
I just linked your page in mine, if that's okay. Feel free to check it out, and if you don't approve, I'll remove the link.

- Howdy - that's fantastic! thank you - actually disgust is one of the motivations I'm reading about now so that's very relevant. I'm just running a bit late getting it all done, but that will be a heading on my page. I'll add yr page as a link to mine as well ( : Lynne.
aaaandd.......I just went to link with yr page & I see I already have!lol ( :
I just had a quick look at your chapter and it looks great. I love the inclusion of the interesting fact and the take home message. It summarises everything in a nice simple way. I also think the quiz is a good idea and the picture of the bread makes me hungry, just quietly. One suggestion would be to include something about veganism too. It isn't in the question but I think we could assume that many of the motivations behind becoming a vegetarian would be the same as those for becoming a vegan.
Nice work Lynne! It will be interesting to see what text you're coming up with. I love that you've used some interesting quotes in there too.
Also interested to see how you build on extrinsic motivation, this was the first vego-motivation that came to my mind when I opened your page; people doing it to look good or fashionable etc.
Maybe in the disgust section you could link to some info about the recent ban live export movements and animal welfare campaigns etc. Remember that horrendous televised expose a couple of years ago? Best of luck! Keep up the good work PatrickBateman (discuss • contribs) 11:54, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
So Many Text Boxes
Just throwing in a late spanner to the works here. Might I suggest fewer text boxes in your article? Headings and sub-headings break down the article quite aprropriately and it sort of cheapens the best text boxes of the bunch.
