Today I met up with friends and was touched/moved by how hard they are all working. I understand my parents are upset with me. I’m upset with me. However, their continued yelling– is taking away some of my responsibility. Does this make sense? It’s the contrapositive/converse of the study on intrinsic motivation.
1. Students enjoyed playing a game.
2. Then the teacher gave them coins for playing the game.
3. After a while, the kids didn’t enjoy playing the game as much anymore.
1a. Likewise, I’m realizing how bad a situation I’m in.
2a. Then they started yelling at me: “Irresponsible! Bad! Move out!”
3a. I guess I’m not as bad as I think; they have some of the burden too.
