"I want, therefore I can" - This is roughly how the common motivation theory, which focuses on our will, works. But it's not just about our alleged iron will – for a good one decision many other factors are also important.


Our mood as a decision factor

Of course our play Character and our individual Personality an important role in decisions.

But there are of course many other factors in our psyche that sometimes prevent us from doing what we want or what is right.

As banal as it sounds, our mood is a very important factor. Whether we are in a good or bad mood has a strong influence on our decisions.

One could say this also somewhat more polemically, namely: Who is not good on it, can also not think well.

Mood management in change processes

In research, and increasingly also in practice, there is no reason to speak of mood management in change processes.

The procedures are based on research results University Osnabrück at the chair Psychology in the field of personality psychology.

The method of the KOM-Motivator® was developed in the context of many practical applications in the industrial and private sector. Because Set play a central role in our actions. But our goals do not always fully suit us in decision-making situations clear in Eyes. What to do to realize what we really want?

Recognize goals

Before we devote ourselves to the practical application of goal recognition, I would like to clearly delimit the terms goals, intentions and motives - this is absolutely essential for the animal understanding of the topic.

Goals, intentions and motives - these are terms that all sound similar, but in reality require a sharp definition of terms: All three terms are used where we face a difficulty or a problem solution.

The deliberate confrontation with the situation

So we only set ourselves conscious goals or defined intentions when we are supposed to implement an action or change, their Implementation, ie the desired action, is very difficult to achieve.

In the first step, therefore, difficulties lead to a conscious examination of the situation and thus to the shaping of a desired action. The three terms of objectives, intentions and motives have a different function. The motifs influence our perception in such a way that we perceive the things that are relevant to the need satisfaction.

Example: The overburdened employee

The Employees feels at his Workplace uncomfortable and overwhelmed. A condition that bothers him more and more and is caused by the fact that the current activities correspond less and less to his personal inclinations.

Consequently, this employee will become increasingly dissatisfied until he analyzes his current situation in a need-based manner and determines that he would prefer a more creative job.

Unconscious motifs

This deliberate examination of the current situation is based on an often unconscious motif, which controls his perception in such a way that he increasingly perceives the negative aspects of his activity as the positive ones.

Motifs are like scent trails that draw us to points or situations, sometimes unconsciously I aufmerksam do that are no longer in line with our needs.

Things we would rather stay

Positive seen this ability helps us in the search for alternativeCourses of action in difficult situations and ensures that we can use our own needs don't betray. Intentions, on the other hand, have a different function.

They are representatives of difficult actions, which we do not want so much to tackle. They, to a certain extent, replace our action, which in reality we do not want to implement.

We should actually ...

Intentions are things that we should actually implement, but the emphasis is on EIGENTIAL. We play for ourselves and substitute doing by willing. The goal of no longer smoking is turned into an intention. In this way we calm our conscience, which insists on a healthier life, without implementing the intention.

Despite this “fraudulent” function of intentions, they are also very important for our actions. Because there is an intention before every action. The intention is the harbinger of the action and arises from a very complex thinking process.
