Sample text

Children who were ego involved and who doubted their physical ability reported the lowest levels of physical activity. Only when perceptions of ability were high did ego-involved children report high levels of physical activity. Ego-oriented athletes are the most likely to drop out of sport (Ewing, 1981), while task-oriented intramural sport participants are the most likely to continue involvement in their sport for a longer time (Duda, 1988). Understanding the Dynamics of Motivation in Physical Activity 31 VanYperen and Duda (1999) found that task orientation was associated with beliefs that effort, team play, and parental support were important for success in sport, but also, importantly, that task orientation led young players to improve in their performance.

The relationship between ego orientation and both positive and negative affect was small. Ntoumanis and Biddle concluded that the links between affect and goal orientations are slight, except for the relationship of positive affect to task orientation.
