Updating the Visual Summary of Self-Determination Theory

For those who are interested in keeping up with the developments in Self-Determination Theory here is my latest visual summary. The most substantial change is moving the terms "emotional" and "cognitive" out of the engagement box and into the attitude box. This is a result of a study by Johnmarshall Reeve and his colleagues in which they suggest that cognition and emotion may be better thought of as prior elements to engagement, rather than as parts of it. This makes sense to me because I think the emotional reactions inform the motivational processes that will then shape the cognitive choices that inform the engagement that follows.
