Sample text

Roberts et al. (1996) investigated the relative effect of task and ego goal orientations on beliefs about the causes of success and satisfaction in sport. Based on a median split of the task, participants were divided into four groups (high task, high ego; high task, low ego; low task, low ego; low task, high ego). Analyses revealed that the high task groups attributed success to effort more than low task groups did. In contrast, high ego groups attributed success to ability more than did low ego groups.

I suggest that an experienced athlete can switch between ego and task involvement, more or less at will, and adopt the appropriate motivational strategy for the context-but that this capability is the product of experience. Thus an athlete may be very ego involved in a sport when competing but become very task involved when training in the same sport. Further, an athlete may be ego involved in a competition but then at a point when the outcome is certain, for example, become task involved. We must not forget that task and ego involvement are dynamic constructs, subject to ebb and flow as the athlete plays the game or continues with the activity (see the earlier discussion of conceptions of ability; Roberts, 1992a).

It is only when a person has progressed to more advanced stages of moral development that he or she is able to take the perspective of others, give equal consideration to the needs of all parties involved in a moral conflict, and feel concern about fairness and justice. In achievement goal theory, ego-involved individuals are primarily focused on the self and on how they rank in comparison to others. It is argued that the preoccupation with normative success and social comparison may inhibit moral development of the egoinvolved person.
