Example text

Hence, internal needs and external press can activate motives to engage in a particular kind of activity to achieve a conscious goal. 1. 1 Relationship between needs, press, motives, and goal in the activity structure. 28 Application of Systemic-Structural Activity Theory Motivation is another important construct that includes diverse motives that have a hierarchical organization. Some motives can be more important than others. Some motives can be conscious, semiconscious, or even unconscious. The relationship between motives is typically dynamic and can be modified during activity.

This process to some degree is similar to the means–ends analysis that was introduced by Newell and Simon (1972). In SSAT, it is treated as a goal-directed self-regulation process. In computerbased task, the final goal of the task very often is formulated by a subject and the goals and strategies of task performance are not defined in advance. Subjects progress from the anticipatory stage of activity to the executive stage of activity while the overall goal of the task gradually becomes clearer.

Hence, Diaper’s (2004, p. 17) unrelated goals are simply hypothetical motivational factors. In applied cognitive psychology, which is a base for engineering psychology and ergonomics, the concept of goal is practically unused. For example, in the basic textbook of engineering psychology written by Wickens and Holland (2000), we only discover the term intended goal when authors considered feedback in modelling human information processing stages. We can formulate the following basic conclusion. Goal is the basic concept of activity.
