Abstract [sv]

Det ansågs intressant att se om det förelåg någon skillnad vad gällande motivation mellan arbetslösa och de med en tillsvidareanställning, då arbetslöshet bland annat kan påverka en individs motivation, självkänsla och identitet. Studien genomfördes som en enkätundersökning med frågor som avsåg att mäta människors känslighet för belöning och deras känslighet för bestraffning (BIS/BAS-skalan, se Carver & White, 1994). Enkäten delades ut på en arbetsförmedling och en arbetsmarknadsenhet för att nå personer utan arbete. Dessa personer matchades sedan mot individer med en tillsvidareanställning. Resultatet visade på att det fanns en skillnad mellan arbetslösa och de med en tillsvidareanställning gällande känslighet för belönande händelser och positiva reaktioner. Dock fanns ingen skillnad mellan grupperna gällande de andra motivationsfaktorerna som mättes. Dessa faktorer innebar strävan att nå uppsatta mål, önskan om ny belöning och undvikande av bestraffning.

Abstract [en]

It was considered interesting to see if there were any differences in current motivation between the unemployed and those with permanent employment when science shows that unemployment may affect an individual negatively. The study was conducted as a questionnaire that sought to measure people's sensitivity to reward and sensitivity to punishment (BIS/BAS scale, see Carver & White, 1994). The questionnaire was distributed in Arbetsförmedlingen and Arbetsmarknadsenheten to reach people without work. These individuals were then matched against individuals with a permanent employment. The result showed that there was a difference between the unemployed and those with a permanent employment in sensitivity to rewarding events and positive reactions. However, there were no differences between groups regarding the other motivational factors that were measured. These factors were striving to reach their goals, desire for new rewards and avoidance of punishment.
