Abstract [en]

The present study examines how individual’s motivation change over time and the effect of the individual private life. Through a quantitative survey the study investigated the effects of chronological age and life situation has on the internal motivation and external motivation. Studies have previously shown that there may be a correlation between chronological age and work motivation and relationship between life satisfaction and work motivation.

By satisfying our basic psychological needs for autonomy, competence and sense of belonging, the development of our internal motivation can be affected. The results of this study show no statistical significance and the basis of the study does not say anything about neither the chronological age or life situation impact on work motivation.
