Interdependent Effects of Autonomous and Controlled Regulation on Exercise Behavior.


Self-determination theory (SDT) is used to predict individual differences in goal-directed behavior. A fundamental tenet of SDT is that autonomously regulated behavior is more likely to be engaged in and sustained than externally controlled behavior. Unidimensional treatment of regulation is suboptimal. The current study utilizes a multidimensional approach… (More)
