ДИНАМИКА МОТИВАЦИОННЫХ ХАРАКТЕРИСТИК КАК ФАКТОР РОСТА НАУЧНО-ИССЛЕДОВАТЕЛЬСКОГО ПОТЕНЦИАЛА УНИВЕРСИТЕТА
The article aims to refl ect relationships between motivational factors that infl uence the effi ciency of research
performance. Results of the correlation analysis have shown that the need for tangible rewards has a strong inverse
relation to the need for interest and usefulness. Analysis of the meaning of life orientations has revealed that a scale
“purposes in the future” prevails among respondents. Internal self-concept was found to be the most signifi cant
motivational source in the fi eld of research performance, whereas instrumental motivation proved to be an extremely
weak motivational source. A sample of NRNU “MEPhI”-based graduates and postgraduates partook in this study,
in the course of which the hypothesis of individual and dynamic nature of motivational profi le was confi rmed. Also
it was illustrated that changes in motivational characteristics have a strong infl uence on effi ciency of performance.
Moreover, the hypothesis about the necessity to work out the system of events whose purpose is to support talented
students and minimize their demotivation was supported.
