Today we could admit the growing demand for high educated experts, but modern technologies provide not only new learning opportunities, but also enormous amount Web-resources to plagiarize. In this paper we try to investigate role of intrinsic motivation on attitude towards plagiarism. Some results received during a project “A cross-cultural study of a new learning culture in Germany and in Russia” concerned intrinsic motivation of ITstudents and attitude to plagiarize are discussed. Analysis showed absence of significant differences in intrinsic motivation and significantly more tolerance of Russian students to plagiarism. We presented analysis of reasons for plagiarism and probable ways to solve with this problem in educational practice.
Resources of personality coping potential - achievement motivation, affiliation motivation, and locus of control are considered in the article. Results of empirical research (227 respondents, 115 women, 112 men, average age - 29 years) has shown that motivation to success is negatively connected with the choice of adaptive behavioural strategies of cooperation and collaboration. Thus, pronounced affiliation motivation is connected with the choice of strategies of cooperation and altruism. Fear of rejection has a positive correlation with strategies of retreat and suppression of emotions. Besides, according to our results, internal locus of control is connected with the choice of adaptive cognitive, emotional and behavioural strategies. The features of connection between personality resources and the choice of coping strategies with life crisis can be taken as principles of practical recommendations, which can be used in the psychodiagnostics and in psychological consultation.
Certain altruistic phenomena in the workplace that exceed the bounds of contract theory can be explained within the framework of gift exchange theory. We discuss the application of gift exchange theory to interactions between an employer and an employee as well as between employees themselves. We emphasize the opportunities of gifts to improve coordination and contract efficiency in the workplace and argue that there exists the productive function of gifts. We use the framework of a market for externalities in order to demonstrate that given the interrelated activities of agents a gift exchange between them can lead to Pareto improvement.
