Final Project Post

Overall, this was definitely a class that I am glad I took. In Motivation I learned a variety of knew things. For example , I learned about philosophers and each of their opinions about motivation, I learned ways in which we select our mates, what motivates and drives people to do things in their lives, different incentive approaches, different motivational costs and how if you go through cost overload it can lead to less motivation of ones' self . Another interesting thing I learned about was sensation seeking, which in a minute I am going to talk a little more about, and tell you why it was my favorite part of the lectures. Although this is not half of the things I learned, these are the ones that I found most interesting in this course.

Favorite Part
My favorite part of this course would definitely be learning about the sensation seeking and different types of it. I really enjoyed learning about this because I am a very adventurous person and I love seeking out new things to try. Every time I go to an amusement park with friends I always try to get in the front of the lines because to me, the front seat of a ride is the scariest. When you're in the front of the ride you get to see every little drop and the whole park. I love the feeling of getting scared and I love trying fun new adventures. Watching the video on zorbing really made me want to look up more things on the internet to try myself, zorbing definitely being in my top 3. 

One of the videos I am going to show you is a man free-falling from the edge of space down to Earth! This man was completely out of his mind, and although I have done the dare-devil dive at six flags, there is no way I would be able to do this!! I give this man a lot of credit. The second video is my cousin and I para sailing in Hawaii. It was so much fun and the day we went it was super windy which made it even more fun up in the air!! Hope you enjoy the videos!" type="application/x-shockwave-flash

Extension outside of class:
I feel like I can relate to this outside of class because like I said in my previous paragraph, I am a very adventurous person and I learned something new that I can try if I ever visit New Zealand (which at some point in my life, I am definitely going to). I feel like everyone should experience some sort of thrill or adventure in their lives, because at some point they won't be able to do it anymore. At least they can look back and see that they took risks and were crazy. It's like the old saying "You'll never become old and wise if you're never young and crazy".
