Mar 14, 2013 - The 7 Basic Drivers of Motivation By Susan Weinschenk, Ph.D. 2 days ago - We also had questions about the ability of grown unschoolers to pursue higher education, if they chose to do so, and to find gainful and satisfying adult employment. 3 days ago - I think that a certain kind of reflective maturity will naturally issue in a middle-ground here: we need more resources than mere invocation of certain “springs of action”, such as choices, but we do not need to travel back to the very beginning of the sequences that issue in our behavior. You can use the science of habits to help We all have self-personas. It turns out that it's actually very easy to create a new habit or even change an existing one, if you understand the science behind habit formation. We tell ourselves, and other people, stories about who we are and why we do what we do. This then I'd rather turn this point on its head and conclude that the requirement that leads to the need for self-causation is over-rigorous, since it apparently leads to absurdity. Some of our self-personas and our stories are conscious, but others are largely unconscious. Those questions led us to the survey of grown unschoolers that is described in . Seventy percent of them also said, in one way or another, that the experience enabled them to develop as highly self-motivated, self-directed individuals.
