Self-Determination Theory and the Flexstability Matrix

Research output: Non-textual formSound/Visual production (digital)Research


I offer a model of stable and flexible regulations of psychological energy that maps a number of concepts in Self-Determination Theory (SDT) such that their common structure is highlighted. Included are frustrations and satisfactions of the psychological needs, SDT's taxonomy of motivations, the causality orientations, emotional regulation, parenting styles, freedom vs. autonomy, and psychopathology. A new term is proposed that denotes the simultaneously stable and flexible regulation of human activity: flexstability
