Intrinsic Motivation is taking a certain action for the sake ofenjoyment. It leads us to be more fully engaged andleads us to greater pleasure. After watching the trailer of the movie,Thor, he feels excited and thinks that it isgoing to be a very good movie accordingto the rating. That is why he plans towatch the movie tomorrow. 5. Confirmation Bias Mikes brother told him that the movie is really bad. Afterlistening to his brother, he feels annoyed. Mike decided toignore his brother statement about the movie. The nextday, he went to watch it with his friends. Confirmation bias towards the movie. He wants to watch itbadly no matter how others judge it to be bad. Confirmation Bias is a type of cognitive bias and asystematic error of inductive reasoning. We tend to payattention to information that supports our beliefs andignore and filter out the information that conflicts ourbelief. 6. False Consensus Effect His friend told Mike to get them some drinksfrom the juice bar without telling him whichspecific drink they want. And since Mikes favorite drink is orange juice,he assumed that his friend will also love orangejuice. Therefore, he bought orange juices for his friendand turn out, all of them hated orange juice. False Consensus is shown here because Mikeoverestimated his friends who think as alike ashe does. 7. Pluralistic ignorance Pluralistic ignorance is a situation which amajority of group members privately rejecta norm, but incorrectly assume that most ofothers accept it, therefore go along with it. Mikes friend saw Mike throwing the candywrapper on the theaters floor.

The END
