Psychologists, however, describe the temporary nature of motivation by pointing out that motivation is a performance variable. As a performance variable, motivation is often contrasted with learning. Though we learn many things not immediately demonstrated in behaviour. howwer, the actual demonstration of learned be- , haviour depends upon adequate motivation.
