The expectancy theory has three key components: expectancy or effort, instrumentality or performance, and valence or reward. A person is motivated when he or she believes their effort will lead to acceptable performance (expectancy), performance will be rewarded (instrumentality), and the value of the reward is highly positive (valence). Expectancy is the perceived likelihood by the individual that one’s effort will result in the desired performance goals. This expectancy to probability belief extends beyond the workforce as illustrated in the following examples: · If I spend most of the night studying, will it improve my grade on tomorrow’s science test? · If I make more sales calls, will I make more sales?
This will show us how much customers like our product and if our performance and size fit their preferences.

This will give us an estimate according to the increase demand of the population who are interested in this market. Finally, our last strategy was the market share report in the Capstone courier, which we considered our best strategy since it is the most detailed and accurate one.

Describe and evaluate two or more theories of the formation of romantic relationships (9 marks + 16 marks) January 2011 One theory that outlines the formation of relationships is the reward/ need satisfaction theory that was developed by Byrne and Clore (1970). The theory suggests that we form a relationship because the presence of a particular individual is associated with reinforcement. This is because rewarding stimuli creates positive feelings and these stimuli may be people. These people therefore make us happy, so, due to operant conditioning, we seek to adopt behaviours that lead to a desirable outcome and avoid those that lead to an undesirable outcome. Therefore, the presence of an individual produces positive reinforcement as they have a more attractive appeal.
