Need for cognition (NFC) and regulatory focus (RF) are important individual differences in motivation and goal pursuit. These constructs are widely used in the literature, often separately; no work has simultaneously examined the Need for Cognition scale (NCS) and Lockwood’s General Regulatory Focus Measure (GRFM). Here we explore shared theoretical underpinnings of the two constructs and assess whether they may be driven by common underlying factors. Considering purported overlaps between these scales and other constructs (e.g. personality, cognitive processes), we take a strong inference approach to test hypothesized bridges between the two measures. In a large (N=853) sample, we found NCS to be related positively to GRFM promotion and negatively to GRFM prevention scores, supporting mutual ties with BIS/BAS, intrinsic motivation, openness, and creativity. A generalized approach motivation, as well as intrinsic motivation, may thus drive both NFC and RF.

认知需要与促进焦点正相关,与预防焦点负相关

认知需求(NFC)和监管焦点(RF)是动机和目标追求的重要个体差异。这些结构在文献中被广泛使用,通常是单独使用的;没有任何工作同时检查认知需求量表 (NCS) 和洛克伍德的一般监管重点措施 (GRFM)。在这里,我们探讨了这两种结构的共同理论基础,并评估它们是否可能由共同的潜在因素驱动。考虑到这些量表与其他结构(例如个性、认知过程)之间声称的重叠,我们采用强推理方法来测试这两个度量之间的假设桥梁。在一个大型 (N=853) 样本中,我们发现 NCS 与 GRFM 促进呈正相关,与 GRFM 预防分数呈负相关,支持与 BIS/BAS、内在动机、开放性、和创造力。因此,广义的方法动机以及内在动机可能会推动 NFC 和 RF。
