e-Book The Psychology of Fatigue: Work, Effort and Control epub download

by Robert Hockey



The book offers a reinterpretation of the nature of the experience of fatigue, starting with an analysis of its historical and social context.

Fatigue can have a major impact on an individual's performance and wellbeing, yet is poorly understood, even within the scientific community. In the first book dedicated to the systematic treatment of fatigue for over sixty years, Robert Hockey examines its many aspects – social history, neuroscience, energetics, exercise physiology, sleep and clinical implications – and develops a new motivational control theory, in which fatigue is treated as an emotion having a fundamental adaptive role in the management of goals.

According to Hockey's (2013) theorizing, work does not inevitably drain energy and cause fatigue

According to Hockey's (2013) theorizing, work does not inevitably drain energy and cause fatigue. Instead, the key to predicting fatigue is to understand how work activities are perceived by the performer-whether those activities are viewed as being self-selected or externally imposed. Motivation and Reward: A severe fatigue can be described as a profound lack of motivation to complete or to start a task. Therefore, motivation has a major impact on fatigue. Hockey argues that fatigue has an adaptive function, serving the management of motivation and that fatigue is not the inability to do work, but a lack of desire to work.

Fatigue can have a major impact on an individual's performance and wellbeing, yet is poorly understood, even within the scientific community. There is no developed theory of its origins or functions, and different types of fatigue (mental, physical, sleepiness) are routinely confused. The widespread interpretation of fatigue as a negative consequence of work may be true only for externally imposed goals; meaningful or self-initiated work is rarely tiring and often invigorating. In the first book dedicated to the systematic treatment of fatigue for over sixty years, Robert Hockey examines its many aspects - social history, neuroscience, energetics, exercise physiology, sleep and clinical implications - and develops a new motivational control theory, in which fatigue is treated as an emotion having a fundamental adaptive role in the management of goals. He then uses this new perspective to explore the role of fatigue in relation to individual motivation, working life and wellbeing.
