1. Read the following case study: Case Study 2
PSY 101 Case Study 2
Freda is a second year college student and part-time model. She is studying biochemistry, and has a high GPA. She has been modeling for four years and has recently been approached by a modeling firm in London. They would like to offer her a great deal of money to work for them, but she would have to put her college plans on hold.
Freda’s mother thinks she should go to London and experience the world for a while. “Biochemistry will still be here when you get back,” she says. In reality, her mother hopes that the proceeds from modeling job will help get their family home out of foreclosure. Freda is aware of this and wants to help her mother.
Freda’s situation is complicated by her bulimia. She knows that if she takes the modeling career, she will be faced with criticism of her size and attractiveness. She is naturally shy, and as a high profile model, she will have little privacy.
Analyze the different psychological factors related to motivation at work in this case.
2. Write an analysis of the motivational and emotional factors that are involved in the case. In particular, consider:
What factors are motivating Freda to accept the job in London?
How might these motivational and emotional factors affect Freda’s decision? Please be sure to not neglect discussing Freda’s bulimia, referencing this particular eating disorder in Chapter 9-2d in your textbook.
What incentives and drawbacks do each of Freda’s choices come with?
Submit your work to your instructor.
