Abstract:In achievement goal literature, most attention was given to the intrapersonal effects of achievement goals. Even though it is recognized that achievement motivation takes place in a broader social context, so far little attention has been paid to the interpersonal effects of achievement goals. Secondly, a diverse view exists on the degree of stability among achievement goals. In this study both themes were addressed. First, the relation between achievement goals and social value orientations was examined, among 230 individuals who play team sports. Secondly, the stability of dominant achievement goals, over time and different contexts, was studied among the same group of individuals. The results demonstrate that there is no relation between achievement goals and social value orientations. Furthermore, findings indicated that mastery goals are more stable than performance goals across different contexts, meaning performance goals are more prone to contextual changes.
