Abstract

Introduction: Motivational structure is a construct that describe individual's directions to their interests, goals and concerns. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between metacognitive beliefs and thought control strategies with motivational structures. Â Materials and Methods: In a correlational study, a sample of 370 university students (2011-2012) from Ferdowsi University, Mashhad, Iran were randomly selected via cluster sampling and completed the following questionnaires: Metacognition Questionnaire-3, Thought Control Questionnaire, and Personal Concerns Inventory. Data were analyzed by means of Pearson correlation, stepwise multiple regression analysis and multiple analyses of variance. Â Results: Metacognitive beliefs and thought control strategies were significantly correlated with motivational structures (P<0.05). Punishment, social control, reappraisal. Metacognitive beliefs and worry significantly predict motivational structures (P<0.001). There were significant differences between male and female students in success and satisfaction (P<0.05). There were significant differences between single and married students and aborigine students and no aborigine ones in chance and dissatisfaction (P<0.05) Â Conclusion: Reduction in metacognitive beliefs and dysfunctional thought control strategies can improve motivational structures to adaptive ones.
