Neuropsychology of Poker (4) - Motivation and Learning

In this article
  • What mechanisms the learning process is subject to
  • How and by what your motivation is being influenced
  • Why continuous improvement is more important than short term goals

“Life is full of obstacle illusions”. Grant Frazier was probably not directly referring to your path through poker when he first produced these words. Nevertheless, they can apply to you. In fact, they are extremely relevant to your goals as a poker player. Your route to success and riches as a poker player is rife with emotional difficulties and unpredictability, as most worthwhile ventures are.

Whatever you hope to achieve as a poker player, you most certainly can. Whenever the future is conjured up in your mind, the destination can seem blurry and potentially much too difficult to attain. Refine your perception and focus and start drawing a clearer line to your goals both practically and conceptually. What you learn will motivate, and with some applied energy… okay a lot of applied energy, your goals will become a reality.

Nope, this series is dedicated for players with a bit of experience. This article gives you background information which beginners should take care less of in favour of learning the game & strategy.

Still a good and interesting read.

This is a very interesting article. Motivation from within and money shouldn't be the ultimate reason why we play poker, or the only reason that is.
