Also, investigation of motive formation mechanisms might be important for development of psychological theory. 
Based on the ideas of V.K.Vilyunas, four mechanisms of motive formation were analysed: motivational conditioning (1), motivational mediation (2), motivational conditioning with predictable reinforcement (3) and motivational mediation with direct reinforcement (4).
