A week went by and Mike did not clean his room. His mother, although she proclaimed a consequence of no television for a week,she still cleaned up after him with no actual punishment. In other words Mike's mother was not extrinsic with her request therefore he had no motivation to clean his room, nor learn from his behavior.
This is the last time I clean up after you!
The story would possibly go on to say that Mike may have had the same attitude at school with his assignments if his teacher did not manage her class well well. If there is no motivation at either the micro or meso systems then it would be very possible that in the macrosystem Mike would have no independent self development though he would not be motivated to try on his own and have someone do the work for him.
