Example: Motivation model diagram Heckhausen Rheinberg

Published 2016-08-20 | Author: Stefan Kottwitz

A diagram of the cognitive motivation model of Heckhausen and Rheinberg. I made it as an answer to a question at http://golatex.de/schaubild-mit-tikz-t16597.html

  • styles are used
  • styles base on other styles (inheritance)
  • foreach-loops for repeating things
  • a matrix is used for easy rectangular positioning
