Cognitive and motivational-interpersonal factors undoubtedly influence the learning process concomitantly and they probably interact with each other in various ways. Classroom learning does not take place in a social vacuum but rather in relation to other individuals who themselves-in addition to manifesting various personal emotional ties-act largely as impersonal representatives of the culture. During the course of personality development the individual also acquires a characteristic motivational orientation to learning.
