  1. Rewards reduce intrinsic motivation
    Reviewing 128 studies on the effects of rewards Deci et al. (1999, p. 658) concluded that:"tangible rewards tend to have a substantially negative effect on intrinsic motivation (...) Even when tangible rewards are offered as indicators of good performance, they typically decrease intrinsic motivation for interesting activities."
