"The more an individual has been deprived of play, the more it will play when given the opportunity, as though compensating for the previous shortfall (Jensen 1999). More saliently, an individual is prepared to work in order to be given the opportunity to engage in play."

Patrick Bateson


"An individual absorbed in play seems not to require any external reward."


"In the case of play, particularly when the individual is playing on its own, the motivation is intrinsic - that is, no external reward is needed."


"In social play the reactions of the play partner may provide additional reward, increasing the likelihood that the initiator will continue playing. If the partner doesn't respond playfully the initiator will stop."
