Physiological factors are events that are carried out primarily for the sake of the outcome or results. These tasks are done to meet the final result. Usually a person may not be concerned with the process itself if it pertains to a physiological factor, but the person really is anticipating the outcome. For example, day-to-day tasks are primarily done because people get into a habit of doing them when they know what the outcome will be.
When a physiological action is needed to be done, then the person may go through the process, but he or she wants the end result. When an employee intentionally ignores their boss’s request, the employee is really wanting to get the boss’s attention or reaction from his or her behavior.
