Several theories and their variant extensions have been posited to explain or to suggest factors that influence technology adoption. However, these theories seem inadequate in certain scenarios. For instance, none of such technology adoption theories identify or account for the possible influence of external non-personal and non-technology incentives or rewards or compensation on persons faced with the choice to accept or use a technology. However, existing psychology research posits a positive correlation between the offer of financial incentives and task. Therefore, this paper purposes to uncover the philosophical and theoretical underpinnings to this suggested relationship, and also to provide observable empirical evidence in support.
