    Each participant’s global competence score and the motivation score were calculated by adding the scores of the 15 items. The scores could range from a low of 15 to a maximum of 75.

    These two variables were weakly correlated, r(206)= .16, p=.019, as summarized in Table 1. Although these two variables have a weak, positive correlation, this conclusion is still important due to a significant p-value. Therefore, the probability that this correlation arose due to sampling variation or chance is very low. We can then conclude that, in general, as perceived subjective norms by friends increase, amount of time spent on aerobic exercise also…
