The third study added selective optimization with compensation (SOC) to the examination of the constraint negotiation process of physically active leisure. There were significant interactions between SOC and motivation for negotiation strategies and physical activity duration. In the case of negotiation, there was a positive relationship between SOC and negotiation across motivation levels, with increases most pronounced for people with low motivation. In the case of duration, there was a negative relationship between SOC and duration for people with low to moderate motivation whereas there was a positive relationship between SOC and duration for people with high motivation.
