Despite including this approach-avoidance distinction in his early work, Nicholls subsequently argued for two orthogonal approachoriented achievement goal states, task and ego involvement.

Swain and Harwood (1996) go so far as to state that an individual with both goal orientations cannot fail to be satisfied. They contend that when one goal is not attained, the second goal can be achieved. Duda (1988) has asserted a similar notion, stating that having both orientations may increase persistence because the person has two sources for determining success. I agree that being both task and ego oriented toward an activity is intuitively plausible and conceptually consistent with achievement goal theory.
