The present study aimed to examine the effects of basic psychological need support behavior from teachers on learning behavior with an emphasis on regulatory focus. Junior High School Students (N=341) completed the questionnaire. Hierarchical multiple regression analysis indicated that autonomy support behavior from teachers predicted behavior engagement and persistence in learning of the promotion focus. The results suggest that autonomy support behavior from teachers plays an important role in supporting learning behaviors for junior high school students with high promotion focus.
