This research is an attempt to compare executive functions in two groups with adaptive and maladaptive goals. 31 individuals with adaptive goals and 39 with maladaptive goals were selected with multistage sampling in Tehran. The individuals were asked to answer questionnaires of motivational structure (PCI) and Tower of London (TOL). Data were analyzed by t-test to compare the means of two independent groups. The results showed that there were some differences between two groups in executive functions, in terms of total time, time-tested, the total number of errors and the total result. The research concludes that there is a direct relationship between executive function and adaptive motivational structure, it means any person with more adaptive motivational structure also will receive better results in executive functions.
