  1. B.F Skinner 1904 - 1990

  2. Behavior • Respondent Behavior • A response made to or elicited by a specific external event or stimulus • Environment impacts behavior • Operant Behavior • Behavior that is emitted spontaneously and voluntarily rather than elicited by a stimulus • Has impact on the environment because it produces consequences

  3. Operant Conditioning • The selection of behavior through its consequences • Learning is measured by changes (increases and decreases) in the rate of responding

  4. Operant Conditioning • Reinforcement • Positive • Negative • Punishment • Positive • Negative

  5. Operant Conditioning • Schedules of Reinforcement • Shaping • Extinction

  6. Personality • Non-existent invisible structure • A repository of learned responses within a specific individual • All personality characterizations are the result of a failure to observe explanatory external variables that elicit the behavior
