Operant Conditioning

B. F. Skinner developed a learning model which behavior is maintained depending on it's consequences (Murdock, 2013). Reinforcers increase the behaviors. In the video below there is an example of positive reinforcers where chocolate is used every time a good behavior is displayed.
I thought this was a funny clip, and wanted to share. Skip to the 2:12 mark.


  1. It was fun video that shows positive reinforcement with chocolate. It makes more interest learning for the therapy :)
    Thank you for sharing !

  2. I think this is a good example of positive reinforcement. I also find it funny that it is used for Sheldon's idea of correct behavior and Penny actually falls for it. This show is funny and really displays a good example of positive reinforcement and Sheldon also displays negative reinforcement too. Very funny, really enjoyed the clip.
