Psychology notes: Learning Learning  Learning: change in behavior that results from experience  Learning occurs by: o Positive reinforcement: the desired behavior increases because we are being rewarded by a positive stimulus  Example:  Receiving compliments on your outfit will increase the chance of you wearing it again o Negative reinforcement: the desired behavior increases because we are being rewarded by the removal of a negative stimulus  Example:  Annoying sound stops when you put your car seatbelt on o Punishment: the desired behavior decreases by introduction of a new stimulus  Example:  Shouting “No!” when a toddler gets too close to a swimming pool o Extinction: the desired behavior decreases by failure to reward a behavior  Example:  Ignoring text messages of an annoying boyfriend 1. Classical conditioning a. Learning through association between stimuli before a response occurs b. Usually involves simple reflexes  Factors that affect learning through classical conditioning: o Timing o Predictability o Intensity o Frequency 2. Operant conditioning a. Learning in which the consequences of a response determine the probability that the response will be repeated, or not b. One learns a response by operating in the environment 3. Cognitive learning a. Insight learning: working through a problem until a sudden realization of a solution occurs b. Latent learning: “hidden” learning that occurs without apparent reinforcement and that is not revealed in performance until later c. Observational learning: learning by observing and imitating the behavior of others d. Learned helplessness: a tendency to give up on efforts to control the environment
