design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
•also known as behaviorism
•is based on the concept of explaining
behavior through observation
•Examines the learning process and how
organisms learn new behavior or modify existing one depending on whether events In their environments rewards or punish.
•It is observable and measurable
•emphasize relationships between the
organism and its environment plus the
organism's history of learning. The
"environment" is conceived as stimulation
that can be measured. The organism
responds with behaviors that also can be

•For behavioral theorists, personality is a label for sum of a person’s behavior patterns, of which any specific behavior is merely a sample.
•Behaviorists assume that human is determined mainly by what people learned in life, especially by what they have learned by interacting with other people.
