  • Human Behavior: Conditioned Responses

    9 pages in length. The prevalence of conditioned response within the fundamental basis of human behavior illustrates how the concept of reward/punishment is integral to the way in which people act. To understand the connection between stimulus and learned behavior is to realize the strong motivational factor that draws an association between the two; that behaviorists like Pavlov and Skinner have clearly demonstrated the extent to which behavior in all species is prompted by reward/punishment outcome speaks to the straightforwardness of rescripting undesirable behaviors into desirable ones. The inherent value of such knowledge lends itself to addressing issues in criminality, education and a whole host of other areas where conduct plays an important role in a civilized society. Moreover, understanding the cues of behavior and how they are manipulated provides psychologists with the opportunity to restructure destructive thought processes. In short, Pavlov and Skinner set the precedent for proving how the components of human behavior are both simple and finite. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Aspects Of Spanking Children

    8 pages in length. Hardly was there a time before society became so politically correct and oversensitive to the aspect of discipline that children were routinely swatted for misbehaving. Whether done with a belt, spatula or by hand, a child who defied established boundaries or spoke out of turn would learn a quick and painful lesson that - in theory - would deter the same misconduct from occurring again. Indeed, some children were either too stubborn or careless and earned subsequent spankings for treading on thin behavioral ice, however, this form of punishment was practically universal in its ability to teach children about wrong and right. Today, however, spanking is listed as corporal punishment and can send a parent or caregiver to jail. The climate of child discipline has become so hot that there is no middle ground where advocates and critics reside; you are either a heathen for laying a hand on your child or you are a spineless parent for failing to control inappropriate behavior.

  • Freedom In Childhood And Adulthood: Compare/Contrast

    3 pages in length. The stages of human development are replete with myriad lessons that serve to carry into later phases. Gaining independence is an especially important time for a child inasmuch as it is one of the most significant stepping stones from one stage to the next. However, frustration is present in abundance during this time as the child has a much more liberal concept of freedom than the parent, which often results in the child's quest for independence being temporarily thwarted. Other times, it is the child's own inability to coordinate mobility with desire that impedes his quest for freedom. Adult freedom, by contrast, may or may not be governed by another person or entity; just because an individual is over the age of eighteen does not automatically mean he or she has carte blanche freedom.

    3 pages in length. When Randy Pausch said "experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted" in The Last Lecture speech he gave shortly before his death, his intention was to get people thinking about the benefit of failure. It is not that the late professor wanted others to make a habit out of not being successful but rather he valued failure as a key learning tool in the lessons of life. His message in short was that from failure comes enlightenment. Most people are taught to avoid defeat and disappointment because it somehow equates to less than a winning character. Pausch wanted to make an obvious point about how absolutely off the mark that type of indoctrination is to the quest for achievement, so he incorporated the aspect of failure into his class curriculum by awarding one student team a stuffed penguin who took the greatest risk and experienced the greatest failure. Symbolic of Pausch's penchant for empowering others, the penguin stood for the need to try and fail in order to succeed in life. No additional sources cited.

    9 pages in length. The manner by which human beings perceive what they see is comprised of a multidimensional approach of part-based and surface-based visualization that serves to segment the object and then reconstruct it in the mind's eye so as to finally see it as a whole. A chair, for example, is looked at two ways: 1) as a holistic entity and 2) as an assemblage of four legs, a seat and a back support; walking around that chair confirms there is yet another side that cannot be viewed from the front but serves to complete the structural identification of this chair. A 2-D photograph of a chair, by virtue of this understanding, would thereby make holistic perception more of a challenge due to self-occlusion; only because we know chairs have a backside do we automatically presume the one in the photo does, as well.

This is a perplexing reaction in today's world given the propensity of mental health problems that exist - both diagnosed and undetected - in what is often heralded as the world's most prosperous and progressive of societies. A significant reason for this mindset is because Americans are vastly undereducated about mental illness, mental retardation and addiction, and too often draw erroneous conclusions about the social value of these struggling individuals.
