What is operant conditioning? Give an example of negative reinforcement in order to demonstrate how this concept can be applied to your everyday life.
Operant conditioning refers to behaviors that are influenced mainly by the consequences that follow them. There are four methods of operant conditioning: positive reinforcement, negative reinforcement, positive punishment, and negative punishment. Any type of reinforcement is aimed at INCREASING the likelihood of a behavior to occur. Negative reinforcement, specifically, focuses on removing an aversive/unpleasant stimulus in order to increase a behavior. For example, if you do not fasten your seat belt after a certain amount of time in your car, an alarm will go off - unpleasant stimulus. If you fasten your seat belt, the alarm will stop. Fastening your seat belt removed the alarm. Because you've removed an unpleasant stimulus (alarm), it will increase the likelihood of that behavior occurring again (fasten seatbelt).
How does Scott Peck's work, "The Road Less Traveled", relate to the concept of 'life journey'?
One of the main themes in Peck's novel is human perception; how each person makes sense of the world by using self-refection, open-mindedness, and past experiences. Peck also discusses how we view the concept of religion as a strict set of rules, rather than viewing the term as a general "world view.", and use it to become the best version of ourselves. Peck's work addresses the importance of balance in life, between science and religion, and the way they relate rather than differ from each other.
