Audrey FullerPSY11103/06/2021Unit II Critical Thinking AssignmentAn example of classical conditioning that has produced a positive emotional response inmy life would be getting good grades in school. As a child, when my parents received my reportcard and I had good grades, they would take me either out to get ice cream or go to the store andpick out something for myself as a reward for my good grades. The neutral stimulus is the reportcard in the mail. The unconditioned stimulus is going to get ice cream or a toy from the store,which results in the unconditioned response of happiness. The conditioned stimulus is goodgrades, which causes the conditioned response of happiness because that means that I will berewarded. This example of classical conditioning has caused me to want to work harder in schoolso that I would be rewarded or even to just make my parents proud of me. Even though myparents do not still do this, when I do well on an exam or if I get good grades, sometimes I willgo and get ice cream or buy myself something nice to reward myself which actually helpsmotivate me to do well in school to this day.
