I. Purpose of the Project By reinforcing a behavior, an experimenter may make a response more likely to reoccur. In the same way through punishing a behavior, the behavior will become less likely to occur. The purpose of this project is to prove that punishing a behavior makes it less likely to occur. II. Description of Behavior The behavior is the consumption of twizzlers on a daily basis. How many twizzlers a person consumes can be easily measured by simply counting how many they eat. People eat twizzlers as candy treats. They are excessive and not necessary to survival, but they do taste good. Twizzlers naturally are positive, because when one eats them, they are positively reinforced with a good taste, and perhaps a sugar high. The purpose of the project will be to change how many twizzlers one eats by punishing their consumption. Therefore the hypothesis is, if one does ten pushups after they eat a twizzler, then they will automatically stop eating as many twizzlers. III. Baseline data
