Molly HickokPSYC 100AP 6The BoboThis video discussed further the different types of learning.Starting with the Stanfordexperiment using the inflatable clown, Bobo, scientists had some adults show aggression to theclown in front of children and others show kindness.The adolescents mirrored the actions ofthe grownups.This examination was to study how learning can occur by observing andimitating someone else’s behavior, now known as social-cognitive behavior.This followsthrough on the 1970s experiment involving infants being left alone with strangers in regard tohow parents’ actions and demeanor influence those of their offspring.Furthermore, in expansion of this concept, we are not only persuaded by the actions ofothers, but also ourselves and the external environment.As with the case of developing foodpoisoning, individuals suffering from the pathogen may find themselves, in the future, avoidingthe culprit of the infection.Another perfect example of this is when young adults and teens,new to alcohol, don’t know their limit and drink too much.Because liquor is technically a typeof poison, the over ingestion of the substance can cause nausea and vomiting.
