Behavior Modification Paper Elementary Psychology 31:001 In this paper I will discuss a subject, in this case my friend, who has terrible cell phone etiquette. I will discuss first the behaviors that are being modified and then the conditioning procedure that will be implemented. My friend and I carpool to and from work every day during the week. During this ride she is constantly texting on her phone. There are two problems with her behavior that I intend to change. The first problem is that she holds texting conversations at the same time that we are talking in the car. I can be midsentence and all of a sudden she will have a random reaction to a text that she just received and interrupt me. She will then start to answer the text and tell me to “keep going I’m listening”. This annoys me because she is only half-listening to what I have to say and it is rude. This is the behavior that I intend to decrease through the use of punishment. The other thing that she does is she leaves the sound on while texting. So every time she receives a new text I hear her ringtone or at least the first part of it.
