3. Herbie parked in a handicapped parking space and got a ticket with a huge fine. Now he is willing to park blocks away and walk to his destination. This would be a operant condition, because this isn't involuntary. He knows that if he parks there again, he might get a ticket, so he's keeping himself from being put in that situation again. 4. Your psychology teacher decided that dissecting a sheep brain would be beneficial. You decided that it was absolutely gross. At dinner, your mom put mashed potatoes on your plate and then put a platter of a steamed cauliflower on the table. You looked at both the potatoes and cauliflower and imagined the sheep brain and left the table screaming. This would be an example of classical conditioning because it's involuntary. The image of the food gave the student the image of the brain because they look the same, that's why she got sick when she saw the food because it reminded her of the image she saw in the classroom. 5. Your friend complimented you on your new shorter haircut and since then you have decided to keep your hair short. This is an example of operant conditioning, because again, it is not involuntary, it is something you choose.
