I would just love to read an article about self motivation written in your language.

(If it's already there I'll humbly ask for a link, came up with nothing on search)

Just as with Jean Paulo's endless attaboys about my articles, this is both unneccessary and unneeded. I don't care.

I thought skinners' basic reward/punishment system studied in birds and other animals was ditched for use in explaining human behaviour decades ago?

I would argue that humans are more complex than simple behaviorism can explain but saying that behaviorism or these techniques 'don't work' is a bit silly.

Check the military, how any parent raises their kid or schools. Basic behaviorism: provide or remove punishment, provide or remove reward and you can modify behavior pretty well.

And here's what's funny: I didn't say that behaviorism was the only explanaiont of behavior now did I? In fact, with the dogs I specifically mentioned INSTINCT. There are also imprints.

But since you can't control either of those, you change beahvior with behaviorism.

And know how I turned off the comments with the comment that invariably people start asking debating what they THINK I'm saying rather than what I'm actually saying.....look at what you wrote and compare it to the actual article and what I said.

2nd paragraph under 'Consistency':

Quote:

Trainers or coaches working in a situation where athletes may be working with different people on different days should consider this; if youíre approach to coaching and cueing isnít standardized in the facility with everybody teaching everything the same way, you will confuse people.
