Contingency-Shaped versus Rule-Governed Behavior
As children, we are taught the rules to follow for many different situations. Despite knowing these rules, there are some lessons we must learn through personal experience (contingency shaped).
Provide a minimum of two real-world examples of both contingency-shaped behavior and rule-governed behavior.
Think about your daily behavior and determine if it is primarily rule-governed or contingency-shaped behavior. Explain your rationale.
