When I think of Operant Conditioning, I think of when I was growing up. I was always rewarded for my good grades that I got in school. Since my parents chose to reward me for getting A’s in classes that made me want to work harder to receive that reward that they gave me. In my situation, they would give me money if I received an A. Since I was getting something for my hard work my behavior was modified by the reinforcement of my parents in my situation. Operant Conditioning occurs throughout many things in life that you wouldn’t think of. Such as when I have a headache, I take an ibuprofen or aspirin and the headache goes away.
