            Discussion on Reinforcement

            The exercise allowed me to gain in-depth details regarding the role of reinforcement on people’s decisions. While playing the games, I learned that positive reinforcement adds new behaviors to an individual’s conduct (Beaumont, Cobban, Train & Wellman, 2007). During game 1, which entailed positive reinforcement, I was eager to select the images as I expected positive outcomes. As such, I was not afraid to choose any image due to the view that there would no negative outcomes irrespective of my choice. These experiences allowed to learn that positive reinforcement allows people to try new behaviors that become part of their habits after some time due to the affirmative results associated with them.
