Step 1
1 of 2
  1. Latent learning can reinforce or disencourage observed behavior. For example, if you are observing your coworker deal with a difficult customer, your learning depends on the outcome. If the situation escalates, then you are less likely to repeat what your coworker did if you are in that same situation. If the situation de-escalates, you are more likely to repeat your coworker's actions when in the same situation.

  2. Insight learning sort of goes against operant conditioning, because there is no stimulus that induces the realization of a problem's solution.

  3. Intrinsic motivation shows us the limits of operant conditioning. Operant conditioning is based on rewards and punishment, but if someone is doing an action, such as reading, solely for the reward that comes with it, they are less likely to perform that action once there is no more reward.
