'Superstition' in the Pigeon (Skinner, 1947)
Part of Soiléir's Original Voices Series
Behavior Analyst Certification Board Type 2 CE (1 CEU)
We've heard of the greats - Thorndike, Watson, Bandura, Skinner, Ainsworth - the fathers and mothers of behaviourism. We know their work and the impact it has on modern Applied Behaviour Analysis.
But often we know it third hand, or through the filter of a text book or of another person. These online learning credits give you the opportunity to read or revisit the classics, straight from the pen of the original thinkers.
Ever wondered why some gamblers blow on the dice? Or how sports people can have a 'lucky' trinket they won't compete without? This Paper Review focuses on 'Superstition' in the Pigeon by B.F. Skinner (1947). It's an examination of how seemingly random behaviours can be established through operant conditioning, and how this plays into human superstitions.
Simply read the paper by clicking on link below and answer the quiz that follows correctly. When you have answered all questions correctly and achieved 100%, press the 'submit' button. Your certificate will then be e-mailed to you.
