Blog Post #5: find an visual illustration of behaviorism in every day life, perhaps a TV show, an advertisement,… and explain briefly.

The clips provided are from two of the current most popular shows. The office and the big bang theory. In the big bang theory a character is teaching the other character what is acceptable behavior by rewarding her with a treat every time she does something good. In the office, one character uses the chime on his computer matched with a treat to make the other character have a physiological response to the chime.

    haha i love both of these shows, i think they really have a good grasp on the theories at work while making it easy to understand for a non scholarly observer. Great picks
