Question/Prompt: One basic assumption of behaviorism is the idea that learning is largely the result of environmental events. Behaviorists use the term ‘conditioning’ rather than learning. Discuss the basics of conditioning (see Ormrod, 2016, Chapter 3) and give an example from your personal experience and the Bible illustrating conditioning in humans.
