  • Theory Of Varied Consumer Choice Behaviour And It's Implicate
    2,739 words
    INTRODUCTION For decades, scholars and practitioners have been frustrated by the very limited capacity of either psychological or marketing models to predict individual choices on particular occasions. This paper discusses a theory which explains the degree to which the extant models omit important influences that produce varied individual choice behaviour. The focus of this paper is on the sequences of product purchases. Discretionary actions and activities are also covered. THE THEORETICAL AN...
  • Punishment As A Form Of Behaviour Modification
    2,389 words
    Introduction Punishment is a process through which "the consequence of a response decreases the likelihood that the response will recur" (Gray, 2002, pp. 115). Further, punishment can be seen as an effort to decrease the response rate to stimuli by either removing a desired stimulus or presenting one which is undesired (Gray, 2002). Recent studies suggest that punishment can be an effective method of behaviour modification. However, as reported in Lerman and Vorndran (2002), there are a number ...

    325 words
    Boundaries of acceptable social behaviour that are institutionalised are called laws; those that are informal are called norms. Norms and laws protect the social order, without which societies could not exist. Still, they are often ignored or violated, and the result may be conflict- the disruption of social order. Sanctions are reactions by society to approved or disapproved behaviour. Reactions to approved behaviour are called positive sanctions; reactions to disapproved behaviour are called n...

    Nature or Nurture? The Determination of Human Behaviour The nature versus nurture debate has spanned over decades, and is becoming more heated in the recent years. Following the mapping of the human genome, scientists are pursuing the possibility of controlling human behaviour such as homicidal tendencies or insanity through the manipulation of genes. Is this possible for us to ensure that humans behave in certain way sunder certain circumstances in future? This is highly doubtful, as the determ...
  • Health Behaviour Change Social Cognition
    2,358 words
    Is it possible to help people to change to more healthy behaviour? Theories about changes in health behaviour tend to look at: o Cognition: the way people define and think about what they do and how they change their minds in ways that can lead to changing the ways they act; and Context: the cultural, social, physical, emotional and psychological environments that shape people and the factors that can facilitate change. No one theory can sum up all the factors in health behaviour, but theories c...

    Attempts so far to examine fruit and vegetable consumption have been limited, mainly examining those with low fruit and vegetable consumption or examining the behaviour within the framework offered by the attitude models described earlier in this chapter. A shortcoming of many of the studies outlined above, is that a starting point is often assumed where the main facilitator of fruit and vegetable consumption is that individuals are motivated to eat fruit and vegetables largely for health reason...

  • Genetic Altruism Altruistic Behaviour
    1,190 words
    Altruism is thought of as being behaviour exhibited by one individual to benefit another, with no direct gain but at some cost for that first individual. Apparent altruism is the idea that although behaviour may seem to be fully altruistic (i. e. non-selfish) behaviour there is actually a gain for that individual. Genetically this gain tends to refer to the fitness of the individual i. e. their reproductive success. It was Darwin who first suggested the problematic paradox introduced by some al...

    ARE WOMEN MORE ALTRUISTIC THEN MEN Darwin (1859, cited in Gross, 1988) in his book on the Origin of Species (1859) stated species evolved through the process of natural selection in which only the fittest survive. This implies selfish behaviour. However, some species do show altruism (e. g. , rabbits banging on the ground to alert others of danger). Altruism has been defined as helping someone in need with no expectation of receiving something in return. Humans also show altruism but psychologi...

    #39; s findings. Skinner was not convinced that all behaviour was based on reflexes, he argued that all behaviour is under the control of 'reinforcement' (reward and punishment) in other words we behave the way we do because of the results created by our past behaviour. However unlike Watson, Skinner never denied that heredity and inner process (for example a person's feelings and the mind) had a role in explaining behaviour. Skinner's research led him to develop the operant conditioning. Operan...

    I agree with the claim that how stable a society is depends on how it reacts to both the extremes of human behaviour, positive and negative. If we go back in time to see how society gradually evolved, we " ll see that the very basic reason for the formation of societies was to exercise a controlling influence on human behaviour. Early man began to hunt animals in groups. These groups became the tribes. Each tribe was governed by a set of primitive laws. Perhaps it was forbidden to kill a member...

    Task 1: The behaviour of the modern professional sports person is coming under increasing scrutiny. They are expected to portray good behaviour at all times, whether on or off the sports field. This is because there is an increasing interest in sport, and sports people, and the media coverage is huge. Along with this coverage, sports people are gaining larger salaries and sponsorship deals than before, so they are now under more pressure to act as role models. Any bad behaviour they commit is pi...
