Mental pollution, Part 2

In my book Ad Nauseam: How Advertising and Public Relations Changed Everything I wrote, “As a psychologist, it disturbs me greatly to see that our society’s primary systematic application of the principles of psychology has been as a tool for commercial and political persuasion, and for the manipulation of behavior in the service of commerce.” Propaganda, which I wrote about in my last post, is only one psychotechnology  of influence used by the propaganda industries – advertising, public relations and political consultancy. 757 more words

古典制約-Pavlov 的狗狗實驗 Classical Conditioning Pavlov’s Dog Experiment (1902)



呢個非常經典,有關於行為學習嘅實驗,稱為古典制約 (Classical Conditoning) 或 Pavlov 的制約 (Pavlovian Conditioning)。其實生物學家 Ivan Pavlov 起初係打算研究狗狗喺餵食嘅時候口水分泌嘅情況。不過,佢無意中發現,當佢每次行入實驗室嘅時候,無論佢有無帶食物都好,狗狗都會開始不自覺咁流口水,從而發現古典制約。

古典制約分為三個階段。第一,喺未有制約 (Conditioning) 之前,食物對狗狗嚟講係一個非制約刺激 (Unconditioned Stimulus, UCS),狗狗見到食物就會流口水,係一個非制約反應 (Unconditioned Response, UCR)。由於見到食物就會流口水係與生俱來嘅,並唔需要學習,屬於反射行為 (Reflex),係古典制約中嘅重點。相反,一個中性刺激 (Neutral Stimulus, NS),例如鈴聲,喺制約發之前,對狗狗嚟講係唔會產生任何反應。 20 more words


Behaviorism Explained

This title may be a little ironic as in this video I try to explain the workings of behaviorism and the concepts behind it. You will find out in this video that behaviorism only focuses on observable behaviors and doesn’t focus on how things occur or the thought process behind behaviors. 214 more words
