At the workplace, it is forbidden to do something which you’ve never done it before. That’s why, before you start working on something new, ask someone who knows about that job to show you how to do it. So, you can learn and will be able do it. Operant conditioning is a learning process in which the probability of response occurring is increased or decreased due to reinforcement or punishment. It was first studied by Edward Thorndike and later by B.F Skinner. The underlying idea behind operant conditioning is that the consequences of our actions shape voluntary behavior.

Children observe the people around them behaving in various ways. This is illustrated during the famous bobo doll experiment (Bandura, 1961). Individuals that are observed are called models. In society children are surrounded by many influential models, such as parents within the family, characters on children’s TV, friends within their peer group and teachers at school.
