Pull out 2 things you found super interesting from this weeks reading on this topic and additionally, answer ONE of the following to answer (Saylor Foundation, n.d., page 20).

1. Describe a time when you learned new information or new behaviors through operant, associational, or observational learning.

2. Think about a time when you made a snap judgment about another person. Did your expectations about people influence your judgment of this person? Was the judgment fair or unfair?

3. Consider some of your beliefs about the people you know. Were these beliefs formed through assimilation, accommodation, or a combination of both? Do you think that your expectations now influence how you respond to these people?

4. Describe a time when you might have unfairly used an expectation about another person. Did the expectation serve as an energy saver?
