Title: Question
Post by: Arturo on April 15, 2017, 10:23:36 PM
In psychology, what is it called when a behaviour is happening, and then something is taken away, and the behaviour is more likely to happen?

Negative reinforcement? However, I'm not certain.

It's called, "You're taking it away because you want me to stop? Nice try, but that's not gonna happen."  :smileshake:

Yeah it was negative reinforcement. At first I thought it was tank who had the right answer because I was confused earlier when I wrote this. So I thought the confusion was caused by something crazy I never heard before. But after further looking, it turns out it's negative reinforcement. Thanks everyone!
