Verbal stimuli

B.F Skinner

  1. Verbal stimuli are seen to evoke responses appropriate to the variables which cause effect to the speaker. There are two types of verbal stimuli which include conditioned reflexes of the Pavlovian society and the second one is discriminated operant. The appropriate listener reflects conditioned reflexes by being emotional to the topic the speaker was discussing. Conditioned reflexes are portrayed immediately by the listeners while the discriminated operant is not reflected immediately by the listeners and take some time.
  2. The verbal stimuli reflected here is conditional reflexes since the person whose hands have the green yellow caterpillar will respond immediately and very fast as away of avoiding the poisonous worm. The person will respond immediately either by throwing away the worm or by asking for help from the people hiking in the rainforest. This is one way listeners and readers respond immediately since the situation is a conditioned situation requiring a quick take of action. Different people will react differently in such a situation and thus different reactions are experienced with such kind of conditional situation which requires quick and immediately response.
  3. This effect when the light is being altered is known as conditional tact which is one form of verbal stimuli. It is seen as one form of discriminative situation such that when the light shut offs that’s when the oven is ready or when the door is locked up that’s when the light is not necessary. The pairing of these two effects has a big effect on the reader and listener which is the autoclitic effect since the person affected by the light is affected immediately as a way to show the verbal stimuli.
