Discuss three behaviors that you had difficulty categorizing.
- On a sheet of paper, write down 15 specific things you did over the course of the past 24 hours (for example: got out of bed, drove/rode/walked to class, brushed teeth, etc.).
- Next, categorize each of the behaviors on your list into one of three types or sources of motivation: biological (i.e., drive-reduction theory), stimulus (i.e., arousal theory), or learned (i.e., incentive approach).
Thoroughly discuss the following:
- Discuss three behaviors from your list that you were able to categorize easily (include the behaviors and their category). What were the motivations behind those behaviors?
- Discuss three behaviors that you had difficulty categorizing. What about these behaviors made them more difficult to categorize?
