Science and Human Behavior“Suppose we approach a child who is playing happily by himself and give him a small piece of candy. We may observe the sudden emergence of a great deal of objectionable behavior—asking and teasing for more candy, then crying, and perhaps even a temper tantrum . . . The sight and taste of candy are discriminative stimuli under which the behavior of asking or reaching for candy is frequently effective.” (pp. 206-207)
