People can have different behaviors in different situations. We can learn to recognize patterns of behavior. Understanding patterns of behavior helps us better understand people.
Understanding Patterns of Behavior
Habits: Repeated behaviors that become almost automatic over time. Routines: Repeated activities that occur in a predictable order. Conflict: Disagreement between two or more people or ideas.
Animals can be conditioned to learn patterns of behavior. Humans are not the only species that can learn and display patterns of behavior. Most patterns of behavior can be modified by reinforcement and/or punishment.
