We all want to get stuff done, whether it’s the work we have to do so we can get on with what we want to do, or indeed, the projects we feel are our purpose in life.

Most of the material is US-based and "behaviorism" and "behaviorist" is how they spell it, and I freely admit that this side-bar is purely to get the stupid search engine "bots" to register "behavior" Behavioural (or "behavioral") theory in psychology is a very substantial field: follow the links to the left or right for introductions to some of its more detailed contributions impinging on how people learn in the real world.

Classical conditioning (also Pavlovian conditioning or respondent conditioning) is a mode of learning that occurs when a “Conditioned Stimulus” (CS) is paired with an “Unconditioned Stimulus” (US) that causes an organism to exhibit an automatic "Unconditioned Response" (UR) to the US.
