Can We Teach An Elephant To DANCE?

no food no dance
i'm soooo full
Continuation from my previous entry


The elephants, En Aziz and me

My answer is definitely YES because all animals and humans have variable behavior.


Quote:
The trainer's secret is to watch the animal closely. Whenever it naturally moves in the direction they want, they immediately reinforce it with a bit of food.

At this point, the animal doesn't know why it's been fed, but each time it moves in the direction the trainers want, they reward / reinforce it. Eventually the animal learns to turn in the desired directions, and a sequence of these form a dance.


Obviously people are more complex than animals. How can you use this training principle to help yourself or your children create successful habits?
