When we look at Kohler's experiment from a far we see, an ape with no food and then an ape with food. It is when we dissect the "star" chimpanzee's actions when we can truly learn from its decisions and overall better ourselves. In the chimpanzee example, we see star faced with the obstacle of having to get the food and take the necessary steps to reach this goal. From connected the bamboo sticks together and stacking the boxes, it was clear the apes were learning and teaching themselves on the fly. Kohler spoke on how the apes appeared to experience an "aha reaction" and that they were not learning from trial and error. I then tried to look at my life as a hole and find the connections in my learning to these chimpanzees learning to get the food. I found a strong comparison to myself becoming a welcome week leader this upcoming fall. I am smart enough to realize during the task of leading these incoming freshmen, I will be placed in tough situations where I must think on my feet. Trial and error will not be an option when it comes to helping real human beings, and it is with that pressure that I must be able to figure out that "aha moment" as quickly as possible. This is another amazing aspect of psychology, that I can make a connection with a chimpanzee, and truly better myself in my own learning on the fly.
