Chapter 6 explains the process of learning (which is defined in the book as: "change in an organism's behavior or thought as a result of experience") and the different approaches one use's to make learning easier. One of the methods of learning discussed in the chapter is classical conditioning, in which people learn to respond to a previously neutral stimulus that has been paired with another stimulus that brings up a certain reaction. There are different forms of conditioning such as, high order or operant conditioning which is used in daily life for many reasons. Positive and negative reinforcement are also used to help someone grasp something through punishments and rewards. Observational, latent, and insight learning are also popular forms of the learning process.
