There are many small and intriguing facts that I will definitely remember from Psych 1001. For example: the placebo effect. I will definitely remember the fact that placebo pills and real pills 'cure' depression to about the same extent. I will also remember that IQ tests are actually more of an indicator of job performance compared to in-person interviews. I found that amazing and interesting. However, there is one major concept that I will surely remember down the road; classical and operant conditioning. These were both things I had heard of and learned to an extent before this class, but the concepts were definitely cemented in my head thanks to this class. I think these concepts are important because I do believe that much of what we do is because of something that we learned through these interesting types of conditioning. I also find it amazing that Pavlov was able to make dogs salivate to the sound of a metronome. If one had no idea what classical conditioning is this would sound completely absurd! I also think that Skinners ability to shape the behavior of animals is insane. The story about him training pigeons to basically fly a missile is definitely one I won't forget!
