Thank you Bomb

It's like with fishing. You have to wait, but you've gotta have your line in the water to catch a fish

Haha unless some fish jumps up out of the water onto land and bites onto your hook :S

TSSM 2008

Question 30.
Which schedule of reinforcement results in the slowest extinction of the learned behaviour?

A. fixed ratio
B. variable ratio
C. variable interval
D. fixed interval

Variable interval is the slowest schedule of reinforcement to lead to extinction. An example of
this schedule is that of poker machines. Since reinforcement cannot be predicted, and is based on
time, cessation of responding will be gradual.

SO MUCH FOR PEOPLE CLAIMING THEY CAN USE GAMBLING AS AN EXAMPLE FOR VARIABLE RATIO.

this doesn't prove that poker machines are based on variable interval though, it's just what the tssm people said.

I agree with TSSM being a joke after doing their 2008 paper, however when I asked my teacher, she said she was 100% sure it's variable interval...

laijawen...

you need to overcome this obsession/fixation on which schedule of reinforcement is hardest to extinguish... (possibly thru systematic desensitization?? )

focus on other more important aspects of psychology because the truth is, it wont get asked... especially as it isnt in any textbooks..

I better get karma for this haha. I went through all the effort of contacting the "chief assessor" for psych - Roger Edwards. And asked him what would be accepted out of the following: "Which schedule of reinforcement is most difficult to extinguish?"
> A) Variable Interval
> B) Variable Ratio
> C) Fixed Interval
> D) Fixed Ratio

He replied with "They would have to allow a and b!"

So there. It's settled once and for all.

you should ask him about the order of the stimulus and response in operant conditioning

Haha. Nar I'm 100% sure on that one. Even my teacher whose been an assessor for 15 years said it was right. And she has never been wrong before. Don't wanna bug him or waste his time haha. Trust me it's definitely right. I would basically bet all my money on it.

Which is the EASIEST to extinguish?
Surely it's the exact opposite of this schedule.
