Motivating operation: Garlic smell on my fingers from mincing garlic.
Discriminative stimulus: Stainless steel sink
Behaviour: Rub my hands along the side of the sink
Consequence: Garlic smell is gone (negative reinforcement).Got this tidbit from our friend and it works! I am likely to do this the next time I chop garlic because the behaviour was reinforced. No more garlic pan hands for me! A friendly kitchen tip brought to you by Behaviourist at Play.
