    When we reward actions and behaviors, we are "reinforcing" them. For example, if I give you a piece of candy, every time you say, "I am an abomination," I am rewarding your behavior. I am reinforcing it. And because I reinforce it, there's a likely chance that you'll do it again. So that you can get another reward. You get it? ~~~~~~~~~~ If you have anymore questions like this, try asking in the psychology section. This section is for biology.
