7.5 Relational Responding Pigeon Non-Example Part 2

The absolute characteristics of the red circle alone control the pigeon’s response. The pigeon does not need to attend to any relations among the circles at all to make the response that is likely to be reinforced. It just has to identify and peck the red circle each time. The pigeon’s response and the condition for obtaining reinforcement are not based on a relation among the circles.

A pigeon is standing in a square box for RFT0704.
