CHAPTER 4
ENTRY ONE
PRIMACY EFFECT / HALO EFFECT
First impressions goes a long way into how the people around you
interact with you. From those first impressions and the retained attributes
people denote you with, comes positive confirmation biases onto you.
The belief perseverance of the mind will only present the good of your
actions and filter out the bad, only as accidents perhaps.

Much like how younger siblings are always the apple of the eye, the
golden child, the prodigal son. The innocence of youth attributes inherent
qualities of purity and, well, innocence. These qualities tend to stick in the
parents minds, upringing devil kids and spoiled brats.

In my case, I was the untainted milk. Well not in an inter-family context.


More of a teachers pet context. Late high school years were pretty good
because thank you favouritism. Trust me, to be favoured by a teacher in
high school was amazing.
Unscheduled spot-check? Miss can I borrow your bag please, thanks!
Unfinished homework? Ill pass it to you okay miss I promise, thanks!
Feel like heading over to the canteen for food? Toilet please miss!
Emergency, thanks!
The lame excuses and cover-ups were ridiculous I kid you not. High
school teachers were cool.

CHAPTER 5
ENTRY TWO
OPERANT CONDITIONING
Operant conditioning is a method of learning of a particular behaviour.
Subdivided into two categories of negating prospects or positive ones.
Positive reinforcement/punishment, and negative reinforcement/
punishment. Eective in the use of the attaining or the elimination of
certain qualities in a person/dog/cat, this method is distinguishable from
classical conditioning in a way that it deals with punishment and
reinforcement.
Training your brother to not shoot at people at point blank range with an
airsoft gun, for example. Here were the events in chronological order and
precautionary steps in the conducting of this negative-punishment
operant conditioning.
Command subject in an appropriate manner not to randomly shoot -bullet
ricochets kill too you know- never point the gun towards anyone. You
might sneeze and squeeze. Subject shoots of into distance.
Subject appears to have attained a considerable level of intelligence and
resilience so it can be assumed that it will learn in time and proper
conditioning.
Prepare to head out for the afternoon meal. Put on shoes for protection
and social norms. Subject shoots my neck. Take away gun, apply force on
both ends of gun while maintaining leverage in the middle, only until both
halves separate. Dispose of both halves into fish pond.
Subject learns.
