For example: Lets image there is a shy student (personal) and enters a class where all the student are present (Environment). Usually the shy student would go to the back of the class to avoid any attention(Behavior Component). Before she escapes to the back of the class she is loudly addressed by a friendly student who offers her a seat near the front. In this environment the shy student is introduced to a new behavior that changed her normal routine. Resulting in a behavioral change.
For example, someone with a high self efficacy received a poor test grade on math and would regard the poor grade to a harder than usual test, lack of effort or illness. While someone with a low self-efficacy would regard the poor grade to poor mathematical ability.
Bobo Doll Experiment
Results: Children who observed aggressive behavior demonstrated more aggression than those who did not. Boys were more likely to imitate same-sex models than females. Boys imitated more aggressive physical acts than females.
Critics: The models of the children had been strangers, unlike in a normal atmosphere which the children would be around family. Also no proof of long term effects on the children, since the study allows the children to be in the playroom for a limited amount of time.
For example: Doggy experiments - the observation of dogs that were trained to expect an electrical shock after hearing a bell. Later, placed in a shuttle box where one side was receiving shocks of electricity. The dogs previously trained to expect the shocks didn't attempt to escape to the other side.
