The Man with the Plan
Albert Bandura was born on december 4th 1925 in a small canadian town near Edmonton. He was the youngest of six siblings and went to a small school with two teachers. Because his school was very small and had little education he had to take education into his own hands. He started learning that even though you have a textbook you can learn even more by experience and it helps for his persona in the future. when he enrolled in the University of British Columbia used to take filler classes to pass time and took many classes. he also passed time in the library learning different things because he could. one that someone forgot to turn in a book so to pass time normally he read the book which had psychology inside it and once he read it it inspired it and he decided that this was going to be is career.
Three years later he graduated and enrolled in the University of Iowa because of all the psychologist that peaked is intrest like Clark Hull and earned his M.A degree in 1951 and his Ph.D in 1952. After achieving these his he had a position at Stanford University with the study of adolescence aggression that made him even more interested in modeling and imitation. To this day he continue his intrest in vicarious learning and continues his work.
Ex: If someone listens to angry loud music. their emotions will shape the music. but if they listen to calm soft music. they will copy that
Ex:Learning in class and passing a test rather than failing a test. Raises self-efficacy
Bobo Doll experiment
sometimes it may not work because of the way the child was raised prior to the experiment or just not in its nature to be violent or to be beyond violent. All depends on the genes and how the child was trained in my point of view. Like a animal is trained to do circus tricks or stay wild and survive on its own methods but the animal was still trained or just lets its instincts take over.
We learn these things by getting strucken by fear of something so e can never do it again. Like a mother and son thing. If the mother beats the son for hitting her as a young child. He will not do it again, but if he is a teenager and she beats him for hitting her except an earliar age. it wont have that much of a effect at all.
