Watson

Watson carried out the "Little Albert experiment" in which he conditioned an infant to be fearful of many different objects. This experiment added creedence to his claims that responses and behaviors could be conditioned.

"Give me a dozen healthy infants, well-formed, and my own specified world to bring them up in and I'll guarantee to take any one at random and train him to become any type of specialist I might select – doctor, lawyer, artist..."

Watson's theory was that a person's behavior could be entirely attributed to one's environment.

Watson's claims compel the teacher and parent to emphasize the environment they create in the classroom and home, respecitvely.
