  2. For those people who are unable to learn from positive reinforcement
      changed or behavior stopped by negative reinforcement?
  3. Can knowledge of negative reinforcement prevent the need for positive
  4. What should you do with people who cannot learn from either positive or
  5. Which causes learning to take place faster negative or positive
  6. If you do not know what type of reinforcement is a person's reinforcement
      what type should you use first?
  7. What type of reinforcement is remembered for a longest period of time?
