Behavior Shaping and Sequencing: 2 personal examples

  2. 2. how do we makenew behaviorseasier to do? B = MAT * *In the Fogg Behavior Model, one way you can make behaviorsmore likely to happen is by increasing a person’s ability to dothem (making them easier to do).There are 2 basic strategies for making behaviors easier: Shapingand Sequencing. Shaping involves a gradual progression ofbehavior (slowly increasing in difficulty), whereas Sequencinginvolves a specific series of small, achievable steps that cascadeto the desired outcome. Here are examples of each from myown life.
  3. 3. Shaping Map: Long-Distance Cycling Bike to gym (15 min one way/ 3.75 mi) Davis Bike Loop (60 min/ 12 mi) Bike to Dixon (+ beyond) (1.5-1.75 hrs/ 25-30 mi) (got a new, faster bike) Bike to Winters (2hrs/ 35 mi) Bike to Lake Berryessa (3.5 hrs/ 57 mi) Bike to Lagoon Valley (4.5 hrs/ 72 mi) Bike to Folsom Dam (5.25 hrs/ 82 mi) Bike to Vallejo Ferry station (w/ 30 lbs gear, wind, hills) (5hrs one way/ 70 mi)Kelly Schmutte
  4. 4. Sequencing Map: Learn Oil Painting Study watercolor and drawing in HS * Found a friend (Katie) also interested in oilThe * stepsrepresent keysteps thatcascaded Researched classestoward thefinal behaviorlike a dominoeffect. * Signed up for a 8-week class at the DAC Bought oil painting supplies (brushes, paints, canvas, etc.) Went to class every week (observed, practiced) Did the assigned project homework (weekly) Entered two pieces in the CA State Fair Kelly Schmutte
