Watson's view on behavior was that it was purely elicited. He believed that people did not experience emotions, that they were a response to some other stimuli.

Amanda Wingfield was the only person who tried on a daily basis to pull her daughter out of her lonely world. She did it out of love for her daughter, but the way Amanda went about doing it just seemed
