Another aspect of behavioral perspective is social learning which is believed to be learned through acts of violence seen on television or movies. Bundy discusses possible environmental stresses that could have driven “the killer” to commit the crimes when he says, “You might be talking about conditions even after environmental stresses we’ve talked about. Sexual stimuli in the environment that he may be paying attention to on TV, or even a highly violent, stimulating kind of movie” (Michaud & Aynesworth, 2000, p. 232). Bundy admitted that part of his external stresses stemmed from the violence that watched on television in addition to the pornographic videos that he would see that depicted sexual violence. This would cause him to try to enact his own fantasies of sexual violence.
Nurture. Hickock suffering a physical injury that affected his frontal lobe and skewered his personality and judgement. On the other hand, Smith experienced a traumatic childhood that affected his mental health and with it being detrimental to not only him, but the society as a whole as it gave rise to his criminal behaviours. In Smith’s case it can be argued that his lawlessness is the result of embracing “causes that they could use as vehicles in their search for excitement, power, and conquest.” (Psychology Today.) Furthermore, Smith’s mental instability is proven in his confession where he said, “They [the Clutters] never hurt me.
“Just as the next blow was coming, Ender reached up with both hands, snatched the boy by his wrist, and then pulled down on the arm, hard.”() Card and his somewhat applaudable idea of power did not view it sufficient enough for Ender to request the aid of an adult. But did envision Ender reinforcing the agony brought upon him, promulgating his power in such a way he experiences yet another unintended consequence. “…the boy was feeling exactly the pain Ender had meant him to feel…I am Peter. I’m just like him. And Ender hated himself.”() Virtually identical to the emotional consequence Ender formerly suffered from Stilson, delineates his sentiments regarding Bernard; Card not developing on his idea in the slightest, keeping Ender’s own hatred of himself and the potential individual he apparently mocks

Prometheus’s punishment upsets and pains him. He also calls the punishment “shameful” multiple times over the course of the text (5, 16, 36). Prometheus clearly seems to deeply regret the effects of his actions. Prometheus adds that despite his incredible foreknowledge, “Nevertheless, I did not expect such a punishment” (11). His knowledge of the future still did not enable him to understand the full extent of his punishment.

The question being asked is if Nick Carraway an honest narrator. This question is being asked due to mixed emotions of this particular narrator. At times it feels like Nick is holding back his honest opinion because he doesn 't want to hurt anyone or just because Nick doesn 't want to say the harsh truth. This affects the story at times such as Nick knowing about Tom 's mistress and never telling Daisy about her. Which in the end resulted in a very unfitting demise for Gatsby and Myrtle.
On the other hand, in “Being Prey” Val survived the crocodile attack and learns from the mistakes she makes. For instance, in “Sound of Thunder,” Can’t we take it back…Can’t we- “He did not move…he waited…he heard Travis shift his rifle, click the safety catch, and raise the weapon. There was a sound of thunder,” (pg.88). Lastly, in “Being Prey,” “In the end, I was found in time and survived…The glow has slowly faded, but some of that new gratitude for life endures,” (pg.95). These quotes confirm that the plots in both selections are different because even though that Eckels had learned from his mistakes, he was still murdered by Travis.
Another example of his mental disturbance affecting his life appeared when he was an adult. He was convinced that his house owners were part of the demon conspiracy. Berkowitz later moved into another apartment but was still controlled by the demons in his mind. This evidence makes it obvious that David Berkowitz experienced profound mental brokenness, no doubt embedded in his genes.
Me and Nick would find our way to the safest place to be on campus. If we find other survivals. We would help them out and be in our survival group. It might be hard finding things we might need. We would make a rule book for surviving in the Zombie Apocalypse and make copies.
