2) Negative reinforcement (removing something to increase the likelihood that the behavior will be repeated in the future)

3) Positive punishment (adding something to decrease the likelihood that the behavior will be repeated in the future)

4) Negative punishment (removing something to decrease the likelihood that the behavior will be repeated in the future)

 

For example (Don’t use these!):

1) Positive reinforcement: If I want to increase the likelihood that my dog will go to the bathroom outside I give him a treat (adding something pleasant) when he successfully goes to the bathroom outside. This fits because I am adding something pleasant to increase the likelihood of the behavior.

2) Negative reinforcement: A child cleans their room to stop the nagging of their mother. Thus increasing the likelihood they will clean their room in the future to avoid the unpleasant nagging. This fits because in the example the unpleasant parent nagging is removed and the likelihood of room cleaning is increased.

3) Positive punishment: An extra chore is added when you fail to complete all the chores on your weekly chore list. This fits because it involves the addition of something unpleasant to decrease the likelihood of behavior.

4) Negative punishment: Your mother takes away your car privileges after you receive a speeding ticket. This fits because she has taken away something unpleasant to decrease the likelihood of behavior (in this case speeding).

NOTE: I have only provided one example for each. YOU NEED TO PROVIDE TWO EXAMPLES OF EACH!
