Type of psycological reinforcement humans respond best to?

    So what kind of psycological reinforcement/behavioral conditioning do humans respond the best to? Eg. Positive/Negative reinforment and other techniques.

    I don't think there's an answer for that question. Every person behaves uniquely and as far as I know every person responds to various types of conditioning differently.

    Whole chapters on this are written in psychology textbooks (and probably whole textbooks). There's no simple answer other than "it depends".
