 Behaviorism Psychology



        The flow of Behaviorism Psychology was first discovered in Russia and developed by John B. Watson, an American psychologist with his paper entitled "Psychology as the Behaviorist Views It" and published in 1913.

        Watson proposed a shift from radical thought to the development of psychology based on consciousness and mental processes. Watson supports observable, visible behavior as the only reasonable subject for psychological science.


        Behaviorism is a school in psychology that only studies real, open behavior that can be measured objectively, this school studies human actions not from consciousness, but only observes actions and behavior that are based on reality.

        Behaviorism psychology emphasizes more on external forces that come from the environment, they argue that humans are flexible victims, can be formed from the environment that determines their behavior.

        Behaviorism views that when humans are born, basically humans do not bring any talent. Humans will develop based on the stimulus received from the surrounding environment. A bad environment will produce bad people, a good environment will produce good people.

According to John B. Watson



        Behaviorism is a school in psychology that only studies real, open behavior that can be measured objectively.

        John B. Watson argues that Behaviorism is a school in psychology whose behavior must be an element of the single subject of psychology. Behaviorism is a revolutionary school, strong and influential, and has deep historical roots. Behaviorism was born as a reaction to introspectionism (which analyzes the human psyche based on subjective reports) and also psychoanalysis (which talks about the invisible subconscious). John conducted experiments on the condition of yoning in children, as a result of Pavlov's influence. using a baby as a test object given a drink from a bottle. Before the bottled drink is given, the bell is rung first, and this is done repeatedly. John's steps came to the conclusion that in babies a conditioned response is formed even though they are not given a drink from a bottle, the baby will still show mouth movements such as squeezing a pacifier from a bottle.

This theory is seen as simplifying the complexities of human life drives. This theory is difficult to explain a person's relationship to self-actualization or also the need for religion. This theory is unable to explain the urge that Muslims have to get the pleasure of Allah SWT. This theory will not be able to explain human needs in Islamic teachings it is believed that humans have a tendency to be religious (fitrah).

          The concept of Psychoanalysis emphasizes the influence of the past so that many people criticize it, because there is pessimism in every effort to develop human self.

        The flow of Humanistic Psychology Abraham H. Maslow and Carl Ransom Rogers highly values ​​personal uniqueness, subjective appreciation, freedom, responsibility, and especially the ability to self-actualize in each individual.
