Rule Governed Behavior and Determined Behavior

Rule Governed Behavior and Determined Behavior

Question

What is the difference between Rule Governed Behavior and Determined Behavior?

Answer

While I am unfamiliar with these terms, here is my best guess.

Modal operators of necessity in particular are our unconscious rules. We talk about having to do certain things to get a certain result, get on with other people or just get through the day.

Examining our should’s, must’s and have to’s can uncover many of our personal rules, but also the rules we have for other people. I can’t think of any that aren’t away froms.

Modal operators of possibility on the other hand are more about our choices and how we can determine the direction of our lives. I can, I will, I am going to, I want to, I’d like to. They are mostly towards.

Modal operators are all about our “modes of operating”.
