Hi,

An assumption of the behaviorist approach is that all behaviour is learnt from the environment, if that is the case than why do we have 'unconditioned responses' which are basically 'innate'? I am so confused.... how can we have innate responses if the behaviourist approach assumes that all behaviour (i.e. responses) are learnt.

This is so confusing and annoying and giving me a massive headache.

Thanks in advance for any help

What's the confusion? You pretty much summed up the issue of the behaviourist approach, which is what that question is asking - not for support of the argument but contradictions

Oh.. I didn't realize it was an issue with the approach, it wasn't in the evaluation section of my textbook so I assumed the error was in my understanding. Thank you for your help, I almost went insane with confusion. lol
