The effect of three positive reinforcement conditions operant conditioning, probability learning, and no reinforcement on perceptions of success by subjects participating in a complex decision making task was investigated. It was found that either reinforcement minipulation produced greater perceptions of success, and that perceptions of success tended to increase over time. The results suggest that variables which have been previously shown to be associated with success manipulations may also vary with reinforcement.
