Psychology Behavior Models

Behavior Models
      Dr, B.J. Fogg at Stanford University has developed his Fogg Behavior Model (FBN) that helps to identify what  conditions assist people in changing patterns of their behavior. It also suggests possible areas that frequently prove to be obstacles that deter an individual from making changes in their behavior.

      When three elements - Motivation, Ability, and a Trigger converge, it is possible to achieve a change in behavior.  Each element has sub components:
  • Core Motivators (Motivation) - Sensation, Anticipation, and Social Cohesion. Each of these has two sides:
    • Pleasure/Pain
    • Hope/Fear
    • Social Acceptance/Rejection
  • Simplicity Factors (Ability) - There are two paths to increasing ability. 1.) The first path is  to train people so they have more skills and the ability to successfully perform the target behavior.  2.) The second path is to reduce the necessary skill to perform the target behavior. By simplifying the task, the easier it will be for them to successfully accomplish the necessary tasks.

    • Money
    • Physical Efforts

    • Non-routine
  • Triggers - Internal and External triggers are usually fairly simple things that encourage us to perform more complicated tasks or actions.
    • Facilitating events
    • Sparking interest or desire
    • Signal or Cue
