However, many situations call for complex behaviors that have multiple component responses. - This is called behavioral chain Examples of Behavioral Chains: When you want a piece of chewing gum: 1. Reach into your pocket 2. Pull out the pack of gum 3. Pull a single stick out of the pack 4. Unwrap the piece, and 5. Put the gum into your mouth.
