5. As you start, look at the heading and ask “What is this about?”
6. Look at the layout for clues (bolded words? Italics?)

VERY observable, VERY upfront and can be tested. (Psychodynamic is more about
the abstract mind)
Focuses on behavior…forget the mind.
Discusses how behavior may change under different conditions. (Does an animal
become more aggressive when stressed? When scared?, etc.)
