Operant conditioning is also described as Skinnerian conditioning since behaviorist B.F. Skinner originally characterized it. According to Skinner, who was a behaviorist, examining one's own ideas and intentions is not actually important to understanding behavior. Rather, he advocated focusing solely on the observable, outside factors that influence people's actions.   In order to fully explain complicated human behavior, Skinner believed that classical conditioning was simply too simplistic. He held that examining the reasons behind an activity and its effects was the best method to comprehend behavior. He referred to this strategy as “operant conditioning.”
