Behaviors
From B.F. Skinner, Beyond Freedom and Dignity--
Genuine positive reinforcement can be misused because the sheer quantity of reinforcers is not proportional to the effect on behavior.

Reinforcement is usually only intermittent, and the schedule of reinforcement is more important than the amount received. Certain schedules generate a great deal of behavior in return for very little reinforcement, and the possibility has naturally not been overlooked by would-be controllers (34).
