Single Trial Learning

The subject of "single trial learning" came up the other day between me and some friends. Single trial learning is where the person (or animal) tries something, makes a mistake, realizes it, and figures out, without help or guidance in how to "fix" the mistake on the next try. I happened to catch a wonderful example of this with Pixel today. (Besides, it's so darned cute! )

Pixel certainly showed herself as a "one trial learner" in the following two videos. Pixel is VERY attached to her "Purple Monkey". I keep him in her crate during the day, so that Kodi doesn't get at him and tear him up. Up until now, I've just leaned the crate door to, without latching it. Kodi would never THINK of opening it up, even if it were on the ground, let alone stacked on another crate.

This morning, Pixel opened the crate, got the toy and jumped out. It was cute, so I wanted to get a video of her doing it. So I put the monkey back in and closed, but didn't latch, the door. You'll see on the first video, that she gets it with no problem, but she didn't get the door open far enough, so it hit her as she jumped in.

I put it back again, to see what she'd do. (planning to catch the door if she couldn't get it open far enough) No problem! SHE wasn't going to let that door hit her again! In the second video,you can see her VERY carefully and deliberately pushing it open, and watching to make sure it's going to stay open enough for her to get in. I think that's pretty amazing!

She is so cute and obviously not dumb by any means. That really shows her learning from the first time. She looked pretty proud of herself too. So, so cute.

That was quite fascinating to see, thanks for sharing! Obviously a brilliant little girl!

But, now, how do you keep Purple Monkey safe from brother, once Pixel frees him from the crate?

I see a frustrated Pixel in your future! Sometimes it is so hard to have brothers! Ha!

I think Kodi finds HER pretty frustrating at times, so I think it evens out!
