The EO is a powerful independent variable and can be manipulated to change a variety of human behaviors. It is possible that further research on the EO could lead to many theoretical and practical improvements in behavior analysis. Michael’s classification system of the different types of EOs serves as a guide for research, and for ways to incorporate the EO into typical functional analyses and behavior intervention programs. Michael’s refinement of the EO concept will facilitate this important development in our field.
