What is Law of Multiple Responses?


Thorndike’s Law of Multiple Responses states that when one response does not bring satisfaction, it will initiate a new response. For this reason, the animal  goes on producing responses until some response brings satisfaction. The cat in Thorndike’s puzzle box claws bites and pushes until it pulls the loop to open the door. The cat, thus, unfolds its stock of responses and tries out one response after another. If one response fails, and the animal sits passively, it would die of starvation. The release of multiple responses has an adaptive significance as it ensures organism’s survival.
