From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mutual Operant Conditioning is the relationship between an animal owner or trainer that turns to the exclusive benefit of the animal rather than the trainer. Marine biologists have mentioned that they often feel they are the trainees rather than the trainers.

This is a behaviorist or semiological perspective that posits total operant conditioning from all stimuli in the environment. Mutual Operant Conditioning, in simple terms, is adapting to an environment occupied by other entities capable of changing their behavior based on your behavior.

The conditioning typically occurs on a subconscious level. Symptoms of how we adapt to the presence of other people or animals can also be called "Creeping Normality" or "Creeping Normalcy."
