Not everyone responds effectively to positive reinforcement and the other three aren’t always violent processes, but yes… occasionally some people will use pain stimuli as part of that process *shrug* Ironically, laying on the positive reinforcement too much can actually result in behaviour that you’ve been actively working to reduce/eliminate through other means (e.g. spoilt brats).
