Punishment by Stocks!

So first a little background. My CGS class and I took a trip to Williamsburg this week and I figured I would be able to get some cool photos while down there. This was one of the more innocuous ones, but after thinking on this one I actually made a connection to psychology. I believe this photo represents the behavioralism perspective of psychology. During the colonial era this was a common punishment for crimes. This negative feedback would promote the halting of bad behavior, and thus cause the altering of the vacuity to become good. This directly represents the behavioralism idea of the effect of outside influences and the lack of internal ones.
