WHAT ARE HABITS?
Habits are learned patterns of behavior which, as the result of constant repetition, come to be carried
out with little conscious thought. They are not instincts, which are inborn largely, or reflexes, which are
automatic responses. Habits are learned.
Most habits are acquired as the result of something pleasant following from what was originally
largely, random behavior. But habits can also learned as the result of unpleasant happening, although,
strictly speaking, these are better at suppressing behavior that at creating a habit directly. Yet another
way to in which a habit can be learned is by imitation. For instance, your peers drink, you join to keep up
with the crown.
