Screaming Extinction Bursts
How to tell when your opponents are close to losing.
The louder they scream and holler, the closer they are to losing. There is a well-known phenomenon in behavioral psychology. That is, when you are extinguishing a behavior, your subject cycles through an extinction burst. This means, they get more aggressive trying to get their way.
When a child is used to getting their way, and suddenly mom and/or dad and/or nanny – does not give them their usual reward, what do they do? They scream, yell and throw a tantrum.
