Abstract

1. Normal monkeys subjected to increasingly difficult choices between nearly equally desired food at first oscillate in their responses and then develop neurotic disturbances similar to those induced by aversive conflicts.2. Non-aversive stresses applied to monkeys previously subjected to aversive experiences accentuate their neuroses.3. These phenomena may be comparable to the aberrations of behavior in human beings likewise faced with difficult decisions between equally desirable but mutually exclusive strivings.
