ABSTRACT
A definition of S-O-R theory, is presented. It was proposed by U.S. psychologist Robert Sessions Woodworth. This is a change to the stimulus-response and (S-R) formula proposed by Woodworth. He opposed behaviourism to the degree that it neglected the organism in behaviour. Therefore he introduced O for the organism into the S-R formula to produce S-O-R.
