In terms of Applied Behaviorism, the presentation of a stimulus immediately following behavior will increase or maintains that behavior. What is wrong with this proposition?

B  Assuming that the “reinforcements” are powerful enough for the employee and delivered contingent upon the behavior, this is technically not reinforcement because the “goodies” didn’t immediately follow the behavior.
