Psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour and mental process. According to Watson, behaviour is anything a person or animal does. It is an organism's response to any external or internal stimulus. The S-O-R model is used to represent behaviour. 'S' stands for the stimulus i.e., any physical condition that gives rise to a response. 'O's stands for the organism. 'R' stands for response i.e., reaction of an organism to a given stimulus.

People show different responses to the same stimulus for e.g., If the teacher announces that she is going to conduct a revision test (stimulus), the students in the class(organism) will show different reactions(response). Some may feel excited as they have studied, others will be worried as they are unprepared, others will not be bothered at all.
