Generalization refers to a process within operant and Classical Conditioning, where a Conditioned Response (CR) starts occurring in response to the presentation of other, similar stimuli, not just the Conditioned Stimulus (CS). For example, a dog is trained to sit (CR) when you give the command, “sit” (CS). Soon after that, the dog might sit when you say “hit”, “bit”, and “kick”. In this case, the CR (sitting) is not only done to the CS (the command, “sit”) but also to commands that are similar.
