What we mean by “integrated” is that the position seeks concepts that can help in the achievement of all aspects of this goal at once, and with both precision and scope. Parenthetically, influence is a better word than control (even though “prediction and control” is a more common phrase) because control also refers to the elimination of behavioral variability in an absolute sense. To accomplish a particular end, some forms of behavioral variability may be undesirable, but that does not mean that action without variability in an absolute sense is better understood.

In further training, the subject may be taught that given the stimulus A1 and another set of comparisons, C1, C2, and C3, to pick C1. The stimuli that are incorrect would be correct in the presence of other samples. Given stimulus A2 and the comparisons B1, B2, and B3, for example, the subject would be taught to pick B2, not B1 or B3.
