The want principle!!!  It would be a strong want!!!

There's negatives and positive draws, and negative and positive
reinforcement.


negative ---->  (pain, rejection)
positive <----  (pleasure, covet)

negative with positive reinforcement <---- (necessary pain like cough
medicine)
positive with negative reinforcement ----> (unnecessary want like the
							light socket)


where ----> means to go away
where <---- means to go toward
