"Learning would be exceedingly laborious, not to mention hazardous, if people had to rely solely on the effects of their own actions to inform them what to do." - Albert Bandura, 1977
Bandura's social learning theory suggests that people can learn though observation, including direct instruction, modeling, and imitation.
