Yes! Instant gratification is the best!
Do I buy these $100 shoes?

Albert Bandura supported the idea that behavior is influenced by the interaction between people's traits and social situations. Through reciprocal determinism, our behavior is influenced by the environment and personal factors, developing our personality and how we create and react to events.
Carl Rogers supported the idea that people are basically good and have potential for healthy personal growth unless the environment inhibits it. Genuineness, acceptance (unconditional positive regard), and empathy are key to positively grow as a person. We also develop a self concept through how we expect and percieve the world and ourselves.
Sigmund Freud supported the theory that personality is derived from unconscious motives and conflicts. The Id strives to immediately satisfy drives, the Superego provides reasoning and standards for decisions, and the Ego is the conscious, realistic personality.
