-Drive reduction theory was introduced in 1930s by an eminent American psychologist [[http://​www.newworldencyclopedia.org/​entry/​Clark_L._Hull|Clark Hull]], whose works were **influenced by other behaviorists** like [[http://​www.ivanpavlov.com/​|Ivan Pavlov]], [[http://​www.muskingum.edu/​~psych/​psycweb/​history/​thorndike.htm|Edward Thorndike]] and [[http://​www.muskingum.edu/​~psych/​psycweb/​history/​tolman.htm|Edward Tolman]], but also by [[http://​hr.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Charles_Darwin|Charles Darwin]]'​s theory of evolution.(([[http://​www.lifecircles-inc.com/​Learningtheories/​behaviorism/​clarkhull.html|Cooper,​ S. Clark Hull Drive Reduction Theory. Theories of Learning in Educational Psychology.]])) Hull's theory was at the time very influential. As a general learning theory it tried to explain **all behavior** and the likelihood of its appearance mathematically using a **set of formula**. Another area of Hull's interest was hypnosis research. He conducted a number of laboratory experiments in which he finally showed that hypnosis and sleep are two completely separate states.(([[http://​books.google.hr/books?​id=6eK_bwAACAAJ|Hull, Clark H.
