Welcome to the GetTheSkinney Wiki

The fun facts and info on the Psychologist Burrhus Fredric Skinner's life, views and inventions.

The GetTheSkinney wiki is based on Burrhus Frederic (B.F.) Skinner, an American psychologist, behaviorist, author, inventor and social philosopher. he was the Edgar Pierce Professor of Psychology at Harvard University from 1958 up until his retirement in 1974.

This Blog's main goal is to teach people about B. F. Skinner and what he did in his life along with the many contributions he made to society. Everything from his theories and experiments such as The Skinner Box to his inventions like The Pigeon Guided Missile, Skinner consistently made interesting and insightful pieces of work whether they became widely known or not.
