It runs quite smoothly at each trial, but the intensity of approach behavior as well as of food consumption will be reduced when satiety is approached. 2 General activity increases with increasing intensity of the central motive state. 3 The central motive state activates specific behavior patterns. Supposedly, these behavior patterns should be related to the origin of the central motive state. If, again, food deprivation is the cause for the activity of the central motive state, behavior patterns likely to be activated are those related to search for food and eating.

An automatic response occurs as a consequence of a specific pattern of stimulation, whether we want it or not, and without any purpose. An erection in response to a beautiful student during a lecture has certainly no purpose, except for reminding us of the poena reciproca, the humiliation of not having control over our organism with our will, as so eloquently exposed by Saint Augustine. The preceding discussion is applicable to both human and non-human sexual incentive motivation. However, as repeatedly pointed out in Chapter 1, the human may replace an external incentive stimulus with the mental representation of such a stimulus.

There is no reason to believe that this anecdotical evidence has any correspondence in reality.
