❤️Rhesus Macaque❤️This little monkey lives at one beautiful place called Sri Lanka , and some time ago one really interesting theory was made that is applicable to most of us - humans ..., or I wish it that way 😊... Psychologist called Harry Harlow was observing their behavior and guess what he came with ? ...‼️He separated infant monkeys from their mothers a few hours after birth, then arranged for the young animals to be “raised” by two kinds of surrogate monkey mother machines, both equipped to dispense milk. One mother was made out of bare wire mesh. The other was a wire mother covered with soft terry cloth. Harlow’s first observation was that monkeys who had a choice of mothers spent far more time clinging to the terry cloth surrogates, even when their physical nourishment came from bottles mounted on the bare wire mothers. This suggested that infant love was no simple response to the satisfaction of physiological needs. Attachment was not primarily about hunger or thirst. It could not be reduced to nursing.‼️... Little monkeys needed LOVE ❤️❤️❤️...
