Examples of Insight Learning?

When an animal learns how to do something new by applying what it knows or they solve a problem it is insight learning. It is learning that uses reason to form conclusions, judgements, or inferences to solve a problem. Insight learning uses reason or trials that occur mentally instead of trial and error to learn. Examples of insight learning are found in studies of chimpanzees done by Wolfgang Kohler. He placed a banana out of reach of chimpanzees and watched as they tried to get the food.
