Difference between Instinct and Learned Behavior?

Answer

There are many differences between instincts and learned behavior. One example of an instinct is knowing that you have to go to the bathroom, it is just a feeling you get. Learned behavior is learning that you need to use the toilet to go to the bathroom. This comes into play when potty training a child. They know they have to go to the bathroom, so they automatically go in their diaper. When they are ready to be potty trained, they learn over a period of time that they need to use the toilet. That is an example of instinct and learned behavior.
