Delivering Positive Reinforcement?

I'm always amazed when I check the ratio of likes to dislikes on our little group effort of a sync-head video and find the ratio is a pretty consistent 4 to 1 ratio.
Finding balance between positive and negative consequences
"Clients often ask us to define the desired balance between positive and negative consequences when shaping or sustaining behavior.
Research on the words we use supports using a minimum ratio or four positive comments to one negative comment (a 4:1 ratio), but there is more to it than that.
When looking for specific behavior change, the tendency is to provide feedback on behavior that we don’t want versus focusing and reinforcing behavior we do want.
The 4:1 ratio should be used as a guide to ensure enough positive reinforcement is being delivered to get the behavior you want.
The more you can find and reinforce behavior that you want, the more you will get what you want and need in supporting behaviors in yourself and others that lead to good outcomes.
Making specific and positive comments to others about their performance is considered reinforcement only if those behaviors occur more often in
the future."
What does the ratio 4 to 1 mean?
Fore to one?-)
Don't you just love synch?
FORE!!! ... to one?-)
