His intention at the time was to become a fiction writer, but he grew disillusioned with his skills and took up psychology after being inspired by John B. Watson's book Behaviorism.

B.F. Skinner returned to Harvard and received a Ph.D. in psychology in 1931. He will become a tenured professor here in 1958 and remains for the rest of his life.
