The formation of new analyzers depends on sthenic consequences.
Some potential chains of reflexes and analyzers have not been established because these were not followed by sthenic experiences, whereas other chains of reflexes and analyzers were formed because of sthenic experiences, but disappeared when the changed environmental conditions led to asthenic experiences.
Enchmen (1920) considered the formation of conditioned reflexes as depending on the outcome; that is, sthenic consequences furthered the establishment of conditioned reflexes, whereas asthenic consequences eliminated the conditioned reflexes.
