Reward of the kiss is calculated accordaning to the man’s super goals (desire for tenderness, sexual instinct). The concepts / sub goals responsible for “Saying ‘I love you’” action is rewarded. The desirability attribute value of the concept is increased. “Saying ‘I love you’” action / sub goal becomes more desirable.
