ABSTRACT This paper, framed into the analysis of (in) sensibility to contingencies and its implications in the analysis of verbal regulation, pretends to assess the effectiveness of several methods in order to produce breaking or change of the sensibility patterns, as well as to find attainable differential effects of automatic contingencies in two experimental tasks, using an eight university student's sample. The results show that the use of contextual cues, by means of the amplification or changes in the given rules, is the best procedure to break certain levels of insensibility. The data also show the absence of differential effects of each task contingencies.
