When stepping on the scale and weighing in at 160 pounds, the person becomes aware of a discrepancy or gap between a current and desired state. Applying control theory, that individual may act in one of four ways. The person could increase weight loss efforts by eating less and healthier, exercising more, and sleeping more to shrink the GPD by moving the current state closer to the desired one (Response 1: Increase effort to alter performance to reduce the discrepancy).

The test step involves comparing the current behavior with the standard or goal. The operate step encompasses any follow-up actions used to reduce a detected discrepancy in the test phase. That step is followed by another test to again gauge the discrepancy between current performance and the standard. If the discrepancy has been eliminated and behavior is consistent with the standard, an exit from the control loop follows. ).
