Reciprocal Determinism

Can someone please explain reciprocal determinism and give a few examples?

This model states that our personalities are a dynamic combination of three factors. The inborn traits/temperaments we have; the environment which gives us feedback and the consequences of our behavior. So, there is no one static cause; we change as a result of dynamic interactions between the three.

Here are some examples
