Positive feedback loops are self-reinforcing. The more you have, the quicker it increases. Positive feedback loops generate growth and amplify changes. In the example below, 15% of the amount in an account is added to the account each year.
Negative feedback loops are self-correcting. The more you have, the less it increases. Negative feedback loops drive systems toward equilibrium and balance. In the example below, 100% of the volume of a pond leaks out of the pond during the course of 1 year.
