CAUSALLY ORIENTATED RESEARCH

Construct irrelevance? 
Cause is a construct.
Can’t manipulate variables like ADHD 
With
random error :-//
 correlation occurs – so
measure coefficient from the data.
Survey? 
People fill out what is in their head,
not on the page
…data is unreliable
 
Scaling messes with distribution where 
you have 
small 
numbers
 
 Self report inventory is completely useless –
 perfectionism instrument? Effectively useless
->  misinformation
&
imperfect predictions 
always 
raise 
concerns 
about 
causal reality
 
Check internal & external
validity;
Who am I going to convince?
 
There’s no plausible alternative…
360 degree 
averages out feedback, 
thus unreliable.
Throw it out.
Variability,
malfunction
(impossible to eliminate culture)
 
People want to predict and control 
the outcome 
at the end of the day.
Confirm self reports:
Interpretive study would give better
 measures
