science is not perfect. someone can be in a state of mind and you will fit it in the group you think he should be. Without an honest conversation someone can be misjudged.

WAIT A MINUTE! Did I just get trolled by patchgrabber`s ignorance? or was that ignorace genuine...hmmm...oh well. The next best thing to being right is successful argumentation; can`t argue with that...to each his own reality...science`s main goal is to alleviate ignorance, so whatever really is most true always shines through (<-- See what I did there? ;) ) and maybe ol` patch is right after all...the truth is not always comfortable or pleasant to its discoverers...

Here`s my two cents (free, don`t worry, I don`t mind): The scientific method is observation, theory regarding observation, test of the theory, revision/abandonment/confirmation of the theory, and back to step 1. So long as there is structured observation, theories about the observation that can be tested and good interpretation of the data (i.e. not biased) it`s science. While many aspescts of the brain and thought are subjective, there are objective ways of at least determining the practical implications and observable signs to measure. The trick is finding the right ones, ones that can be measured, like the pain scale. We can`t measure pain, but we can keep track of its effects on significantly large experimental groups. While one person may fudge the test, most will be honest that will show in the data. Not every experiment or scientist gets this right, but to disparage a peer reviwed theory/experiment simply because of its area of study seems rash. That`s more than 2cents. ;)

Also, the sub-fields such as neuropsychology and others focus their studies on things so specific that they aren`t truthfully studying behavior or mental processes anymore, but biochemistry and physiology for the most part, and making inferences on how these biochemical and physiological processes influence mental processes and behavior of individuals. I.E., they aren`t talking about `psychology` anymore, for the most part.

...Otherwise, you`re stuck using inductive logic, which does not necessarily require each prior statement or assertion to prove successive statements true. That is, you don`t have to procedurally prove each assertion true to make further assertions based on prior assertions. Karl Popper proposed that falsifiability is a solution to problems of inductive logic.

An example is, you observe a swan that is white. You then propose that all swans are white. You have not proven that every observable swan is white, and possibly never could. You simply conjecture that due your singular observation, all possible observations in the same set will yield similar results. This kind of faulty logic is what will make you fail your chemistry and physics lab courses, but are done on a daily basis in most sub fields of psychology.

...the study is anything but. Many fields of psychology can legitimately claim to conduct and base their practices on scientific studies, but that says nothing on the basis of these scientific studies. Scientific studies alone do not constitute a science.

If there aren`t clear core theories that form the basis of the field and sub-disciplines, scientific studies aren`t being properly conducted and null hypothesis being honored, it then is impossible for the field itself to change and evolve based upon future research.

That is, even if you did scientifically sound research, it`s potential to change the field overall is low to nil, since all the prior issues and standards of practice by those in the field must first be addressed, and revolutionized. It`s important to note that the scientific studies must be based off of a sound scientific inquiry and method to start with.

"they all abide by scientific principles and methods."

Well no, not all branches of psychology strive to emulate scientific method. Hull`s theory was based on faulty methodology. Instead of scientific research being done, to create the basis of clinical therapy, the converse has most frequently been done, "experts" create new therapies/theories in their practices based upon their own assumptions and biases and then write articles on the matter to then be tested by others in the sub-fields of psychology. Anyone else see a logical falacy in this? It`s easy to "confirm" such fait accompli studies when they are introduced to the community as valid, if not assumed true... and the same procedures and set of environmental conditions used to test said therapies are followed and produce similar or the same results. The study being done after the fact to "verify" the clinical practice could be called a scientific study, but the basis of

I`m pursuing a doctorate in a field of Psychology. Your condescension toward me means little. This isn`t so much a personal battle or "extra credit" as it is dispelling myths about Psychology. I was trained in one of the top undergraduate Psychology programs in the nation among leaders in the field. It bugs me when people haven`t a clue what they`re talking about, and then they disparage the subject.
Also, I agree that it`s a social science. That being said, it doesn`t fail at "basic rigor". Unfortunately, there *are* loads of undergraduate Psychology programs that are essentially "cake majors" for people who haven`t a clue what else to do. Generally these people do not properly understand the science of psychology, and do not participate in it. They learn the history and the findings without understanding the processes leading to it. It gives Psychology a bad reputation. An unfortunate truth.

@hwkiller and patchgrabber:
Psychology is a social science. While technically called a science, it`s about as scientific as political science and economics. It`s not the same as the physical sciences, which includes biology, chemistry, and physics. When people say "science", they typically mean a physical science. So while psychology may technically be called a science, it`s not the same kind of science as what most people consider science.

..to shape the environment to our needs. Social Psychologist explore how people influence others, how people relate to others, and how people think about others. There are so many more fields, and they all abide by scientific principles and methods.
It`s not "just biology," even if that is the mechanism through which cognition operates. There are other factors that are just as important to explore.

@Patchgrabber,
I really don`t "agree to disagree" in this case, because you are spouting off nonsense about Psychology.
I`m not sure where you learned about psychology or how credible that program is, but I have my doubts about it.
To say Psychology is "really just biology" is basically the most reductionist statement you could make. Biology is a factor, for sure, but is not "all Psychology can and should be."
Clinicians *do* use empirically verified interventions and models. Most of these models incorporate a biological-psychological-sociological structure to conceptualize the problem and create a solution.
Biology is really 1/3 of the equation (figuratively speaking).
Neuroscientists explore the biology of the mind. Cognitive-behavioralists explore learning and other functions on a non-biological level. Developmental Psychologists explore how cognition changes across the lifetime. Human factors Psychologists explore the best way t

And like I said before, neuropsych, cognitive etc. are really just biology with some EE for good measure. Psychology itself is not science, merely applied statistics, and what passes for theory may be more just descriptive taxonomy and schematics.

@Patchgrabber,
The theory was proposed from his own research. The equation was more conceptual then it was literal, first of all. Second, it was well supported with a large number of studies. It wasn`t until many years later that researchers finally found results that no longer supported Hull`s theory. He proposed the theory after a large amount of observation. The theory was put to the test for nearly two decades. It was supported for the vast majority of studies. The studies that emerged which disconfirmed the theory shook the learning world, because Hull`s theory was so SUPPORTED by research previously. He revised his theory a number of times in light of research, but eventually it lost to other perspectives.
Psychology *does* honor the null hypothesis btw.
Psychology *doesn`t* assume a theory to be true without testing. Where in the world did you receive your minor? Seriously though. Psych research follows the same basic method as any other science.

Science does not assume something to be true before it can be tested and verified. Take the recent report that scientists have made neutrinos travel faster than the speed of light. We don`t implicitly assume that it`s true, because it is being tested and verified BEFORE it`s put into practice. I think it`s you who doesn`t understand what science actually is or the rules that govern it. if any idea can become clinical practice without a preliminary scientific evaluation for efficacy and safety, then psychological research can have no effect on clinical practice.

I find it amusing you cite Hull`s theory, since he was one of the strongest believers that psychology be a science. It`s not that hard to invalidate some made up equation that purportedly explains animal behaviour. It also brings up another point, that psychology does not honour the null hypothesis. Hull made up his "theory" and it was accepted as true for decades until people tried to prove it. That`s not how science works.

Our most notable Psychologists have had their theories disproven, and it`s advanced the field by leaps and bounds.

The most obvious to me is Hull`s drive theory. That was a major force in the field of learning for a long time. Throughout decades, it was tested, and eventually thought incomplete. Better theories replaced it and the process continued.

Also, self-report scales vary in their subjectivity. Statistically, it does not matter. Plus, the scales are, again, put through peer-review to ensure that it`s unbiased. Many self-report scales are *meant* to be subjective, but are quantified and analyzed. The results are as meaningful as they are intended to be.

Regardless, most Psychological research is not self-report based anyway. It`s often computerized behavioral assessment. It`s nearly always measured in terms of behavior and responses.
Again, you don`t seem to have any clue about Psychological research or its history.

@Patchgrabber,
If that statistic is true, I assure you it`s not because of bias. Studies undergo peer review to point out as much experimenter bias as possible. If anything, that statistic suggests that it`s hard to publish null results, which is true.
And what the heck are you talking about? We *primarily* work off of theory and put it to the test. I work off of a theory in my research and have found a population or domain in which it does not seem to apply.
The very fact that Psychologists must infer cognitive processes through behavioral observation and testing means that Psychology is largely based on the testing of theory.
No one said we just blindly run raw data through analysis in search of significance. A good psychologist outlines what they expect to find, given the hypothesis, and will run the analyses accordingly. If significance is not found, that is still interesting, and is thus reported. If it is found, then it is reported. This is no different.

Psychology purports to adhere to empiricism and objectivity, but multiple studies have pointed out bias whereby 91.5-97% of psychology/psychiatry studies support initial hypotheses. Uses of surveys and questionnaires is not objective, it is subjective. Also, *facepalm*, statistical significance does not mean that the data are important in practice. I can measure anything and compare the raw data. I can use multiple different post hoc tests until I find one that supports my data, but just because there is statistical significance does not mean anything in and of itself. Also, psychological research does not address and potentially falsify the core theories that define the field, which is the case with REAL science. A scientifically valid statistical result does not make psychology itself scientific. At best psychology is a soft science as are all social sciences, but I think that is pushing it.

@Patchgrabber,
1) Wasn`t really meant to be an argument. If you know what science truly is and the history of it, you would agree that Psychology (since ~1930) is a science. Psychology is the systematic study of human thought and behavior, and adheres to scientific principles such as empiricism and objectivity.
2)See above. Behaviorism and empirical movements pushed Psychology into the domain of a true science. Behaviorism could not adequately explain observations, so cognition was brought in.
3) Qualitative data is descriptive data. Quantitative data is measured data. Psychology is almost completely quantitative. In fact, many people wish there was MORE qualitative data purely for the development of new theory. In my research, for instance, I measure rxn time, the final decision (nominal data), emotionality of information viewed, recall accuracy, recognition accuracy, Likert scale ratings, future time perspective, and others.

1) If you don`t think Psychology is a science, you obviously know nothing about Psychology, or nothing about Science.

Not a cogent argument.

2) It`s a science by definition.

Again, not an argument.

3) No, it doesn`t rely primarily on "qualitative" data at all. If you think so, you haven`t done any psychology research whatsoever.

Ok, I`ll bite. What quantitative data do they use? And if you say statistics I`m going to facepalm.

4) Freud wasn`t that stupid. He didn`t have "issues with his mother." He was a biologist, primarily. He applied what he observed and knew about evolution to the development of the human psyche. His thoughts were interesting and notable *for its time*. No, we know now that he was wrong, but it`s hardly fair to say he was a crackpot from the beginning knowing as little as everyone did. Besides, his MODEL is still useful. His interpretations and theory.. that`s another story.

@PsychGeek: I got a minor in psych, and no, it is not a science. The only sub-discipline of psych that is close to science is neuropsych, and that is just a bastard child of biochemistry and psychology. Psychology relies on qualitative data for most of its research, and their methods fail at basic rigor.

Holy crap, Gerry! I`ve been saying this for years. It`s nice to hear someone else has the same opinion.

There were some great ideas in there, but most of it was nuts. I`ve always assumed the guy had issues he was hiding and came to the conclusion that if he had those hidden issues, then everyone must have those hidden issues. A greater error has never been made.
