History of Research Results
In the above diagrams, we can recognize the three stages through which the research developed over time.
Stage 1. The Research was in a descriptive phase. In this stage the idea's or hypotheses were generated for further research.
Stage 2. The Research came in a experimental phase. Hypotheses where stated, conditions were set and confirmation was found. However, on the interpretative side there where some problems to overcome.
Stage 3. The Research reached a decisive state. Clear differentiation between conditions and straightforward interpretation. The results of stage 1 and stage 2 were based on mutiple subjects, the stage 3 results are based on individual data. And that's what the historic ultimate goal of scientific psycholocical research demanded: an individual diagnostic instrument that produces facts.
This approach will be called "The Calis-Sterenborg Paradigm".
