Measurement in Psychology: Conceptual Analysis and Synthesis Revisited
2013 (English)In: Journal of Physics : Conference Series, ISSN 1742-6596, Vol. 459, no 1, 012001- p.Article in journal, Meeting abstract (Other academic) Published
The imagined existences of "quantity" in psychology is a prerequisite for measurement. Any person (researcher or subject) may imagine homogeneous concepts as quantities, for example, (perceived) redness, loudness or heaviness of different kinds of objects or events. Conversely, heterogeneous concepts may be merged to imagined quantities such as intelligence or personality, which both are constructed from agreed upon sets of theoretical concepts. Measurement in physics, psychophysics and psychology will be contemplated, comparatively.
