    No, there is an undertone in your posts that's...let's just say... old school.

    Such a bizarre thing to say. And a very limited understanding of a country in transition.

    Ah, I see. I'm an old school black racist? A black dude that hates niggers? Is that it? You incapable of presenting any real retort, so I must be a racist. Yes?

    Transition to what? Bad to worse? From the frying pan into the fire? Shot at and missed, **** at and hit?

    So you threw up strawman articles that ignore the progress the end of Apartheid made?

    Texmaster, as is common knowledge around here, I am a therapist and have been for 20 years. You are absolutely wrong. In psychology, therapist rely on interviews to asses individuals in therapy. In research, questionairres give less subjectivity and are more accurate. There is a big difference between providing therapy and doing research. I've done quite a bit of both. The two are very different modalities requiring difference assessment tools. You are absolutely wrong on this.



    Completely false. You obviously have never studied or known any experts in body language. It is absolutely key in a psychological evaluation.

    1 on 1 face time is absolutely essential when studying the psychological profile of a person not to mention their honesty or dishonesty on a subject.
    I, myself, teach techniques of indicating body language and am one of the best at this that I know. It is a vital tool in psychological assessment. Thing is, that is NOT what we are talking about. We are talking about psychological research a different issue entirely. In this, objectivity is key; observing body language is subjective.

    Again, you are absolutely wrong on this.



    Read it again. The majority of their conclusions are cited by footnote of other studies.

    Hand 1991, Patterson, 1995, Osterweil 1991
    You read it wrong. What they said was that their results are similar and confirmed the result of the people above who conducted similar studies. So, know, you are incorrect about this, also.



    You are going to need to explain this point of view.

    A questionnaire filled out unsupervised away from any control, leaves open all matter of outside influences from group think to someone else filling out the parts especially for children.

    When you question someone directly you can see facial twitches, moving around in a chair, uncomfortable subjects, and slew of other non verbal communication you cannot get with a questionnaire.

    Why do you think juries want to see witnesses? Why not just fill out a questionnaire? Why is it a requirement of law?

    Why do shrinks have offices? Why not simply evaluate someone based on a questionnaire?



    To believe this is to throw out everything we know and understand about body lanaguage and its effect not to mention allowing the very real possibility of group answers and group think when the questionnaire is filled out in an uncontrolled environment.
    I think I already did explain this to you. Different techniques are used when making a psychological assessment, verses doing a research study. In the latter, for the methodology to be valid, one must eliminate, as much as possible, all subjectivity. That is why, in order to get credible results, researchers will spend a huge amount of time developing questionnaires and measurement tools that can yield accurate results. This is FAR more objective than interviews. Interviews yield too much subjectivity from both the subject and the interviewer.

    A psychological assessment is a completely different matter. Measurement tools can be helpful to assist, and I often use them, but the interview yields much more information. But, remember, this is not research. It's assessment.
