-Philosophy of language by Wittgenstein
-Complicated experimental design leads to misinterpretation of the experiment by the participant
-Mother tongue (explanation of the experiment by the experimenter and understanding by the participant)
-Boring experimental design
-Mental health and mood swing of the participant
-The intentionality of the participant for participating in the experiment: Money/interest/…other factors
-Do we assume all participants ( people to be) ethical and actively participate in the experiment?
There is no way to quantify these uncertainties and this might be the nature of psychological studies. But are these studies even important?
I might be asking the wrong question but I can’t look past this.
Curiosity is not a convincing factor for me because the nature of truth is so volatile here.
Reproducibility as a tool could be a solution…
Would like to know alternative opinion on this
