Why is it important to learn statistics in the study of Psychology?
Compare the criteria of the scientific method with everyday decision-making. In what ways is the scientific method superior? Is it inferior in any way? Can it blind us into thinking it is the only way to gather and interpret data? From your research or experience, provide an example to support your answer, and respond substantively to at least two of your classmates’ responses.

She concluded that “the statistical analyses prove that most working women would rather be at home.” What are the statistical issues with this conclusion?
