    It depends what you mean by the field analysis.

    Well I suppose...

    Hmm...

    I'm not entirely sure why I said it that way.

    I prefer to use statistics more for prediction than for analysis. The field work (I'm assuming you meant field as opposed to armchair work) is the qualitative and statistics are quantitative. The two are connected -- they work together.

    Two different types of calculating to get the same result.

    Anyway my interpretation of the OP was that statistics were simply a quantitative echo -- not an answer -- of the inputted quality information.

    I waited patiently for the other assistant to serve his client.
    The moment he turned his attention to me the female assistant turned her attention to the woman who was standing behind me.
    She became suddenly aware of her surroundings.

    Why she had to play her little game?

    Because I am special, too.

    I've always looked at "special" and "unique" as being good things... But now that you've mentioned it, there's a dark side to that as well. No matter! We take the good and the bad. I like special...
    Yes! Bad assistant! :steam:

    well, I don't give a damn what they think or say. You're MY wildcat and you're special in a very GOOD way and don't ever let anyone make you think or believe otherwise! :steam:

    damn the human eyes of prejudice... ohm...

    oops. did we derail the thread again? apologies....I had taken 'field' to mean the group chosen to take the test, i.e., the sample group, which is what all statistics is based upon.
    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    Can you derail the derail?
    Does red obstruct red?

    Does wildcat charge?
    Never.

    Least of all the best of the best.

    Perhaps the shop assistant wasn't feeling special that day. Sometimes you knock down others to make yourself feel better. Reduction of other types to a comfort zone.

    Nocapszy's view of field as the qualitative part was interesting, I didn't read the OP that way. My own reduction.

    There is a long tradition of shop assistants who are not feeling well.

    Lastrailway and Nocapszy did not differ.
    A thing of semantics.

    You are your sister. Your sister is you.
    The place in the loci is the environment.
    It is of no account.

    There is no disagreement.
    Oh.. apparently I misread the OP then. I though you were saying that statistics cannot separate from the field.
    Or I got it wrong again?

    The statistics separate from the field.
    You got it right from the beginning.

    I really don't get it now. You didn't mean, in the OP, that statistics only reflects the field?

    Define field.
