    Default Getting to conclusions

    Is it so that some forms teories before they know all the data?

    And some does not form it untill they got a lot of data?

    Does anyone have a link on this that is not MBTI related?

    ofc MBTI related links are ok but im not needing it.

    Your two choices are nearly the same. The only question you seem to pose is how much data is necessary before a hypothesis can be made. I think the answer to that would be it is relative to the scope of the question.

    I would assume that NTs (and most others whether they realize it or not) in generally would use the scientific method.

    2. Question
    3. Research
    4. Hypothesis
    5. Experimentation
    6. Conclusion

    How about forming a teory before you go looking for proof vs finding evidence for something and then forming a teory.

    @MatsNorway I think your confusing hypothesis and theory.

    Theory: a coherent group of tested general propositions, commonly regarded as correct, that can be used as principles of explanation and prediction for a class of phenomena: Einstein's theory of relativity. Synonyms: principle, law, doctrine.
    Hypothesis: a proposition, or set of propositions, set forth as an explanation for the occurrence of some specified group of phenomena, either asserted merely as a provisional conjecture to guide investigation (working hypothesis) or accepted as highly probable in the light of established facts.

    I think that depends on your experience in the context of the field you are talking about.

    Or pure dumb luck works too.


    People that jump over little data are called impulsive; people that wait for too much data, conservative. Which stereotype do you wanna be?

    Its not that simple. It depends on risks and the size/importance of the matters.

    I guess im confident in my evaluations.

    I don`t like the wording you use btw. impulsive might be the word but conservative is definitely not the opposite.

    I piece things together, makes connections, and think of the what if. My brain may jump from one idea to another, and there is a connection between these ideas but so an outsider, it's hard to see how that conclusion was found. It's not completely random, there is a lot of thought that goes behind it. I also struggle to explain when asked.

    A lot of possibilities flood my mind, it takes me a little while to narrow down which one is the most possible conclusion. The answer may not be as straightforward as one may think depending on the situation. It could be based on the situation, or other things that I know about said problem/topic. Even when I come to a conclusion, I have an alternate possibility in mind.

    I form a theory with whatever data I have, and as I gain more data, I transform the theory all at the same time. So you can say that my reality is in constant flux. I also am skilled good at filling in holes within the data myself, so I can expand my understanding of something beyond, just to see what is there.

    Are you using "theory" in the informal sense or are you referring to scientific theory?

    If you are using it in the informal sense, then I think what you are referring to here is the distinction between inductive and deductive reasoning.
