Research Methods in Psychology
Research involves two steps: Generating scientific hypothesis & testing hypohtesis.
Hypothesis: a statement that can be tested - about the topic of interest
Eg: Adolescents tend to be more moodier than children or adults
How to generate hypothesis: by general observation
It also helps to be very familiar with the relevant scientific literature
Literature: previously published books and articles about the topic of interest
Often the most imp source of SCIENTIFIC HYPOTHESES, is SCIENTIFIC THEORY - an interrelated set of propositions about a particular phenomenon
Example of hypothesis
Hypothesis: sexual orientation may depend on GENETIC PREDISPOSITION toward heterosexuality or homosexuality.
