Qualitative or quantitative?


Bad, good, evil - we can rate each object by its qualities. What does he look like? What feelings causes? What does it look like? What is he doing? These are all quality questions. Although these attributes cannot be measured or calculated, it is they who exhaustively distinguish one object from another *. As we already saw yesterday when talking about portraits, high-quality pictures provide us with a whole series of visual clues to distinguish one idea from another.
Quantity is a completely different beast **. Quantity reflects aspects of an idea that can be counted and measured, that is, associated with a “how many” type of image and represented by it. As we discussed yesterday in the situation with the purchase of bananas, for a holistic description of the idea, we need both qualitative and quantitative characteristics. Qualities create sensations, and quantities measure values.
* If all this seems to you an existential nonsense, then it is so. The word "existential" means that something exists by itself and in its place. Such a description usually scares many businessmen: this is bad, because it is qualities that make one product more attractive than another. Since qualities are difficult to measure and, consequently, transfer to graphs, we rarely see them in business presentations.

Qualitative or quantitative?

  1. Quantitative and qualitative measurements
    Qualitative assessment and quantitative measurement in psychological research and practical applications from a formal point of view can be considered as particular cases of a more general measurement procedure. In the first approximation, the assignment of numerical values ​​to represent properties can be called a measurement. As a result of the measurement, in each specific case, the measured property is associated with

  3. Qualitative and quantitative assessment of the mental development of children
    Qualitative and quantitative assessment of the mental development of children Normal distribution of children in groups Borderline I group II group III group IV group 1. Children with advanced development: a) 2 epicrizable terms (high development), b) 1 epicrisic period (accelerated development) . Children with developmental delay on 1 epicrisis period: a) 1 degree - delay 1 2 indicators; b) 2 degree -
  4. Qualitative and quantitative methods for the determination of IgA, IgG and IgM.
    Immunoglobulins are glycoproteins secreted by plasma cells. Antibody production occurs, as a rule, after antigenic stimulation. Most antigens cause simultaneous stimulation of several clones of B-lymphocytes - polyclonal stimulation. The antibodies produced by a single clone of B-lymphocytes, monoclonal antibodies, are completely identical. Between the antibodies that
  5. Determination of quantitative and qualitative characteristics of air pollution sources
    1.4.1. Determination of a single value of the emission power (g / s) 1. When determining the parameters of the sources of air pollution (API), the duration of the emission of pollutants should be taken into account. In the calculations of surface concentrations of pollutants using the normative method for calculating OND-86 [6], the emissions of pollutants into the atmosphere should be used. M (g / s), referred to the 20-minute
  6. Methods for determining the quantitative and qualitative characteristics of emissions and emissions of pollutants into the atmosphere
    1. To determine the quantitative and qualitative characteristics of emissions and emissions of pollutants into the atmosphere, instrumental and calculated (computational-analytical) methods are used. Instrumental methods are prevalent for sources with an organized emission of pollutants into the atmosphere (GOST 17.2.3.02-78). The main sources of organized emissions include: - flue and

  11. Analysis of high-quality coronarographic characteristics
    Lifetime information about the morphological state of atherosclerotic obstruction of the coronary arteries is undoubtedly important, since it allows predicting the clinical course of coronary atherosclerosis and suggest possible adverse outcomes of intracoronary interventions. However, cardiologists do not always sufficiently accurately interpret the qualitative coronary angiographic characteristics of the coronary
  12. QUANTITATIVE ASPECTS OF CLINICAL THINKING
    Lee Goldman The process of clinical thinking is difficult to explain. It is based on such factors as experience and learning, inductive and deductive thinking, interpretation of facts, whose reproducibility and value are variable, and intuition, which can be difficult to determine. To optimize clinical thinking, a number of attempts were made to quantify
  13. Qualitative assessment methods
    To date, a significant number of management personnel evaluation systems have been developed in domestic and international practice, which can be classified for various reasons. The decision on the content (or subject) of the assessment is one of the initial ones in the formation of any system. Analysis of what is the content of the assessment - namely, which aspects of management activities
  14. Quantitative changes.
    Diuresis. Diuresis determines daily (daily diuresis), and hourly (hourly diuresis) urine excretion. Daily diuresis is not constant and can vary widely depending on the water consumed and sodium chloride consumed, but still amounts to 1-2 ml / kg body weight / per hour. Older children and adults have a normal diuresis of at least 500 ml / day or more. However accepted
  15. Analysis of general and quantitative coronarographic characteristics
    In evaluating coronarograms, an analysis of the general and quantitative coronary angiographic characteristics of atherosclerotic lesions of the coronary arteries should be carried out in full. Analyzing the general coronary angiographic characteristics of the lesion of the coronary bed, it is necessary to determine the number of affected coronary arteries, the number of injuries in each artery, the segment-by-site localization of obstructions in
  16. What does “good or literate” and “bad or illiterate” PSYCHOLOGIST mean?
    So who is who? - A good psychologist plays the role of a conductor, he will teach you to solve problems yourself, finding resources inside. A bad psychologist will give you advice. - A good professional with a higher psychological or basic medical education. You can ask to show diplomas, certificates, awards. A good psychologist will be happy to boast of their achievements, bad for you
  17. Replace or maintain? (artificial or assisted ventilation)
    As you know, the work to ensure self-breathing perform respiratory muscles. It has already been mentioned above that the excessive work of the inhalation muscles in adverse conditions leads to their exhaustion and exhaustion. Ventilation completely eliminates the work of the muscles and, on the one hand, gives them rest, but on the other, the inaction of the respiratory muscles causes rapidly increasing dystrophic processes in it. AT
  18. Determination of hydrogen sulfide (qualitative reaction)
    The method is based on the interaction of hydrogen sulfide, formed during the deterioration of fish, with lead salt with the appearance of dark staining. 15 ... 25 g of the minced meat is placed in a loose layer in a bottle with a capacity of 40 ... 50 cm3. In a buksu, a strip of thick filter paper is suspended horizontally above the stuffing, on the surface of which 3 ... 4 drops of a solution of lead salt are applied on the surface facing the stuffing. Diameter
  19. Determination of ammonia (qualitative reaction)
    The method is based on the interaction of ammonia, which is formed during the deterioration of fish, with hydrochloric acid and the appearance of a cloud of ammonium. 2 ... 3 cm3 of Heber's reagent is poured into a wide tube (a mixture of one part hydrochloric acid, three parts ethanol and one part sulfuric ether), closed with a stopper and shaken two or three times. Remove the cork from the tube and immediately close it with another.
