I think of qualimetrics as a highly developed metrology. It’s so explicit that they’re easier to follow along with, even though they use a lot more words to describe things in America or Europe might take only a few words.
If your cold feel turns into a warm feel, hydrate. Mostly I was bringing some closure to an unfinished bit, the inkling that there was some “Russian thing” and my surprise at stumbling upon it today from another direction. The guy I got it from, Professor David M Boje is one of those barefoot professors of old trying to tie everything together – in his case, through storytelling (very much in the mythopoetic fashion I think – nice to see again), so it’s part nuts, part genius type of stuff, so I have to be careful not to get too enamored.
Oh they’re not opposed. He’s critiquing our traditional storytelling methods and where the flaws are that need addressing – as you just did.
Traditionally, statistics are presented as in opposition to storyteling and the combination of statistics and storyteling is “empiral science”.
It’s enjoyable seeing it in one place – and I agree with your assessment 100%.
