Step 6: Consider Open Questions: − What your study can’t answer − Involves acknowledging the weakness/limitations of your study Step 7: Try to Answer the Open Questions: − Use the weaknesses/limitations of your study to guide further research studies − Get back to the beginning when you get to the end of the process − Science is ongoing − Always more questions that need subsequent research so you start back at the beginning again 2a: The Evolutionary Basis of Thinking and Doing or the Influence on Genes on Thought and Behaviour: Why are you like that?
