You have an idea/theory in mind that lead you to hypotheses in the real world
Deductive: you dont care what the specificities is in experiencing loss, i.e. the

e.g. How many hours of sleep did he have last night?
Qualitative research: inductive; collecting writing, conducting interviews, have them
