Document Summary

Hiring is based on empirical evidence (observable proof) this thing perform well on the job. Constructs things we assume to exist, but can observe them (intelligence, job performance, conscientiousness) We assume constructs exist, and develop of definition of what intelligence may be, and create a test instrument to see if it exists, and see if the test instrument behaves how we expect it to behave. In hard sciences, we try to find if burning a substance lose mass, we construct experiment, we take a known amount of wood and put it a sealed test-tube and say it way 200 grams. We burn it and its in ashes, and we regain the textbook, and it ways the same. Einstein says we do lose mass, so our scale wasn"t good enough to detect the loose mass, it just converts it in another form.
