Aiming for Repeatability
To ensure that our analysis of you is as objective as possible, we measure the consistency between our practitioners on a continual basis and make sure we have a robust level of repeatability.
We achieve this repetability by having a standardized criteria of measurement and clearly defined parameters for each of the 16 types and their many developments. This also allows us to teach new practitioners how to type according to our model and to reproduce our experiments at larger scales.
Setting Up Experiment
To conduct this test, a neutral third party randomly selects ten public samples with sufficient, properly framed and high-quality footage. He or she then sends this list separately to each practitioner, who review the samples without any communication from each other for the duration of the test.
The practitioners analyze the ten samples using the Vultology Code and Definitive Vultology resources as a basis, aiming to determine which of the 16 types each sample is. They then submit their results back to the third party who reveals the outcome after everyone has submitted their reports.
There are 110 signals that are calculated when determining each person’s type. These are done using the Codifier tool.
The group consensus is then calculated as a value of consistency between the 110 items across the participants using the Cronbach’s alpha statistic.
Everyone is free to test our work by checking the methodology. So to help encourage awareness, we conduct public tests regularly, which any forum members can join into.
Our recent public/open test revealed a consensus of 90%+ across the 110 signals for our top four vultologist and ~ 80% for most of the others in a blind experiment. You can view the results in this discussion thread and participate on the next one as well.
