|Part of a Model 2 series on|
Behaviorism is one of four domains comprising the Model 2 methodology, working closely with the vultology domain to perform experiments on the connection between human expressions and psychology. It tracks aspects of behavior, psychology and cognition with a statistical connection to vultology, forming psychological profiles in alignment with the expressive data. The aim of the behavioral domain is to anticipate the psychology of new subjects with a given action signature by looking at the psychology previously displayed by others possessing the same or similar action signatures.
The behavioral domain gathers information from similarly classified subjects to perform statistical analysis. There are currently three main methods under development, aimed to gather subject information.
- See main article at: Occupations
Occupations can refer to a subject's job, career, or to any activities they pursue with devotion across a long period of time. For example, "Animal Rights Activist" will classify as an occupation although it may not be a formal job title. The subject's occupations can be found in the Occupations column of the database. Statistical analysis is performed on the occupations of similarly classified types to identify relationships in the data and to make predictions.
- See main article at: Traits
Traits refer to behavioral traits, as commonly determined by psychometrics. This information is gathered through a psychometric survey designed by CT to measure energetic traits. The survey is given to volunteers upon their video submission to test the predictive power of the energetic traits when compared against their vultological classification. A positive correlation would show high marks in the same energetic traits and energetic clusters.
The subject's survey information is kept hidden from the vultologists until the classification is given, after which both results are compared and a debriefing is given to the volunteers regarding the success or failure of the prediction. Consistently false predictions between the subjects' surveys and classifications are evaluated under the CT methodology and adjustments to the model are made accordingly.
- See main article at: Motifs
Motifs refers to thematic similarities across the conversations brought forth by those of a given vultology classification. Motifs are not themselves traits but are specific topics, tropes or focal points that recur across a given classification. Examples of motifs may include "the existence of karmic cycles", "our mind's ability to overcome matter", "the value of instrumental beliefs", "the empowerment of women", "vegetarianism" or "our universal human nature." A motif matrix is currently in development which will list the motifs present with statistical significance across each vultology classification.
