Such prudence is necessary to prevent the construction of concepts-by-postulation that are unclear and likely to produce confusing results in data analysis. Therefore, we will first discuss the link between concepts-by-intuition and questions and return to the construction and the evaluation of concepts-by-postulation in Chapter 14 of this book. Exercises 1. Try to formulate questions that represent concepts-by-intuition and concepts-­ by-postulation with formative and reflective indicators for the following concepts: a.

The higher the score, the more satisfied a person is, according to this approach. ” However, this is only true if the basic theory is correct and the observed scores for satisfaction with the different aspects do not contain too many errors. This procedure is used very often for operationalization of complex concepts or, as we call them, concepts-by-postulation. The idea is to determine the different aspects of the concept-by-postulation and ask questions about these aspects. These so-called indicators can be concepts-by-intuition that can be directly converted into questions as shown for job satisfaction.

Conceptsby-postulation are also called constructs. Examples of concepts-by-intuition include judgments, feelings, evaluations, norms, and behaviors. Most of the time, it is quite obvious that a text presents a feeling (x likes y), a norm (people should behave in a certain way), or behavior (x does y). We will return to the classification of these ­concepts later. ” One item on its own in a survey cannot present an attitude or racism, for example. For such concepts, more items are necessary, and therefore, these concepts need to be defined.
