    I don’t agree with that.
    It is as saying that the Newton should have not made his theory because he don’t knows what is the internal mechanism that produces gravity.
    The difference being that Newton expanded on the observations of Kepler, he didn't merely pluck the idea from thin air.

    Edit: This in reference to gravity of course

    Is this an argument against the fact that theories and models are enounced in science, and experimentally proved and then considered true without the internal mechanism being known?

    If so please detail because I didn’t quite understood your argument.
    I could also give you many other examples or I could try to explain with my own words why this is not necessarily - although if is quite obvious to me.

    going to bed now see you tomorrow!
    I hope so.

    Actually I don’t think we argue on the same thing here - you might think I am trying to claim something which I am not - because maybe I didn’t told you what I am trying to say .

    I say that in the current format - with the existing arguments (which nobody seems to be able to attack), the theory is a valid alternative to the existing theories of personality.
    I am not claiming to be scientifically proved - I just claim that is a valid alternative - there is logic in the arguments but nothing is "mathematically" proved and also there are missing pieces.
    I claim that this theory is a viable scientific theory and not a ridiculous fantasy - because of its existing arguments.

    I also say that if I will have the data I will be able to move it from the stage of valid alternative model to experimentally proved model.

    And then, scientists can research and fully understand all its internals - why time is the chosen mechanism to fluctuate personality or how to quantify the order of needs.

    I was thinking and I might be tempted to invest into getting some data if is not an exorbitant price...

    By data I mean data that is properly gathered by a specialist who has proper knowledge but also authority - so if I will reach some conclusions, those should not be dismissed because of data being gathered unprofessionally.

    I need a questionnaire with a broad range of questions and ... say around 500 subjects...

    Any idea how can I get something like that? Or where should I ask? Or is it expensive? Or can and is somebody interested to help me please?

    Is too bad data cannot be reused even if the purpose of the test is the same... or can it?
    Say if some university did some studies on astrology you think they might share/sell me their data?
