Abstract

Endemic to theoretical and applied psychometrics is a failure to appreciate that the logic at root of each and every latent variable technology is object detection logic. The predictable consequence of a discipline’s losing sight of an organizing logic, is that superficiality, confusion, and mischaracterization are visited upon discussion. In this paper, I elucidate the detection logic that is the foundational, and unifying, logic, of latent variable technology, and discuss and dissolve a number of the more egregious forms of confusion and mischaracterization that, consequent upon its having been disregarded, have come to infect psychometrics.
