On Behavior of Persons Who Eventually Find\ud Themselves as Situation Leaders:\ud A Causation Analysis

By Ed.D. Raimo J Laasonen

Abstract

The research is sequel to former attempts to\ud study how the mental organizers of the persons\ud produce possible causalities in behavior. An\ud observation category system was the device to\ud find out causal processual relation. The number\ud of the situation leaders was 35 out of whom 25\ud were men and 10 women. Reliability,\ud subjectivity, and validity of observation were\ud assessed in a novel way. The analysis with\ud probabilities included a Bayesian application\ud and an application of Gram-Schmidt process. The\ud results indicated different types of causal\ud processes exist between the mental organizer,\ud the overt behavior, and the right outcome.\ud The leaders utilize their mental organizers and\ud find the right outcome in the most probable way.\ud One of the flaws, however, was the lack of the\ud clear causalities between the organizer and the\ud overt behavior. A problem that has a wider\ud meaning, too
