For the purposes of describing human behaviour in any situation or task there is a very large number of both independent or dependent variables that could be taken into account. If we disregard the task an individual is trying to complete, there will rarely be any special reason, except scientific fashion, for choosing one set of dependent variables over another in providing the description. However, as soon as we have an hypothesis about the goals of that person, it usually becomes of great, if not paramount importance to obtain some evaluation of the adequacy of the individual’s behaviour for achieving these goals.
