Once a general process is discovered in psychology or in any other science, and once that process can be defined, discussed in theoretical terms, and reliably found, the next step is to study the parameters of the occurrence of that process. In Chapter 11, we saw summaries of some attempts to carry out this next step with general populations. In this chapter, we will see attempts to dig deeper into the processes and their parameters using case studies.
