Unfortunately, many students and professionals in sociobehavioral sciences lack the background necessary to be intelligent consumers of research literature in areas of their interest or employment. Further, in an era of specialization, students and professionals alike frequently resort to the "services" of a "methodologist-consultant" when doing research. Regrettably, expert advice, necessary and beneficial in many situations, is frequently confused with expert prescriptions. Many researchers and doctoral students deem it proper to delegate to the "consultant" the "tasks" of analyzing the data, interpreting the results, and drawing implications from them. Following blindly consultants' prescriptions or entrusting them with the analysis of the data and interpretation of the results is nothing short of bidding them do one's thinking.
