"How does science seek to overcome individual or group variability in perception in pursuit of truth?"

Recommended Posts

Got an 200 words homework from the book. But I dont understand any part of the TOK concepts and even the question itself.

Here's the question "How does science seek to overcome individual or group variability in perception in pursuit of truth?"

Can anyone first tell me what is individual or group variability and give me a direction to go please? Or I'll be compeletely doomed

I like the colour green, you like the colour blue. Since we like different colours the variable of colour preference is an individual variability. Things you should consider are questions like: Fred, Mark and Andrew all eat apples for breakfast everyday, they like the colour green. Kate, Mary and Joyce eat strawberries for breakfast everyday, they like the colour pink. Does this mean that if I ate strawberries everyday for breakfast I would like the colour pink? Why not? What is the value of the evidence provided? What are the difference valuables here? What do scientists have control variables?
