Ecological Cognition for Measuring Psi-Hit and Psi-Miss Online: Using K-Scores to Understand Anomalistic Psychology in Project Management Teams

Jonathan Bishop, Piet A. M. Kommers, and Kamal Bechkoum

Abstract—The human-side of project management is a topic that has been explored in project management, but not to the extent that it should be. Health and safety is of paramount importance in project management, particularly construction project management. What is often overlooked is the mental health side of health and safety and how anomalistic psychological experiences can have an adverse impact on project success. This paper proposes using ‘k-scores’ to measure psi-hit and psi-miss, or in other words the extent to which a person thinks they have had an anomalistic experience or that they have not. The measure of k-scores are derived from combining the ecological cognition framework with a parametric user model. The benefit of this is that it allows the collection of data online, such as through Microsoft Teams, Skype or Zoom.

Index Terms—Ecological cognition, project management, psi-hit, psi-miss, health and safety.
