All tests have limit: You must remember the predictions for this past election. If you only rely upon tests for something you are always letting yourself in for a letdown. You should read the new book by Michael Lewis "The Undoing Project", about 2 brilliant Israeli psychologists who investigated how we make decisions with uncertain information. Excellent and important book!
