This study represents an attempt to measure the degree of extensional agreement among a group of psychologists in their usage of certain labels, which were familiar to and commonly employed by all members of the group. Specifically, the problem was to measure the degree of agreement among the twenty psychologists as to the applicability of the three labels, hypothesis, theory and law to a group of twenty statements, each of which had been labelled in one of the three ways by the original author of the statement.
