Problem eller metode?

In psychology, few people see any humor in the concept of an «animal psychologist» or a «statistical psychologist», that is, individuals who do not mind working with any problem so long as they can use, respectively, their animals or their statistics. Ultimately this must remind us of the famous drunk who looked for his wallet, not where he had lost it, but under the street lamp, «because the light is better there», or of the doctor who gave all his patients fits because that was the only sickness he knew how to cure.
