A 15mn evaluation


To know, at least. Acting then.

For hundreds of years, humans have sought to decode psychological states and to classify their evolution. Enchantment, psychoanalysis, or even adolescent personality tests, these assessments have always been made based on external symptoms that one seeks to interpret. For the first time, an empirical instrument records the objective risk factors of danger. The Observatory is developing and refining an assessment by means of a questionnaire that is becoming more reliable every day.

The Online formulaire

image Based on the theory of Limited Quantity of Information (LQI), this questionnaire tallies everything that raises the rate of exposure in our daily life. These simple questions, at times intimate, pertain to the number of objects, contacts, events, or even the social situation… This anonymous individual assessment enables a genuine realization of our contemporary state.

A permanent vigilance

image Temporary, the individual rate of exposure is in perpetual evolution. The EPD therefore advises a regular screening and to remain alert to the operation of aggravating factors: marriage, professional or personal improvement, outbreaks of contagious persons in everyday life… The Observatory is aware that this recent instrument is still experimental. Further use will lead to an increase in its precision.

What does the result mean?

image (cf: Levels of danger) Riskology is the science that studies the probability of an accident and its gravity. It does not predict the future but indicates the reliability of a mechanical engine (airplane), an insurance policy, a bank, alpine travel… confronted with risks of failure, breakdown. The risk of an accident is thus envisaged on a scale of 1 to 4 that marks/tags the situation according to objective criteria, and often statistics. The risk of psychological accident is also evaluated by this process: this realization in turn enables prevention, oriented toward such and such a risk factor, and treatment in the case of too high an exposure.
Note on universal riskology: There is no such thing as zero risk or certitude of accident. 20% of the factors are causing 80% of failures...
