There is no hope of doing a perfect research (Griffiths, 1998, p.97). Everybody does research with a certain perspective which depends upon the person’s personality. Every person has his or her own exclusive desires and purpose. People do research in order to accomplish something, to fulfill the needs, and achieve the target.
Research can not be done with a person’s characteristics influencing the result. A person can not become totally impartial to his surroundings; it’s hard to fully ignore your likes and aversions. Research can never be unbiased, personal judgments will always influence it and cause it to have inaccuracies. Thus, it is agreeable that there is no hope of doing a perfect research
A person can not be faultless; researches are mainly done on a Trial and Error principle there will always be some condition which might be overlooked. This imperfectness in the research leads a man to go for perfectness in the field of interest and accordingly, it lays foundation for additional research. These endeavors by a person for additional research provide answers to the questions that were left unanswered. But given the individual factors like: prejudice in data collection and analysis of data, intelligence; research has forever remained in the pipeline of perfectness.
Research is a method to investigate new knowledge and improve what we have already learned. Its dependent on the mindset of the person’s who are carrying out the research. It’s a reflection of their views. Hence, it can never be wholly accurate.
The aim in perfect research is always of achieving the targeted conclusion; without raising anymore questions from the outcome. This may not be probable in any category of research. For example, a team of ten people are working on a research with the result expected in a week; it means the judgment skill of all the ten people in the team has led them to conclude the research in a week. The motivation, operational plan and strategy implementation of every person would have varied greatly.
Now, for the same research a different team with a diverse mindset will take a different strategy which might help them complete the same research in three days. The strategies used by each group will be varied and the results of their research would have some identical, but some special results. As the research will be the manifestation of a specific group of people.
Lastly, research can never be perfect, there is always a chance of an observation a researcher might have missed. No one is perfect and consequently, no research can ever be perfect. Humans are constantly evolving, discovering and developing. Researches are also done by humans, and therefore, can never be perfect. Unfortunately, there is no hope of doing a perfect research (Griffiths, 1998, p.97)
