I wish that my econ education delved more into working with quantitative data that is based upon (derived from) subjective appraisals (subjectively determined), such as with beer ratings on Untappd, which are numerical but pertain to subjective appraisals (of the beer, of the appraiser's experience with the beer).

I suspect that I'll be able to get into this more during this semester's BehavioralEconomics class.

Steps towards this

I've been considering this for establishing (constructing) some baseline of comparison for subjective appraisals at any point in time, and controlling for expectations, which I suspect play a big role in appraisals.
