Further investigation is warranted about the nomological
network of career adaptability, which can provide more information about the complexity of this construct.
Personality and beliefs about world revisited: Expanding the nomological
network of social axioms.
In a similar vein, Sellars (1956) proposed that our mentalist explanations of behavior do not pertain to the realm of nomological
explanations (those that state the causes of behavior), but to the realm of normative explanations (those that we commonly employ when we give reasons for our behavior).
It is not clear why the editors decided to use this umbrella term instead of the term of a nomological
Figure 2 includes testing for the nomological
validity of the Mach-BR scale by applying McClelland's recommendation to use quintiles to reduce noise in showing the validity of relationships among variables.
A meta-analytically derived nomological
network of procrastination.
For each construct, composite scores were formed and subsequently used as the input for the variables in the nomological
Taking a nomological
network approach (Cronbach & Meehl, 1955), these shared relationships suggest that noctcaelador and curiosity might share common, meaningful variance in that both involve an open cognitive style that requires mental focus.
In addition to reporting the inter-item reliability of the IRRBS and its subscales, the study presents findings on the relationship between individual and relational role balance and life satisfaction, well-being, and endorsement of mental health symptoms of anxiety and depression, as well as reported overall psychological distress, in order to validate the construct using a small nomological
network of related psychosocial constructs.

Criterion-related validity and nomological
validity were assessed relating past, present and future life satisfaction with life with the aforementioned criteria, both with traditional correlations and also within a structural equation modeling.
Content validity test was conducted by Mahmood et al (2014) for KTM and COM indicators, while Hamann et al (2013) conducted both discriminant and nomological
validity tests on PR and GR indicators.
